Compact Inductive Linear Position Sensor
"This inductive linear position sensor is very small and ideal for use in any short stroke, space critical application," says Scott Rosenberger, Marketing Manager for Measurement Sensors. The BIP04 expands Balluff's extensive line of miniature sensors which includes inductive, photoelectric and capacitive sensors with discrete and measurement outputs. Rosenberger continues, "Where other position sensors may not fit, this sensor can provide gauging or positioning of grippers or clamps, enhancing flexible manufacturing applications." For manufacturers this sensor provides an upgrade from discrete sensing to continuous monitoring of position.
The BIP04 compact inductive linear position sensor is available in analog 0-10V, analog 4-20 mA, and IO-Link interface versions. In addition, the BIP04 offers the following features:
