New generation of position measuring systems

Compact magnetostrictive sensors for non-contact position measurement

Balluff offers a new generation of magnetostrictive sensors in rod and profile designs for applications where maximum precision is required for position measurement in confined spaces.

You want the maximum performance - you need a more simple solution: Performance classes C1 and B1.

The variants in the Balluff portfolio of BTL magnetostrictive position measuring systems offer an individual combination of features depending on the product design. Within the respective sensor families, a distinction is made between two performance classes (B1 / C1). This allows you to easily configure and design the right sensor solution for your application.

Whatever you need

With the BTL position measuring systems of performance class B1, basic functions are available for standard applications with an excellent price/performance ratio. "Whatever you need" -- reliable products with a focus on the essentials.

Whatever you want

With the BTL position measuring systems of performance class C1, you get maximum performance for demanding applications. Whether IO-Link, extended functions such as condition monitoring or various plug connection options: "Whatever you want" with the BTL C1 versions.

Where space is at a premium, the BTL mini rod comes into its own

The extremely space-saving magnetostrictive sensor in the new mini rod design is particularly suitable for use in hydraulic cylinders for position feedback, in forming and rolling plants or for lift and hoist technology. In addition, the BTL mini rod is used in injection molding machines and for monitoring the tilt angle of rotor blades in wind turbines.

With its housing made of corrosion-resistant stainless steel, you get a robust and durable component for your application. The non-contact and thus wear-free measurement guarantees a long service life and reduces downtime.

The BTL mini rod is available in three variants to help you find the right product for your application. See for yourself and configure the ideal position measuring system for your application now:

Reliably measure the position of movable machine parts

The position measuring systems in profile design also impress with their compact design. The space-saving housing design enables easy integration on moving machine parts for continuous position detection. Position measuring systems in profile designs are ideally suited, for example, for use in the control of hydraulic presses in the field of forming technology.

A wide range of variants is also available for magnetostrictive position measuring systems in profile designs, which can also be individually configured. Find the right solution for your application now:

At a glance, your advantages:

  • 2 performance classes (B1 / C1): the perfect solution for your application
  • 3 mechanical designs for your requirements: rod or 2 profile versions
  • Long service life: wear-free due to contactless operating principle
  • Quick and easy installation due to compact design
  • Individually configurable
  • Available with analog or IO-Link interface
  • Simple parameterization via IO-Link
  • Continuous monitoring of conditions such as temperature, humidity and service life in IO-Link versions
  • Simultaneous measurement of multiple positions and velocities
  • Ideal for harsh industrial environments due to hermetically sealed IP67/IP69K aluminum/stainless steel housing
