Rugged, absolute linear position measurement from 1 to 300 inches
Balluff Micropulse® linear position sensors have achieved a worldwide reputation for accuracy, stability, and rock-solid reliability. This doesn't happen by chance. Micropulse sensors are designed from the ground up to exceed expectations in demanding industrial environments. Balluff understands that quality, performance, and reliability are only part of the story. Diverse applications require diverse products with features that enhance usability and improve process efficiency.
Balluff linear position transducers in the Profile-style housing are a rugged, wear-free alternative to other linear feedback devices such as wear-prone potentiometers, expensive and fragile glass scales, and limited stroke LVDT’s. Environmentally sealed to IP67, and utilizing either a sliding captive magnet or a free-floating magnet, the Profile housing sensors provide highly accurate linear position feedback in demanding, harsh industrial applications.
Advanced design, superior performance, and ultimate versatility make Balluff linear position sensors the ideal choice for high-performance hydraulic cylinder position feedback.They are exceptionally well-suited for use in hydraulic cylinders used in industries such as steel processing, lumber, and tire manufacturing.
Balluff rod style linear position sensors installed into hydraulic cylinders withstand high pressure operation up to 8700 psi (600 bar), and are available in measuring lengths from 2" to 300" (50 mm to 7620 mm). Numerous electrical interface options are available to adapt to any control system.
Compact, rugged, and built to survive, Balluff linear position sensors are available with all-stainless steel housing construction.
Balluff's rugged linear position sensors are available in protection classes up to IP69K and for high pressure cylinder applications up to 1000 bar. Their non-contact working principle prevents wear and ensures almost unlimited service life. Therefore, Balluff offers you a high degree of reliability and precision, even under the most extreme ambient conditions.
Balluff multiple redundant linear position sensors meet the highest requirements for security and uptime, even in harsh environments. 2X and 3X redundant electronics, completely integrated into a single housing, provide assurance of operation in critical applications such as safety-related valves and hydrauilc cylinders.
Balluff offers magnetostrictive linear position sensors in various rod designs that are ideal for hydraulic cylinder position feedback in locations with explosive gases and/or dust. With worldwide (North America, IECEx, ATEX) approvals to Class I, Div 1/Zone 0/1, Balluff rod-style transducers meet the most stringent requirements in industries such as oil and gas, and turbine control.
The Balluff BTL-SF fill level sensor highly precise, continuous fill level feedback in applications in which exceptional hygiene is required. The BTL-SF is made of corrosion-free stainless steel. With a high surface quality and rounded edges, it meets the maximum international hygiene standards and enables you to easily implement, for example, the strict requirements of the food industry.
