Our intelligent sensor solutions detect objects reliably. From metals to nonmetals to bulk materials and liquids: Balluff has the right solution for every object and material. Our contact-free technology also operates wear-free and with absolute reliability under rough ambient conditions.
Sensors for detecting color and contrast support the positioning of electrodes in the arc furnace. The sensor, which is protected in the gripper checks whether it has been gripped correctly using color markings on the electrode.
As precise all-rounders, Balluff BUS ultrasonic sensors detect plates on rolls and coils and regulate the correct material feed at the dancer roll according to the plate sag. In doing so, they ensure the correct roller drive and that the plate tension is always perfect.
The Balluff BFS color sensor offers unbeatable high quality in the inspection of plate coatings. Here, it reliably detects even the finest color nuances or whether a plate leaves production polished or unpolished. Even in the case of temperature fluctuations, it reliably identifies the plates.
Balluff BCS capacitive sensors and BOH MICROmote sensors reliably monitor stack heights, with various surfaces and also with transparent objects.
Our BOH optoelectronic sensors offer one variant for the implementation of a reference light barrier for wafer centering. They are available in a screw-in version made of rugged stainless steel housing with a sealing function and operate via micro-optics with a small light spot. You can comfortably make fine adjustments via an external amplifier.
Our BOH diffuse sensors or through-beam sensors with integrated micro-optics, which we would gladly tailor to your individual needs, are available to you as an alternative.
Our BES inductive sensors offer efficient solutions for numerous applications. For position detection in linear drives, the BES inductive sensor does not return an absolute position, but detects the change of position by counting pulses. This makes the Balluff sensor solution more cost-effective than, for example, a rotary encoder.
