Proven precision for the highest demands
Efficient and environmentally friendly combustion processes in conventional power plants require turbines and generators that can be controlled with high accuracy. The requirements for accuracy are extremely high here, and Balluff sensors have been developed for the tough demands of applications.
Quick-action shutoff control valves are subject to the highest safety requirements which can only be met by a redundant system. We have therefore compactly integrated up to three independent measurement sections and three independent electronics systems in one rod in our BTL 7 magnetostrictive linear position sensor.
The robust, contact-free and absolute position measurement system is freely configurable. Another major advantage: Thanks to its compact dimensions, the system can easily replace already installed, non-redundant position measurement systems. Startpoints and endpoints can be set comfortably with a computer. Parameter sets are easy to apply. For you, this means that startup is fast and uncomplicated.
Flaps are used in all areas of power plants to control gases and fumes. Robust hydraulic cylinders with the BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensor reliably open and close the flaps and support safe operation of the power plant.
Harsh conditions are typical for conveyor belt systems in power plants. Optical sensors in the rugged housing are ideally protected to ensure reliable monitoring of the conveyor belts. As an option they can be fitted with an air nozzle to keep the optics from becoming contaminated.
When it comes to power switches, it is important to get exact data on the time characteristics of the switching movement: for startup, maintenance work or in-process. Magnetically coded measurement systems handle this reliably. This allows you to detect damage early or even prevent it.
