Safely and reliably detect objects in explosion protected areas

Balluff’s new inductive portfolio for explosion protected areas is approved for ATEX zones where an explosive atmosphere due to gas or dust is frequent or permanent. This offers reliable detection and positioning in explosion protected areas.

The sensor families are available in M12, M18 and M30 form factors, so that you can solve a variety of application challenges. Their inductive switching principle gives you non-contact and wear-free switching. Thanks to uniform standard connections and cable versions, our Ex sensor are easy to install.


  • Common form factors M12, M18 and M30
  • For ATEX zones 0, 1, and 2, and zones 20, 21, and 22
  • Intrinsically safe sensors from a single source
  • Fast installation and replacement using standardized connections
