Extending the life of product performance in harsh industrial conditions
Balluff protection hardware accommodates a wide variety of applications, impact, cleaning or debris. These accessories are geared towards extending the life of automation products performance in harsh industrial conditions involving chemical attack, debris accumulation, shock/vibration/impact, and high temperatures.
When working in different kinds of environments, it is important to take a muli-angle approach to designing the application. In existing installations, it is essential to consider all the reasons for failures before determining a solution.
When determining how much protection is needed, you still have to consider these typical questions: what is being exposed and why is the current installation failing.
Balluff offers one of the widest varieties of accessories specifically designed for harsh environments.
Our plunger probe solutions have a fixed stop and a sturdy design for harsh environments. They are ideally suited for welding devices, punch applications, and applications with monitored tool ejection. The complete set consists of sensor, housing, and springs. Moreover, you can choose between different ram types, such as round, flat, chiseled and M6 threads, as well as three spring tensions (low, medium, high). In each case, the two-part housing simplifies the maintenance.
Our protective covers, which are compact as well as sturdy, provide reliable protection against misadjustment and sabotage. Specifically designed for Balluff products and solutions, they simplify installation and mounting for you on M8/M12 plug connectors, fieldbus blocks and vision sensors. Sabotage protection is available in high-quality plastic or aluminum.
When usingBalluff sensors and devices in a very harsh environment, try our protective housings, which are resistant to high temperatures, chemicals, and mechanical influences. These housings are even usable in welding areas. They are made of high-quality materials, offer durable surfaces, and a protective glass with qualified optical properties. Assembly is simple and replacement parts are supplied quickly.
Our easily installable protective caps and port covers ensure reliable protection in harsh environments. They are available for a wide variety of Balluff products, such as M8 to M30 sensors. They are available in metal and plastic versions – with PTFE coating available – and are distinguished by high resistance to temperature and chemicals. Several options are suitable for applications in the welding field and in the food industry.
Our silicone cable guards are flexible and robust. It is distinguished by chemical resistance and handles temperatures of up to 250 °C, making it an ideal choice in welding areas. Choose from various options, such as protective tubing, protective casing, and protective tape in diameters of 7 mm to 50 mm.
