Baumer Laser Copy Counter - Counts precisely and reliably

Manufacturer: Baumer

The SCATEC laser copy counter family is suitable for counting newspapers and magazines in a lap stream. The SCATEC detection principle is based on an optical edge detection system patented by Baumer, which makes the SCATEC family extremely insensitive to color. With a matte or glossy finish, all print products are scanned reliably.

The SCATEC operating principle:

  • Non-contact thanks to optical principle.
  • One laser light source – two receivers (V and R).
  • Reacts to object edges that face the laser beam.
  • If an edge passes through the laser beam, the relationship of the reflected light (v/r) to both receiver’s changes and the object is detected.
  • Known interferences are specifically targeted and suppressed.


SCATEC features an optical functional principle which enables contact less operation. Because the most sensitive version of the SCATEC family can even detect edges down to 0.1 mm, single sheets can also be reliably detected and counted.

Baumer Bearingless encoders - absolute and incremental

Manufacturer: Baumer

Baumer's bearingless encoders offer non-contact operation. Most are magnetic and all of them are virtually wear-free. Their reliable function is not affected by dust, dirt or humidity. They are extremely resistant to shocks and vibrations and have a virtually unlimited service life.

All Baumer bearingless encoders feature a very short design, so they are perfectly suited for use in cramped installation conditions and on direct drives.

Compared to other measuring methods, the magnetic measuring principle tolerates a wide air gap between the sensor and material measure. These encoders can thus operate reliably even during large shaft movements.

Incremental bearingless encoders

  • For shafts up to Ø740 mm
  • Line count up to 524288
  • Square wave and sinusoidal signals

Absolute bearingless encoders

  • For shafts up to Ø340mm
  • Resolution up to 17 bit per revolution
  • SSI or CANopen

Absolute encoder MAGRES

  • Single and multiturn version
  • Wear-free and dirt tolerant
  • SSI as well as all common fieldbus and Ethernet interfaces

Magnetic angle sensors

  • Absolute position detection up to 360° rotary angle
  • High resolution up to 0.09°
  • Linearized analog output signal
  • Wear-free and dirt tolerant

Baumer Inclination sensors - Inclination sensors in robust industrial design

Manufacturer: Baumer

Inclination sensors measure the tilt angle of machines and objects with respect to the horizontal position. As a type of electronic water level they are an outstanding alternative to the traditional angular measurement, especially if the rotary axis is inaccessible.

Baumer inclination sensors play a significant role in increasing safety, for example, for cranes. Their robust, IP 67 protected die-cast or stainless steel housings, make them especially suited for use in harsh environments.

Single-axis version

  • Measuring range of 360°
  • Resolution up to 0.1°
  • 60 mm design

Biaxial version

  • Measuring range of ±15°, ±30°, ±60°
  • Resolution up to 0.001°
  • 60 mm design
