Balluff sensor technology detects the end positions of hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders. Our sensors reliably detect valve positions and the end positions of linear and rotary movements.
Every second counts when raising and lowering movable bridges, as impact on traffic must be kept to a minimum. Our high-precision BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors, which are integrated in the hydraulic cylinders, ensure that the bridge raises and lowers quickly. Our pressure-rated inductive sensors reliably detect the end positions of the cylinder and position the bridge element with precision.
Floating debris at the infeed end of hydroelectric power plants can cause efficiency loss. In worst-case scenarios they can even cause downtimes. In the flotsam screen, our BHS pressure-rated inductive sensors detect the end positions of the screen and monitor them reliably. An important contribution to the efficiency of your plant.
We developed our BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors specifically for use in the hydraulic cylinders of wind power plants. You can use the pitch adjustment to accurately adapt the rotor blade angles to the wind speed. In doing so, the Balluff position measurement systems maximise the power generation and reliability of your plants.
Optimize the availability of your systems, reduce maintenance costs and increase the quality of your processes. Whether it's position sensing or end-of-travel detection on the pusher machine, our BES high-temperature rated inductive sensors ensure the best results in the hot zone up to 160 °C.
Optimize your processes in pig iron production. And for valve and flap control on the blast furnace, use BES inductive standard sensors or BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors. These help you to regulate the intake and exhaust air. All BTL sensors with a bus interface have temperature measurement integrated into the electronics head for displaying a possible overheating of the measuring system.
Block-style mini-sensors are ideal for end-of-travel sensing in the spindle drive. Their flat form factor fits in any design. They are also simple to install.
