Photo & Inductive Sensors for Food and Beverage

Product Announcement from Baumer Ltd.

Photo & Inductive Sensors for Food and Beverage-Image

Baumer presents photoelectric and inductive sensors in hygienic and washdown design especially for applications in the food and beverage industry.

The new sensors with their smooth, groove-free V4A stainless steel housings, as well as the mounting accessories, are EHEDG-certified, Ecolab-approved, and the materials are FDA-compliant. Along with the range of EHEDG-certified reflectors and Ecolab-approved cables with protection class IP69K, Baumer offers a complete solution for position detection in the food zone. For applications not requiring a hygienic design Baumer offers sensors with washdown design. These sensors are as resistant against detergents and high-pressure waterspray as those in hygienic design, but they have conventional mounting.

The inductive sensors with hygienic design have a large operating temperature range, from -40 to +100 °C, with long-term sealing properties. This allows for versatile fields of application, from the processing of frozen products to areas with CIP processes, while also allowing for food-grade cleaning.

FNDH and FNDR 14 SmartReflect light barriers in hygienic and washdown design are specially optimized for difficult applications such as those found in food processing or packaging machines requiring IP69K, V4A stainless steel and/or extreme temperature operating ranges. These EHEDG certified sensors in stainless steel housing have a long range of 800 mm using any machine part as reflector, making them ideal for the 60 cm wide conveyor belts typically found in food processing. The elimination of the reflector as the weak spot ensures an increased process reliability. Thanks to the SmartReflect principle, the sensor function is not impaired by contamination or process-related changes of the machine part.
