Baumer Electric Sensors are among the best available. Now, the inductive outdoor sensors IFRR (proximity switches) and IWRR (distance -measuring sensors) by Baumer have passed the latest corrosion tests with flying colors. Both sensors meet the requirements of the highest corrosiveness category C5-M. Both sensors are therefore ideally suited to use in demanding ambient conditions at sea or on the coast, e.g. in wind power stations.Digital inductive sensors are mainly used to detect the nacelle position and the rotor speed. Measuring sensors are applied for monitoring the brakes and the shaft deflection. To meet the requirements of the maximum corrosiveness category C5-M, the sensors were subjected to a 1440-hour or 60-day salt spray test in accordance with ISO 9227, followed by a 720-hour condensation-water resistance test in accordance with ISO 6270. The results show that these inductive sensors meet the highest corrosion resistance demands, and Baumer can guarantee a very long service life for its products.
