Sensors, Safety and Control Technology for plant and machinery
Klaschka has been developing and manufacturing electronic components and systems for the automation of plant and machinery for more than 50 years. These products (Sensors, Measuring Relays, Controllers, Double Blank Detectors and Sheet Thickness Sensors) are employed for detecting, positioning and checking, for controlling and regulating, for pulse rate detection, for monitoring and detecting errors, and for operating and observing. Certified Safety Switches and Controllers are available for safety-critical applications.
Non-contact sensors (proximity switches, inductive, capacitive and ultrasonic sensors) are used for precision sensing of dynamic motions. Klaschka "All Metal" Sensors and Pulse Sensors are specially designed for very high speeds and challenging applications with switching frequencies higher than 10 kHz.
In combination with measurement relays and controllers, non-contact identification (RFID) and tamper-proof safety switches with extremely large switching distances (safety and security) ensure reliable process steps in plant and machinery.
Klaschka offers a wide range of Double Blank Detectors for sheet detection and thickness measurement in the metal-forming industries. The universal BDK-Doublesheet-Detector-system is firmly established in the automotive industry. For applications that do not need this functionality, there are lower-cost systems of Double Sheet Detectors, Doublesheet Controllers and Sheet Thickness Sensors. These are used in many fields when handling and processing metal and metal-coated materials to avoid damage and downtime.
Typical applications are: Production lines for automotive industries, presses and forming technology, textile machines, printing machines, packaging machines, conveying technology, machine tools, robotics and assembly technology, water and sewage systems, railed and commercial vehicles.
Klaschka sensors in industrial plant and machinery are basic elements for automation. Since these non-contact, free-of-wear sensors work contactless and have no effect on the part they detect, their service life is almost unlimited. They are insensitive against pollution and can be used for a large ambient temperature range.
Proximity switches detect, with short response times, the final and intermediate positions for rotary and linear motions of machine parts.
Fast pulse sensors, equipped with evaluation devices, determine incrementally the rotational speed, stroke rate, and frequency as well as the position and the speed of moving machine parts.
Distance and position sensors supply either a current or a voltage (as option) which is analog to the measured variable. They are inexpensive absolute-value-devices with short operating times.
Klaschka measuring relays and controllers comprise a wide range of controlling and monitoring devices for installation in plant and machinery and for control cabinets. The shock-resistant fibreglass-reinforced plastic housing is fire-resistant and weather-proof. The devices can be snapped on to a standard mounting rail or secured with screws to a mounting plate.
Measuring relays can be used e.g. for current, tension, isolation, phase and frequency:
