Balluff sensor technology detects the end positions of hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders. Our sensors reliably detect valve positions and the end positions of linear and rotary movements.
Inductive mini sensors are ideally suited for end position detection in spindle drives. Their flat, rectangular form factor fits in any design.
Our BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors are excellent for the control of valves and flaps at the blast furnace. They help to reliably regulate supply and return air in pig iron production. Alternatively, you can use inductive BES standard sensors. A temperature sensor is integrated in the electronics head for all BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors with a bus interface. This guarantees the correct temperature measurement.
Our BES high-temperature-rated inductive sensors are excellent for use in the rough conditions of the steel industry. And at temperatures of up to 160 °C at that. They always deliver the best results for position sensing and detection at the pusher machine. This allows you to optimize the availability of your systems, reduce maintenance costs and increase the quality of your processes.
Every second counts when raising and lowering movable bridges, as impact on traffic must be kept to a minimum. Our high-precision BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors, which are integrated in the hydraulic cylinders, ensure that the bridge raises and lowers quickly. Our pressure-rated inductive sensors reliably detect the end positions of the cylinder and position the bridge element with precision.
Balluff inductive mini sensors are perfectly suited for the optimum alignment of core pulls: These ensure that the core pull is at the required end position. High-pressure resistant versions of the sensors scan the end positions directly in the hydraulic cylinder. If necessary, alternatives that are resistant to high temperatures can also be used.
Balluff magnetic cylinder sensors reliably detect the end position of the piston of the pneumatic cylinders and guarantee that the tyre building machine moves safely. The sensors, which are resistant to temperatures up to 105 °C, replace wear-prone magnetic reed switches and have a long service life.
Floating debris at the infeed end of hydroelectric power plants can cause efficiency loss. In worst-case scenarios they can even cause downtimes. In the flotsam screen, our BHS pressure-rated inductive sensors detect the end positions of the screen and monitor them reliably. An important contribution to the efficiency of your plant.
We developed our BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors specifically for use in the hydraulic cylinders of wind power plants. You can use the pitch adjustment to accurately adapt the rotor blade angles to the wind speed. In doing so, the Balluff position measurement systems maximise the power generation and reliability of your plants.
