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.

Angular measurement in harsh environments

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.

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.

multicon AccuDrive – Baumer

Now format alignments are as easy as snapping your fingers … multicon AccuDrive

  • Minimized machine editing time
  • Quick and reliable format realignments
  • Elimination of editing errors
  • Minor reject rate after format realignments

Baumer designed a flexible shaft positioning system with several configurations and different stages of automation that adapts to individual needs. The single system components can also be implemented in combination with each other at one and the same machine. Electronic support in manual operations is as possible as automated positioning by servo drives AccuDrive now fills the gap between mechanical hand wheels and servo drives and is the perfect solution for partially automated format alignments at wood and metal sheet processing, packaging and printing machines.
The mobile actuator looks like a power tool and is capable of communicating by infrared interface with position displays directly mounted on the positioning shafts. Status LEDs indicate the operator which shaft requires realignment and in which positioning order. Any mix-ups and resulting collisions are eliminated, furthermore handling is very easy. The power tool is simply docked to the shaft to be positioned, and the respective position display transmits the commands for clockwise or counter-clockwise rotation or slow speed. When reaching the target position the power tool stops automatically.
This means a considerable improvement to the operator, especially when a format implies many shaft align-ments. Result: less manual work and improved machine performance by reduced set-up times. The position-ing operation is always in correct direction (for example shaft tolerance compensation) and formats become electronically reproducible profiles less any risk of editing errors. The positioning system comprises a compact controller capable of administering up to 100 profiles that are made available for later recalls to maximum 32 position displays. The position displays provide a 7 segment backlit display easy to read even at diffuse light.

Precision mechanical switches My-Com® by Baumer

Micrometer precision: 70 times more accurate than a hair is thick! Repeat accuracy of 1 micrometer –

Friday, 26. March 2010

With a repeat accuracy of 1 micrometer, Baumer’s My-Com precision switch is the most precise mechanical limit switch.

  • Extra robust probe tips
  • Protection class IP 67
  • Operating temperature from -20 to +75

The robust probe tips made of high-performance ceramic, stainless steel or spherically ground ruby enable the My-Com to operate reliably even under harsh conditions with consistent repeat accuracy. For applications in moist or heavily dusty environment the precision switch is available with protection class IP 67. Its operating temperature ranges from -20 to +75 °C. The field of application s for mechanical limit switches is very broad. Due to the versatile features as well as its compact housing designs (M8 x 0.5), the My-Com is very interesting for machine tool building or manufacturers of automatic assembly and handling machines. The precision switch is also used to gauge various measuring equipment or for calibration and quality control during the production process.
The ingenuity of the product that at the same time guarantees a high number of switching cycles is the simplicity of the construction of the switch. Only three moving parts as well as high-quality materials ensure the repeat accuracy of +/- 0.001 mm and that an activating force of only 30 cN is sufficient to operate a My-Com.
