Setting a new standard for precision in magnetic encoders
Balluff's proprietary magnetizing process brings a new level of accuracy to magnetic encoders. The stronger, more sharply defined magnetic poles produced by Balluff’s Permagnet® technology deliver higher practical system accuracy, enabling Balluff encoders to be more tolerant of variation in the working distance between the encoder read head and the tape. Permagnet® technology reduces dispersion and distortion of the magnetic field throughout the specified working range, reducing the influence of gap-distance variation on the accuracy of the position measurement in real-world applications.
Balluff's magnetic encoder technology has advanced to the point that it can challenge general-purpose optical scale encoders. Magnetic encoders can deliver equal or better performance than many optical encoders, with higher robustness and lower total cost.
The BML absolute linear magnetic encoder systems from Balluff ensure absolute positional feedback in every position. They can be used immediately – no reference run needed. Continues working right after a loss of operating voltage or restarting the system.
The BML absolute rotary magnetic encoder systems from Balluff ensure absolute positional feedback in every position. They can be used immediately – without a reference run. Our rotary encoder systems also function highly accurately even on large diameters, are extremely compact, and easy to integrate into motors.
Our BML incremental linear magnetic encoder systems can be used across a wide range of applications and for virtually any measuring length. They ensure precise positioning, for example, in energy production, the beverage industry, and many other sectors. Thanks to standardized digital and analog interfaces, these sensors can be integrated into almost any control system.
Our BML incremental rotary magnetic encoder systems are used for precise positioning and speed control of rotational axes and shafts. Balluff offers the appropriate sensor for nearly every shaft diameter. Thanks to standardized digital and analog interfaces, they can be integrated into most control systems and enable the proper drive, even in torque motors.
