Weld Select Series of Sensors, connectors and accessories
Weld select is an industry proven group of Balluff sensors, connectors and accessories developed to extend sensor life and increase productivity within the harshest of welding environments.
Designed to assist those responsible for automated welding cells, Balluff have identified typical issues and the corresponding Balluff solutions to minimise damage and maximise part quality and production throughput.
Problem - Weld Slag
Hot weld slag, weld debris and weld spatter stick to the sensor face and body causing premature failure of sensors in weld cells.

Problem - Heat Damage
Sensor damage due to the enormous amount of heat produced within the harsh welding environment.
|Heat Damage - PDF|
Problem - Impact Damage
Incidental sensor damage caused by parts loading impact can significantly degrade sensor performance, shorten sensor life, or even destroy a sensor.

Problem - Connectivity Damage
Weld slag burns through and destroys conventional cabling. Its weight often pulls the cable away from the connector, exposing it to even more damage.
