Sensors for Harsh Industry

Sensors for Harsh Industry

Thanks to their particularly robust housing design, the sensors for the HeavyDuty range are not sensitive to shocks and impacts and are therefore particularly suitable for use in harsh industrial areas such as machine tool or plant engineering.
They are also resistant to aggressive coolants and lubricants. Thanks to a high degree of protection of at least IP67/IP68, the sensors can also be installed in wet environments.

Photoelectronic Sensors in 2K Miniature Design

  • Stainless steel 316L housing (1.4404/V4A) for high corrosion, coolant and lubricant resistance
  • High thermal resistance
  • Indestructible laser labeling for permanent visibility
  • High mechanical stability and resistance against shocks and impacts

Photoelectronic sensors use light to detect or count objects contactlessly and to measure distances using light. The high-quality 2K miniature design in stainless steel 316L (1.4404/V4A) is available as a reflex sensor with background suppression, long-range laser distance sensor, energetic reflex sensor, through-beam sensor, universal retro-reflex sensor and retro-reflex sensor for transparent objects. Depending on the intended use, different types of light, such as blue light, red light or red laser light, are available.

The photoelectronic sensors in 2K format are part of the PNG//smart family. They have an aligned optical axis and offer smart communication via IO-Link and condition monitoring.

You can find further information on the PNG//smart technology here.

Long-Range Laser Distance Sensors P2PY

  • Corrosion-resistant housing made of stainless steel 316L (1.4404/V4A)
  • Resistant to oils, coolants and lubricants
  • High mechanical stability and resistance against shocks and impacts
  • High chemical material resistance

Long-range laser distance sensors with wintec are high-performance transit time sensors that work with red laser. As a result, they cover large working ranges and reliably detect objects even at great distances. 

The latest wintec generation with DS technology delivers precise results up to 10 meters and sets itself apart in particular by the fact that it reliably detects objects regardless of their color or surface condition, such as gloss – even in extreme inclined positions.

weFlux² Series Flow Sensors

  • Robust stainless steel 316L housing (1.4404/V4A) with high resistance to chemicals and cleaning agents
  • Laser-welded housing for high leak-tightness (protection class IP67/IP69K or IP68/IP69K)
  • Flexible integration into systems and machines thanks to position-independent installation in the pipe 
  • Precise measurement results without alignment after flow

Fluid sensors detect parameters such as pressure, flow, temperature or level in liquid or gaseous media. weFlux² flow sensors in the stainless steel 316L housing measure the flow velocity of aqueous liquids at up to 400 cm/s and the medium temperature in the range of –25 to +150 °C. 

weFlux² flow sensors use a specially developed calorimetric measuring principle in which the measuring probe is heated and the flow is measured using the heat dissipated through the flowing medium. This also enables the temperature to be determined at the same time, thus reducing costs and mounting space otherwise required for temperature sensors.
