Sensors and systems for drive and fluid technology

Achieve the best solution with the right sensor principle

If fluid and drive technology is to remain competitive in future too, the machines used here must guarantee a higher level of automation and minimal downtimes. To this end, the following requirements must be met, for example:

  • Product change via keyboard
  • Optimum energy efficiency
  • Higher cycle times
  • Greater availability
  • Short changeover times

Balluff linear position measuring technology is well equipped to meet these challenges. And Balluff linear position measuring technology offers a wide range for many different uses – such as in mechanical engineering or for the generation of renewable and conventional energies. With the right sensor principle, you can achieve your ideal solution.
