Linear Position Sensors Designed for Extreme Conditions of Steel Plants
Latest additions to Balluff portfolio offer stainless steel housing, IP69K
The newest additions to Balluff’s expansive portfolio of linear position sensors were designed for extreme conditions. The rod style sensors feature a full stainless steel housing to provide superior resistance to corrosive agents. An IP69K rating for both the rod in the pressure areas and the electronics housing outside the cylinder, along with a pressure rating of up to 1000 bar, make them especially suitable for harsh work areas like steel plants.
The new models are available in three different mounting types:
Threaded flange M18 x 1.5
Threaded flange ¾” – 16UNF
Threaded flange M22 x 1.5
They deliver non-contact, wear-free measuring in ranges from 25 mm to 7.6 meters with a resolution down to 1 μm.
They provide fast integration and can be used in either SSI mode, with up to 2 magnets, or Start/Stop mode, with up to 16 magnets. Their digital interfaces are less noise susceptible than analog while offering greater resolution. Parametrization is made possible through the software tool.
And because they are maintenance-free, they increase machine up-time.
