For any machine requiring a fixed guard-door or cover, the YSR series ensures reliable state monitoring (door open or closed). Thanks to their serial connection capability, YSR types are particularly suitable for applications using multiple sensors, such as long packaging or assembly lines. These RFID-coded devices are classified type 4 according to ISO 14119.
RFID technology enables the user to assign a unique code to each sensor and actuator system, which greatly reduces the risk of tampering. YSR sensors can also be connected in series via the OSSD output and inputs, allowing up to 30 sensors to connect with just one relay or controller.
Since each sensor can provide individual feedback, it is possible to identify which guard-doors are open and which are closed. This is particularly useful when many sensors are connected in series.
The YSR series is part of a range of non-contact safety sensors used to monitor guard-doors, hoods or covers. Thanks to non-contact switching and coded RFID communication, the service life of these compact sensors is very long. Housings are ECOLAB-approved and rated to IP6K9K, making them suitable for washdown applications.
Safety level is category 4 according to ISO 13849-1.

For any machine requiring a fixed guard-door or cover, the YSM series ensures reliable state monitoring (door open or closed). A magnetically coded system (type 4 according to ISO 14119) makes the YSM series immune to mutual interference and highly resistant to tampering. It is also possible to mount the actuator behind a stainless steel plate, which further reduces accessibility.

The newly developed YBB Type 2 series comprises a complete range of 30 mm resolution hand protection devices for all your Type 2, PL c, SIL 1 applications.
The rugged aluminum housing and PMMA screen are suitable for applications in almost any kind of industrial environments. Quick and simple installation is achieved by 5-pin M12 connector, integrated alignment aids, and the mounting brackets also included.
Simple wiring and installation
Protective heights from 150 mm to 1827 mm
Operating distance up to 12 m
Supply voltage: 24 VDC +/-20%
Protection class: IP 65 + IP 67
Operating temperature: 0…50°C
Safety rating: Type 2, category 2, PL c, SIL 1
Resolution: 30 mm
Output: 2 x PNP
Certification: TÜV SÜD, CE
For the operators of fully automated product labeling machines, the hazard involved is mostly slight.
If the result of the risk assessment allows the use of a Type 2 / PL c / SIL 1 safety light curtain, a protected machine opening can be used to interrupt the conveyor or material feeding as well as the labeling process itself as soon as an operator reaches into the protective field of the light curtain.
Furthermore, the same installation can be used to detect a material jam or products that have tipped over.
Simple wiring with standard M12 connectors
Ingress protection degree IP 65 + IP 67
Easy-to-use mounting brackets included
Many pick and place tasks are performed with the help of small robots, which represent a relatively modest hazard to staff. If the result of the risk assessment allows the use of a Type 2 / PL c / SIL 1 safety light curtain, the robot arm movements can simply be stopped if an operator reaches into the process during operation.
This then protects very effectively both the operator and the machinery.
Cost-effective and safe solution
Robust mechanical design
Operating distance up to 12 m
Laser cutting machines with moving tables
Laser cutters with fast-moving tables holding the working pieces represent a risk to machine operators. A safety light curtain can be considered to prevent people from reaching into or entering the ongoing process. In case of intrusion during a potentially dangerous phase, table movement can be stopped promptly.
If the result of the risk assessment allows the use of a Type 2 / PL c / SIL 1 safety light curtain, the protection is very effective. In addition, a direct view onto the working process is possible with no physical barriers that complicate access to the machine or finished parts.
Protective heights available from 150 mm to 1827 mm
Quick response time allows installation close to the working process
Mirror columns available for multi-side protection
The compact GIM500R inclination sensors in robust aluminum housing are ideal for use in harsh environments.
When it comes to tough outdoor use, many sensors reach their limits. Inclination sensors by sensor expert Baumer stand for maximum reliability and durability even in a harsh environment. Thanks to the extremely robust and resilient design, the new GIM500R sensors are ideal for outdoor applications in mobile automation and ensure maximum system uptime.
The GIM500R inclination sensors excel by ultra-high accuracy up to ±0.1˚ for absolute reliability and precise positioning. The E1-compliant and uncompromising design with optimal EMC properties, IP 69K protection and corrosion resistance up to C5-M is particularly addressing demanding outdoor applications. Their shock and vibration resistance up to 200 g respectively 20 g and the wide temperature range from +85 down to -40°C make the inclination sensors particularly durable in temperature fluctuations and any type of soiling. The integrated EN13849-compliant firmware meets the highest requirements on reliability which allows for standard components to be used in functional safety systems up to PLd level. Another hallmark of the new series is optional redundant system design where required.
Inclination sensors of the GIM500R series stand out by their compact aluminum housing, high cost-efficiency and maximum flexibility in system design. They fit in the confined installation space prevailing in mobile automation and heavy vehicles.
Inclination sensors – angular measurement in harsh environments:
Programming logic controller (PLC) panels come in almost every shape and size with some of them being freestanding and others being wall-mounted and choosing the right solution for a particular application can be difficult.
David Manney, L&S Electric
Controlling equipment has always been of interest in industrial applications. Before modern-day computers came into existence, a series of relays controlled that equipment and may have numbered into the thousands. Any updates required expensive and time-consuming manual labor by electricians who needed to rewire all of the relays.
The adoption of digital computers gave rise to the modern programmable logic controller (PLC): a digital computer utilized for the automation of various processes within an industrial facility. The PLC is designed for applications ranging from controlling parts of an assembly line to automating and controlling the light fixtures in an establishment.
There are similarities between a personal computer and a controller. Both a PLC and a personal computer have a CPU, memory, and input/output (I/O) units. On the other hand, a controller is built for industrial applications. It is designed to operate under harsh environments often seen in many facilities. In essence, the PLC and a PC gather and release information.
The PLC panel can be used in a wide range of industrial applications, primarily for automating processes and increasing control over critical systems. The processor controls electrical power and is commonly referred to as an automation panel. PLCs are utilized in many industries including:
Automotive industry: the automotive industry is one of the largest users of PLCs and one of the first industries to embrace factory automation fully. The industry still makes use of automation through PLC panels on an ongoing basis.
Marine: from controlling specific parts of the vessel to a full vessel system, it is an important part of maintaining operation where failures can cause severe consequences.
Power generation: PLC panels can be used for some processes within a power generation facility, such as automating the soot blower controls
Paper making: PLC panels can be used for controlling many processes within the paper mill industry.
Automation control: The applications that achieve automation through the use of PLCs include HVAC systems, car wash systems, material handling, and conveyor systems
