Level Switches Are Industry 4.0 Worthy

Baumer’s LBFH and LBFI level switches integrate an IO-Link and carry ATEX approval. The IO-Link interface allows users to automate the configuration of their sensors, making the level switches Industry 4.0-ready. The inclusion of ATEX also enables the use of commercially available barriers. Additionally, the sensors are suitable for hygienic and industrial applications.


The IO-Link communication interface enables each application to be configured quickly using standard network components. This

ensures error-free duplication of the system and device replacement without the need for additional programming. Diagnostic data can be called up and evaluated at any time, which increases system availability. And like their predecessors, LBFH and LBFI level switches meet the criteria for ATEX categories 1 and 2 for gas and dust. The reduced current consumption of their more advanced electronics means that commercially-available standard barriers can now be used in addition to the Baumer barriers. More LBFH and LBFI details and specs are available for your convenience.
