Balluff Self-Adhesive Capacitive Strip Sensor
"Flexibility is defined with the ability to cut the sensor strip to any desired length," shares Jack Moermond, Balluff Inc Capacitive Product Marketing Manager, "with a sensing range from 108mm to 850mm. In addition, the material of the strip allows the sensor to conform to container walls." The integrated adhesive surface can be easily attached to a container's surface without the use of any additional hardware. Powered by a separately available amplifier, the sensor can provide a continuous voltage analog output or a continuous current analog output or a digital value via IO-Link.
The flexibility of the sensor head, simple installation, and easy controls integration translates to cost savings for machine builders and manufacturers in a wide variety of industries from packaging to factory automation.
