Smart sensor family BOS R254K

now also with Time Of Flight (TOF) versions

Smart optoelectronic sensors

The SAMS (Smart Automation and Monitoring System) designation stands for Balluff's comprehensive automation philosophy. On the one hand, the Smart Automation and Monitoring System includes a wide range of additional functions and additional information of each individual component and, on the other hand, is characterized by its uniform and standardized operating, configuration and diagnostic concept.

Part of this system is our new BOS R254K optoelectronic sensor, which you can use to reliably detect bottles, containers and pallets in the food industry and packaging sector, for example. Designed for demanding applications, it is ideal wherever cleaning is regularly carried out with aggressive agents and high pressure. Resistant to cleaning agents (Ecolab), it meets the high cleaning cycle standard set by Balluff. The IP67 and IP69K protection classes allow it to be used in critical applications with harsh ambient conditions, especially in the factory automation sector.

Another plus point: Its numerous additional functions enable condition monitoring. For example, the sensor provides helpful diagnostic data through its self-monitoring function. In addition, you gain valuable information about the place of use, including the application itself. The bottom line is that the sensor can be used to increase plant availability.

The sensor family includes diffuse sensors with background suppression, retro-reflective sensors and through-beam sensors.

A particular highlight is the laser photoelectric proximity switch with a range of 1000 mm, which operates with time-of-flight technology. This technology enables both virtually object-independent object detection and reliable small part detection. The laser retro-reflective sensor with autocollimation is characterized by high switching accuracy and optimized small part detection even over long distances.


  • IO-Link V1.1 (Smart Sensor Profile 2)
  • Additional functions: various operating modes for demanding object detection (averaging, time and counting functions, dynamic switching threshold adjustment, preset switching thresholds, transmission LED monitoring, recording of extreme values)
  • Resistant to harsh environmental conditions
  • Sensor monitors itself and its environment: temperature, humidity, vibration, tilt, contamination, functional reserve
