Hygienic applications may require more than one type of sensor. With its newest sensors, Baumer addresses measurements that require photoelectric and inductive sensing. To meet hygienic and washdown requirements, the sensors have smooth, groove-free V4A stainless steel housings. In addition, mounting accessories are EHEDG-certified, Ecolab-approved and the materials are FDA-compliant.
Baumer developed its proTect+ concept for higher impermeability and guarantees a higher sensor performance and lifetime. In addition to traditional IP68 and IP69K impermeability tests, special endurance testing exposes the sensors to continuously changing temperature cycles to ensure higher reliability.
