Balluff offers a broad portfolio of electronic pressure transmitters and pressure sensors for the continuous measurement of the state of variable pressures, as well as limiting pressure detection of liquids, gaseous and paste-like medias. The intelligent and versatile configuration possibilities allow for optimum adaptation to individual requirements, such as a large selection of process connections.
With the Balluff IO-Link pressure gauge, the pressure is monitored during production right where the action takes place. IO-Link technology eliminates need for expensive shield cable runs and transfers information to the controller in digital format-- in desired units such as psi or bar. IO-Link also eliminates need for special software or interfaces to parametrize the sensor when it is first installed or when replaced. Through automatic parameterization feature, the controller directly download the correct set of parameters when it detects the changes in the sensor.
Balluff pressure sensors meet the exacting demands of the steel industry for stable process control. With their extremely low pressure drift, they enable steady pressure measurement during changing environmental conditions around blast and arc furnaces, rolling stands, hydraulic systems.
Acidic liquid media leading to corrosion can play havoc with control instrumentation like pressure sensors. For example two common pickle liquors are hydrochloric acid (HCl) and sulfuric acid (H2SO4), both of which can attack metallic sensor components and cause premature failure. In response, Balluff developed acid-resistant pressure sensors to overcome reliability problems in corrosive applications.
Perfect closure of the clamping plates requires the correct pressure. Balluff pressure sensors with stainless steel housings enable reliable pressure monitoring of the hydraulic circuit. Equipped with IO-Link, the pressure sensors relay their values directly to the controller to allow for precise closed-loop control.
Balluff pressure transmitters monitor the pressure in the curing press accurately and reliably. Eleven different pressure ranges, voltage or current outputs as well as various process connections are available.
