The sensors come with category C5-M corrosion-resistant materials, IP69K protection rated seal, and the Baumer Protect+ impermeability concept. They also provide a digital CANopen interface, and extended operating temperature range of -40 °C to +85 °C. They are particularly suitable for industrial applications in the outdoor environment such as mobile automation.

The strain sensors are based on DMS technology. They are available with integrated electronics and options for a voltage output or a CANopen interface. The latter allows integration into existing bus systems with cabling requirements, is resistant to interference, and offers a more accurate resolution, said the company.

Factory calibration to elongation allows straightforward installation without having to calibrate with a separate force sensor. The sensors are available ex-works in a variety of measuring ranges from ±100 µm/m, ±250 µm/m, ±500 µm/m, and ±1000 µm/m. A variety of applications can be covered by just one sensor variant.
