Baumer, a manufacturer of sensor solutions, announced the launch of a new range of inductive sensors that are suitable for distance measurement and object identification.
The IWRR/IFRR sensors come in analog and digital versions and have the ability to withstand temperature changes between -40 ºC and + 80 ºC. The sensors are sealed against contaminants and moisture and comply with IP69 and IP67 standards.
The inductive sensors are impermeable in demanding environments, which involve fluctuating temperature conditions. The sensors have a Mean Time To Failure of more than 100 years. They also have the potential to withstand exposure to oils and salt water, making them suitable for off and on-shore wind turbines.
The IWRR/IFRR sensors come in nickel-plated brass housings that are IP67-rated for onshore applications. The measuring sensors are used for shaft deflection and brake monitoring whereas the digital inductive sensors are utilized for identifying rotor speed and nacelle position. The sensors are also ideal for various applications such as solar wafer manufacturing, forestry and refuse collection machines, and for heavy vehicles.
