Houston – The Polytron 6100 EC WL is a flexible and cost-efficient solution for plant expansions, upgrades or new installations. The wireless gas detection transmitter demonstrates its advantages even in challenging measuring tasks in loading or inspection areas. Wireless detection reduces the planning effort required while retaining the same safety levels provided by a wired transmitter. The Polytron 6100 EC WL is SIL2 capable. It uses field-proven DrägerSensors optimized for industrial applications. They cover a spectrum of 140 different hazardous gases in a temperature range of -40 F to 149 F.

Convenient during installation and in operation

The industrial wireless standard ISA100.11a ensures safe transmission of the measured values. Together with the PROFIsafe protocol, it ensures the SIL2 capability of the system. With the PolySoft software solution, users can conveniently access the Polytron 6100 EC WL via a Bluetooth interface – on an explosion-protected tablet, laptop or desktop PC in the workshop. The transmitter data and the event log can be easily transferred as a data set and evaluated when necessary.

The integrated LEDs, which are visible from a great distance, indicate the status of the life signal, warnings, alarms and Bluetooth interface. The intrinsically safe design of the wireless gas detection transmitter enables safe maintenance, such as changing the batteries or sensors, in the hazardous area. The Polytron 6100 EC WL can also cover application scenarios in long-term operations without batteries. The wireless transmitter is supplied with 24 volts for this purpose – directly in a general purpose area and via a suitable supply isolator in the hazardous area.

Baking Industry Leaders Collaborate to Automate Single-Serve Desserts

Looking for a new way to prepare single-serve desserts at your bakery?

Apex Motion Control and Unifiller have collaborated to create the perfect autonomous workstation for the production of single-serve desserts like muffins. By combining Unifiller’s MultiStation Depositor with Apex’s Baker-Bot, these two machines are able to load pans onto a conveyor, deposit batter, then move pans back onto a rack without any stress.

To make this possible, Apex’s Baker-Bot first grabs a pan from a sheet pan rack or a stack of trays, then this cobot loads it onto the MultiStation Depositor’s conveyor belt. Unifiller’s MultiStation system then uses auto-conveyor height detection to raise the conveyor belt as needed, so the batter can be accurately deposited into the tray. Once the pan is filled with batter, the Baker-Bot then grabs that tray, and depending on your setup, it either places it back into the sheet pan rack where it came from, or it places the pan onto a separate rack. This unique collaboration allows bakers to automate this tedious part of the single-serve dessert production process, which gives employees the necessary free time to focus on other valuable tasks.
