Sensors

Broad array of sensing principles matched to a variety of applications

In the realm of sensing applications, no single technology can perform equally well in all situations. A diverse array of sensor operating principles, modes, and form factors is needed to deliver dependable performance across a broad spectrum of application requirements.

Balluff offers premium sensors for a wide range of application requirements, from presence detection and position measurement to level detection and pressure, for general industrial use or for tough applications in critical environments. To complete the solution, Balluff puts it all together with leading-edge networking and connection technology and a comprehensive sensor accessory program including mounting hardware and power supplies.

Balluff's quality management system is certified under DIN EN ISO 9001:2015; all Balluff products are tested in our own accredited labs. Balluff products meet many regional as well as international standards and are installed throughout the world.
