These days, safety at work is of central importance, and this trend is likely to continue in the coming years. Individual requirements are equally varied. Baumer has responded by expanding its portfolio of inductive sensors in the ATEX sector. Whether analog, three-wire or Namur, the sensor specialist is now offering new products for all three interfaces. They are insensitive to dust and other contaminants and thus ideally suited for plant in industries such as food and wood processing, paper and plastic manufacture and pharmaceuticals.
The measuring IWRM 12I9704/S14X linear sensor, it has been designed according to the latest ATEX standards, so that the customer can make use of the latest EX-concepts. Furthermore what immediately strikes you about is its compact design. It is easier to install and perfect for positioning in the most confined spaces. It is the only inductive distance sensor worldwide in an M12 housing for ATEX 2D. The sensor has a 4 mm measuring distance and gives reliable and repeatable measurements with a resolution of up to 1 micron. In the IFRM 12 three-wire version, Baumer supplies a complete portfolio for ATEX 3D. The cylindrical M12 housing is available in two lengths, and PNP/NPN and normally open / normally closed versions are also on offer. There are a total of 8 sensors with a 4 mm sensing distance. This flexibility simplifies sensor selection and makes the design process much easier, because there is now a perfect solution for a wide range of different applications. No longer do complex compromises have to be made. Another plus is that this type of ignition protection requires no additional electronics.
Baumer has expanded their range of variants with Namur output. Here, special attention has been paid to additional connectivity. The new connector and cable versions offer an even wider range of applications.
