Photoelectric Sensors with Condition Monitoring

Smart Automation and Monitoring System

Photoelectric Sensors with Condition Monitoring

SAMS (Smart Automation and Monitoring System) stands for Balluff's comprehensive automation philosophy. On the one hand, the Smart Automation and Monitoring System comprises a large number of additional functions and additional information for each individual component while, on the other hand, it is characterized by its uniform and standardized operating, configuration and diagnosis concept.

Part of this system is our new BOS R254K photoelectric sensor for reliable detection of objects like bottles, containers and pallets in the food industry and in the packaging sector. Designed for demanding applications, it is ideal wherever cleaning involves aggressive media and high pressure. Resistant to cleaning agents (Ecolab), it has passed the cleaning cycle according to the high Balluff standard. IP67 and IP69K ratings enable use in critical applications with harsh ambient conditions, especially in factory automation.

Another plus: its numerous additional functions provide for comprehensive condition monitoring. The sensor is self-monitoring while also providing helpful diagnostic data. You also gain valuable information related to the installed location including the application itself. All in all, the sensor ensures greater equipment uptime.


  • IO-Link V1.1 (Smart Sensor Profile 2)
  • Additional functions: various operating modes also for demanding object detection (averaging, time and counting functions, dynamic switching threshold variation, preset switching thresholds, emitter LED monitoring, recording of extreme values)
  • Designed for harsh ambient conditions
  • Sensor monitors itself and its environment: temperature, humidity, vibration, inclination, contamination, function reserve
