DSE-HIE: Future-Proof, EHEDG-Compliant Sensor Electronics

The innovative Digital Sensor Electronics (DSE) is ideal for use in highly dynamic and automated weighing and industrial automation applications. The signals provided from analog strain gauge-based sensors such as load cells and force transducers are digitized and can be output in line with all common industrial Ethernet protocols (PROFINET RT/IRT and EtherCAT) via the integrated multi-protocol unit. The Ethernet interface and simple installation close to the sensor allow for time-efficient integration. The standardized CiA 461 command set further reduces the time required to get the system up and running. An intuitive web interface facilitates both the parameterization and the acquisition of measured values, making any additional software unnecessary.

The DSE is housed in a compact stainless-steel enclosure. Its hygienic EHEDG-compliant design allows its use in applications requiring the most stringent hygiene and cleanliness standards, such as in the food and beverages, pharmaceutical-, in industrial process- and factory  automation. Owing to its IP67/68/69K degree of protection, the device is optimally protected and can be cleaned with high-pressure cleaners or employing CIP (clean-in-place) systems.
