Important news related to the sensors developed by the Baumer Group, one of the world leaders in the production of sensor technology, encoders, measuring instruments and components for automated image processing.


At the end of January, Baumer’s AlphaProx inductive distance sensors were nominated among the sector magazine Elektronik‘s Products of the Year 2020, thanks to the speed in providing measuring values while ensuring reliability and precision.

A few weeks later, the Group introduced its new products for the railway industry (a sector that has long relied on Baumer sensors’ precision) – the new multi-unit axle encoder BPIV2 and the temperature sensors TE2 and TCR6.



The unprecedented feature of BPIV2, which makes it unique in the current offer on the market, is to include 4 independent encoders that can be configured separately, in order to effectively manage the various train sub-systems, which need an axle encoder each, since each one operates independently from the others.


When measuring the temperature of power electronics, diesel engines, or cooling systems, the new temperature testers TE2 and TCR6 assure an accuracy of +/- 0.1K, guaranteeing operators to steer locomotives and trains with zero error while optimizing diesel and electricity consumption.
