For all types of generation of energy

In power plants, hydraulic systems are used for regulating and controlling numerous processes. The powerful heart of these systems is the hydraulic unit, which generates the required pressure. Equally stringent are the requirements for the sensors: they must be extremely accurate, capable of being integrated, and highly reliable.

Sensors from Balluff meet all of these demands with ease and feature an excellent price/performance ratio.

Application examples

 

 

  • Fast configuration of parameters

    With easy handling and in a space-saving manner

    The solution

    With their large display and a simple operating concept in accordance with VDMA, Balluff BSP pressure sensors are simple and quick to configure. Since the display and electrical output can be turned into a position independent of the flange, Balluff pressure sensors can be installed flexibly and in a space-saving manner.

    The features

    • Compact housing design
    • Local pressure display
    • Binary switching outputs
    • Analog output signals – also with IO-Link
    • Optionally up to –40 °C
    Fast configuration of parameters

  • Reliable level measurement

    Fluid level checking continiously and detecting leckage

    The solution

    A sufficient hydraulic fluid level is prerequisite for interference-free operation of a hydraulic system. Therefore continuous level monitoring plays an important role. The BCS capacitive sensors from Balluff reliably detect the maximum filling level in hydraulic tanks. They reliably report leaks when installed in the oil pan as a leak sensor.

    The features

    • Reliably record minimum and maximum levels
    • Usage in a broad temperature range
    Fluid level checking continiously and detecting leckage
