The smart controller retrofit for your foam cutting machine

Do you work with the IS-M, ABLG-1, BSV-E and BST/BSL machine types in your foam processing? Between 1984 and 2000, the "Lenord and Bauer GEL 4440" impulse counter was installed in these machines – but it’s no longer available. What does this mean in the event of a fault? For a long time, the only option was an uneconomical replacement with a repaired used part.

With our B-Pulse Controller as a retrofit, we now offer you a new, efficient solution: simply replace your old device with the latest controller generation B-Pulse 200 or B-Pulse 300 to ensure smooth processes and the future viability of your production!

100 % compatible

Thanks to matching connectors, your old impulse counter can be replaced 1:1 with the B-Pulse Controller.

User-friendly interface

The new graphic display enables intuitive and even more user-friendly operation.

Less machine downtime

With our B-Pulse Controller as a retrofit, you can increase the availability and productivity of your old machine.

Guaranteed availability of spare parts

Leave nothing to chance: with our reliable spare parts supply, you are well prepared for future challenges.

Quick and easy replacement

Our B-Pulse Controller is available immediately and from stock for express delivery. The replacement process is straightforward and you can usually carry it out yourself.

Significant cost savings

Save the expenses of repairing an old controller and invest directly in the future with a retrofit!

Everything under control! Boost your performance with the B-Pulse upgrade

Our B-Pulse Controllers consist of brand new Siemens parts and are available in two versions:

B-Pulse 200: The perfect replacement for your cutting thickness controller (L&B Controller)

B-Pulse 300: As a retrofit for the cutting thickness controller, press roller controller, cutting angle controller, cropped cut controller, cutting speed display and path measurement controller

We will find out which solution is best for your foam cutting machine in an individual consultation. In both cases, replacement is very straightforward and usually possible without the intervention of our Bäumer technicians: You can simply attach the B-Pulse 200 to the control panel yourself from the outside. There is no need to modify your machine control system. The conversion to B-Pulse 300 can be carried out by experienced local electricians. However, if necessary, our professionals will be happy to help you out!
