Labeling machines
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

Pick-and-place robots
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

OM70 High Performance Laser Distance Sensors

OM70 laser line High Performance Sensoren for demanding surfaces

OM70 laser line High-Performance Sensors for demanding surfaces
The new high performance OM70 laser point and laser line distance sensors from Baumer combine high-precision measurement technology and easy handling in the automation industry. Thanks to repeatable measurements in the sub-micrometer range and minimal linearity deviations, the sensors enable reliable measurement of components as well as high-precision positioning of objects or grippers. The sensors guarantee extremely high process stability despite variations in temperature or varying ambient light conditions. The OM70 laser point sensors are suitable for position and height checks of small components and objects thanks to their very small spot size. The very fine laser line of the OM70 laser line sensors offers high precision even for demanding surfaces.

Special variants for tolerance measurement allow an efficient check of the dimensional accuracy of objects. By teaching in a reference, the OM70 sensors directly determine the deviation from the target measurement. The digital output can be parameterized accordingly. But the sensors are not only convincing because of their performance, but also because of their simple operation. The parameterization can be carried out directly on the sensor via the clearly visible touch display with an integrated live monitor.

Efficient and flexible fluid management with the new Baumer FlexFlow family of flow and temperature sensors

FlexFlow flow and temperature sensors are available with various process connections and rod lengths

Image result for baumer flex flowWith their FlexFlow family of flow and temperature sensors, Baumer has expanded its process sensor portfolio. Based on the calorimetric measurement principle, the FlexFlow family can monitor both flow velocity as well as media temperature. The sensors have IO-Link and, depending on settings and connections, either two switching outputs or one switching and one analog output (4…20 mA/ 0…10 V). The PF20H and PF20S versions are suitable for hygienic and industrial applications.

The combination of two measuring functions in one sensor reduces the number of measuring points in closed systems and minimizes costs of installation, service, and storage. Thanks to their symmetrical, centered design, the sensors can be optimally installed in the process independent of their installation position and orientation. This guarantees precise measurements and process safety.

Several sensors can be simultaneously configured via IO-Link. This simplifies switching point adjustment for different process stages during setup or batch changeover and saves time. Diagnostic data polling and evaluation is possible at all times, increasing system uptime.
FlexFlow sensors have a robust stainless steel housing with integrated electronics and evaluation unit. Complex wiring and control cabinet assembly, as well as additional user interfaces, are therefore not required. This simplifies operation and allows efficient process management.

All models are temperature resistant to 150°C and thus CIP and SIP-capable.

Choosing the right PLC panel

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.

11/18/2016

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. Courtesy of: L&S ElectricControlling 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
