Inductive Sensors for Outdoor Applications
Product Announcement from Baumer Ltd.
Hardly any other application demands more from a sensor than outdoor deployment. Especially for these demanding applications Baumer has developed particularly robust inductive sensors.
The switching and measuring Series IFRR and IWRR inductive sensors provide exceptionally dependable operation, and thanks to the proTect+ impermeability concept, they are completely sealed even after many temperature cycles.
To meet proTect+ standards, the sensors are subjected to five days of rigorous testing, including shock testing in water and air over the entire temperature range. The extended temperature range from -40 to +80 °C is unequaled in measuring sensors of this class and allows greater lifespan in hot or cold climes.
The non-contact inductive sensors are ultra-resistant to harsh environments with salt water, oils and aggressive detergents and offer great sensing distances. They are especially suited for the demanding safety requirements at both on- and off-shore wind turbines, solar wafer manufacturing, heavy vehicles and in other outdoor applications.
