As in previous years, we have saved the best for last! Shortly before 2020 comes to an end, we present an array of product innovations for your plant automation. We are sure that we also have the right product for your application requirements!
Simply reliable: Fail-safe sensors for mobile machines
The fail-safe sensors switch into the safe state as soon as the target is detected inside the safe switch-off distance. This makes it easier to protect crane systems or industrial robots, as the targets only need to be attached at the end positions. Both the number of metallic targets and the installation complexity are considerably reduced.
On the safe side: Capacitive IIoT sensors for hazardous dust areas
These capacitive ATEX sensors are not only the first on the market to feature a standard M12 connector, they are also the first ones featuring IO-Link. This enables safe and convenient remote parameter setting, which is a great advantage e.g. in case of high tanks or limited space.
Ultra-flat illumination for vision sensors
The powerful illumination units create homogeneous light – either for virtually shadow-free object illumination or for emphasising surface characteristics such as scratches or nicks. Thanks to their extremely flat design with an overall height of only 9.8 mm, they can be mounted particularly where space is at a premium.
Conductivity sensor for clamp and hygienic pipe fittings
The sensors are used in cleaning processes in the food industry. They detect the concentration of cleaning agents, check the rinsing water for residues and are used for product validation. The solid tip design guarantees stability even if the sensor is exposed to increased stress.
More than hot air: Flow sensor ensures safety
During machining or forming processes, the use of coolants, for example, may generate toxic aerosols, smoke or vapours. Extraction systems ensure that these do not escape from the machine. The flow sensor, which operates according to the calorimetric measuring principle and has a robust full metal probe, is specially designed for this purpose.
