8x8 inductive sensors

Small, robust and easy to integrate

Balluff 8x8 inductive sensorsThe new 8x8 inductive shorties enable the reliable functional monitoring of your production processes. Thanks to their robust metal housing, installation length of just 20 mm (for the cable variant), and cross section of 8x8 mm, these inductive sensors are ideal for use in the following applications:

  • Position monitoring of miniaturised linear units
  • Detection of small parts in robotics and automation
  • Pick-and-place modules
  • Automatic placement machines

Your benefits

  • Installation height of just 8 mm in the direction of detection for easy component integration
  • Increased switching distance of 2 mm for higher performance reserves
  • Robust metal housing for harsh environments
  • Choice of cable or M8/M5 plugs for easy connection¬†to the controller

Example application
