Baumer is launching a range of GIM500R inclination sensors that are designed to excel in harsh outdoor environments such as railways, mechanical handling and external mobile automation applications, including those where functional safety is required.
Thanks to their robust and resilient design, the new GIM500R sensors are suitable for outdoor applications in mobile automation and ensure maximum system uptime. For example, they ensure precise and reliable positioning with accuracy up to +/-0.1 degrees, shock and vibration resistance up to 200 'g' and 20 'g' respectively, and a wide operating temperature range from +85 down to -40degC. In addition, the sensors are E1 compliant, with optimal EMC properties, IP69 protection and corrosion resistance up to C5-M.
The integrated EN 13849 compliant software meets the highest requirements for reliability and allows for standard components to be used in functional safety systems up to PLd. They also feature an optional redundant system design where required.
Among the challenges that designers of mobile automation systems face, such as transportation or heavy vehicles, is very limited space. Therefore the compact yet robust aluminium housing of the GIM500R series ensures high cost-efficiency and maximum flexibility for system designers.
