Endress+Hauser subsidiaries SpectraSensors, Inc. and Kaiser Optical Systems, Inc. have joined forces to form Endress+Hauser Optical Analysis, Inc. For the parent Endress+Hauser Group, this merger consolidates its expertise in laser-based measurement technology, strengthens its focus on laboratory and process analysis and positions it to provide customers with even better support for analysis tasks in the future. SpectraSensors and Kaiser Optical Systems boast a long history of innovation and offer market-leading product lines for optical analysis.

These two US-based companies were acquired by Endress+Hauser in 2012 and 2013 respectively. Adding SpectraSensors strengthened the Endress+Hauser Group’s position in gas analysis with tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS) technology. Kaiser Optical Systems, a global leader in Raman spectroscopy, brought on board great expertise in solid, liquid and gas analysis across a wide range of applications, including vaccine production. Through these subsidiaries, the merger of which took effect on Jan. 1, 2022, Endress+Hauser is able to support customers from product and process development to production with advanced analysis and quality measurements to process engineering applications.

The analysis technology segment of its business now accounts for almost one-quarter of the Group’s sales.

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
