Baumer Launches DST55R Strain Sensor That is Made of Category C5-M Corrosion-Resistant Materials

Press Release Summary:

The DST55R Strain Sensor is offered with measuring ranges of ±100 µm/m, ±250 µm/m, ±500 µm/m and ±1000 µm/m. The sensor can be operated in -40 to +85°C temperature range and features digital CANopen interface. It is designed for use in tough outdoor conditions like mobile automation and comes with IP69K protection rated seal. The unit is less sensitive to mechanical disruption and the CANopen interface allows simple integration into existing bus systems.

DST55R Strain Sensor with Long-Term Seal for Increased Operational Safety in Tough Outdoor Conditions

Baumer is extending its portfolio with the DST55R range of strain sensors with long-term seal, offering a cost-effective solution for measuring in tough outdoor conditions. The sensors are a significant improvement on the standard models on the market due to their category C5-M corrosion-resistant materials, IP69K protection rated seal and the Baumer proTect+ impermeability concept as well as their digital CANopen interface, and extended operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C. They are particularly suitable for industrial applications in the outdoor environment such as mobile automation.

Thanks to their intelligent design, the use of durable materials and the clever impermeability concept, these strain sensors have long-term protection against moisture and dust. Together with their high measuring accuracy, extremely good repeatability of measured results, and low inherent stiffness, they guarantee safe monitoring and control of demanding processes even in extreme weather conditions such as applications on coastlines.
The robust strain sensors are based on DMS technology. They are available with integrated electronics and options for a voltage output or a CANopen interface. The latter allows simple integration into existing bus systems with minimum cabling requirements, is resistant to interference, and offers a more accurate resolution.

Factory calibration to elongation allows straightforward installation without having to calibrate with a separate force sensor. This increases the measuring accuracy and saves time on commissioning and during servicing.
The sensors are available ex-works in a variety of measuring ranges from ±100 µm/m, ±250 µm/m, ±500 µm/m and ±1000 µm/m. A variety of applications can be covered by just one sensor variant which means low stock levels and reduced costs. 
With their innovative measuring geometry, the DST55R strain sensors are significantly less sensitive to mechanical disruption. The result - precise measurements, extremely tight control and, last but not least, greater process security and quality.
