Weld Immune Factor 1 Sensors

SteelFace with weld resistant coating

For error-proofing and part-present applications in heavy manufacturing, inductive sensors are often - by necessity - placed directly in harm’s way. Impact, abrasion, and particulate erosion can destroy conventional plastic-faced sensors and their thin metal bodies.

Balluff SteelFace™ sensors are designed and built tough to survive longer in your most abusive applications. For applications that require something more compact than a tubular sensor, Balluff is pleased to offer the all new flatpack SteelFace sensors. The one piece stainless steel housing offers a robust operating face for the most demanding applications. Add our all new patent pending coating and you have the ideal sensor for extreme applications.
