Sensors for the Welding Area

Sensors for the Welding Area

Thanks to their particularly robust housing design, the sensors for the welding area are insensitive to high temperatures, flying sparks and welding spatter. This makes them particularly suitable for use in harsh industrial areas such as the automotive industry or machine tool construction.

Long-Range Laser Distance Sensors P2PY




 
  • Durable housing made of stainless steel 316L (1.4404/V4A) – also for welding spatter and flying sparks 
  • High mechanical stability and resistance against shocks and impacts
  • Replaceable PMMA lens with special coating for increased protection
  • Optional replaceable lens made of CR-39 for increased welding field 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.

Welding Field Resistant Inductive Sensors with Correction Factor 1




 
  • Welding field resistant thanks to Teflon coating (sleeve, sensor cap, nuts)
  • Robust against magnetic direct and alternating fields up to min. 200 mT
  • Very high switching frequencies up to 4,200 Hz
  • High switching distances of up to 50 mm with correction factor 1

Inductive sensors detect metal objects contactlessly through electromagnetic induction. Sensors with correction factor 1 have an identical switching distance on different metals and thus enable precise detection of varying materials.

The welding field resistant sensors are available in different formats and with different detection ranges; installation is flush or non-flush depending on the application area.

Welding Field Resistant Protective Housings for Sensor Solutions





 
  • Robust stainless steel housing for optimum protection of the integrated sensor 
  • Suitable protective housings available for different designs (M, 1N, P, 1P and TA)
  • Replaceable protective screen for extended service life
Tutorials icon white

The protective housing for welding applications made from V2A stainless steel or stainless steel-plastic combination enable the integration of sensors with plastic housing in rough welding applications. The integrated sensors in M, 1N, P, 1P and TAformat are optimally protected against flying sparks and welding spatter in the protective housing. 
The protective housings are complemented by extensive system components for optimum mounting.

Weld-Resistant Protective Housings for Image Processing Solutions







 
  • Robust metal housing for optimum protection of the integrated profile sensor 
  • Replaceable protective screen for extended service life
  • Integrated cooling and rinsing
