New Generation of Factor 1 Inductive Sensors
With the addition of these new Factor 1 sensors, Balluff expands its broad product line of problem solving sensor solutions designed for harsh welding applications. This is extremely valuable to tier suppliers as the trend toward automotive light-weighting has increased the use of new metal varieties, aluminum structures and multi-metal assemblies.
"The new M18 Factor 1 sensors provide more flexibility in welding applications where longer sensing ranges are needed or when a customer is working with non-ferrous materials" says Shawn Day, Product Marketing Manager for Object Detection, "and a common application includes mig welding where ferrous or non-ferrous material is used." The new M18 Factor 1 sensors are available with weld spatter resistant coatings and weld-field immune circuitry for maximum protection in hostile welding environments.
