Successful SPS IPC Drives 2018 for Leuze electronic
At the international trade fair for electric automation systems and components, SPS IPC Drives, from November 27 to 29 in Nuremberg, the sensor people from Leuze electronic presented their competence in Safety at work and Industry 4.0.
Owen, December 7, 2018 – With this year’s exhibit at SPC IPC Drives, sensor expert Leuze electronic focused on its expertise in safety: Based on its MLC safety light curtains, the optical sensor manufacturer developed the sensorless Smart Process Gating as an alternative to the muting process. This was chosen by readers and winner of GIT Safety Award 2019. Another safety highlight was the RSL 400 safety laser scanner whose new PROFINET/PROFIsafe models can very easily be integrated in industrial networks and are also available in an AIDA-compliant version for German automakers. Also new was the combination of the RSL safety technology with a high-quality measurement value output for the navigation of automated guided vehicles (AGVs). In addition to its safety solutions, which protruded from a yellow wall, smart, Industry 4.0-ready solutions were a further focal point of the sensor people's trade fair appearance this year. The sensor people used practical application examples from the beverage industry to show how condition monitoring and predictive maintenance function. They help the user plan maintenance intervals in a targeted manner and thereby avoid unexpected, costly system downtime. Leuze electronic was also present at the trade show booth of the OPC Foundation. Press journalists were invited to a press breakfast on the second day of the trade show at which Managing Director Ulrich Balbach provided detailed information about this year's trade show highlights as well as on the current financial year and a preview for 2019.
