Load Cells monitor static and dynamic forces.
Designed to operate in harsh industrial environments, DLRx Load Cells can be used to measure both compression and tension/compression over 0.5-100 kN range in static or dynamic applications. Designs start at 32 mm in diameter and are built with IP65/IP67 protection and stainless steel housings. Featuring dynamic signal processing and accuracy to 0.3%, sensors offer transverse sensitivity...Read More »
Photoelectric Sensor detects overlapping flat objects.
Capable of detecting 0.2 mm thick sheets at rates up to 600,000 pieces/hr, SCATEC-2 Long Range Photoelectric Sensor is designed for non-contact counting of overlapped paper sheets, newspapers, and flat objects conveyed in lap or shingle stream, regardless of direction of travel. Measuring range is 0-120 mm with object speed of 0-2 m/s for edges greater than 0.3 mm and 0-1 m/s for edges greater...Read More »
Razor-Sharp Positioning - Razor-Sharp Measurement
With the new generation of line sensors PosCon and ParCon from Baumer, the edges of paper webs can be controlled more accurately, positions of wires determined more exactly or the width of a plastic profile at the outlet of an extruder measured more accurately. The sensor detects the edges of the objects along a narrow measuring line with a resolution of up to 0,03 mm. Depending on the mode,...Read More »
Angular measurement tasks on moving equipment such as dancer arms or articulated joints are often handled using carbon-film potentiometers. The load placed on the wiper contacts by the fast, continuous motion is enormous and the resulting wear is obvious. The new magnetic rotary sensors of the MDRM / MDFM family provide a reliable, maintenance-free solution. The sensors, operating on the...Read More »
Chemically Resistant Ultrasonic Sensors
The new UNAR sensor range from Baumer was developed specifically for use in aggressive industrial environments. The M18x1 sensor housing is made of high-quality stainless steel 1.4435 and the front of the transducer is protected by a chemically resistant Parylene coating. This is characterized by an excellent barrier effect against inorganic acids, alkalis and organic solvents, as well as steam....Read More »
Install and Forget
17/04/2008 This is the motto behind Baumer's new high-grade steel sensors. Baumer is now introducing a generation of high-grade steel sensors that can be used in virtually any product. Combining this with Baumer's signature sensor miniaturization allows simple integration of the sensors into customer-designed housings. With decades of experience in temperature and pressure sensors, its product...Read More »
Absolute Grip on Hollow Shafts
18/06/2008 Compact FlexiDrive positioning drives are now also available with angular gears and continuous hollow shafts. They are mounted directly on the shaft without any additional coupling components. This concept allows space-saving installation. They can be mounted from either side and offer a variety of fixing methods. An optional shaft extension allows manual adjustment even when no power...Read More »
Positioning Drives feature compact, modular design.
Integrating absolute encoders with motors, drives, gears, and connectors, FlexiDrive systems offer 14-bit single-turn and 18-bit multi-turn resolution. Delivering explicit and continuous position measurement, space saving drives can be used on shafts, spindles, lead screws, rollers, webs, and other moving parts found in machine automation. Systems can be used to determine current position of...Read More »
Non-Contact Magnetic Sensors offer 360
Resistant to vibration, dirt, and moisture, MDRM/MDFM sensors are designed to replace potentiometers used to measure angles and determine location of continuously moving parts. Maintenance-free, IP67-rated products can measure 360-Read More »
