Simple position detection and need-oriented speed measurement

Balluff binary sensors using a wide variety of technologies reliably guarantee simple position detection. They are powerful and universally applicable. In applications where each gram of weight savings means an improvement in energy efficiency, mini-series deliver convincing performance – especially with little space.

Speeds are measured all over in the area of machinery and plant engineering. Differing applications place differing demands on the sensors that measure speed. Balluff always offers you the right sensors for your needs: BML magnetic encoders are ideal if you work with high speeds or need to determine speeds with particular accuracy. Inductive standard sensors are suited for efficient solutions for simple inquiries.

Application examples

Measure speed and detect direction of rotation
High speeds directly on the motor shaft
Measure slow and fast speeds
Detect individual positions
Spindle feed positioning
