Pressure sensors

Pneumatic, hydraulic and vacuum system monitoring

Balluff's pressure sensors measure a variety of pressures, such as hydraulic or pneumatic systems for machine movement, as well as liquids, viscous media and gases for other processes. These sensors are available with integral displays that also provide a programming means and diagnostics window into the sensor or as an instrument only device with no display. Pressure sensors connected to networks such as IO-Link can provide improved process flexibility and control through enhanced sensor monitoring, parameterization, and error reporting back through the system controller.

Balluff's pressure sensors incorporate output switching functionality as well as visual display of the current pressure. Since these devices are electronic, there is a multitude of output characteristics available including discrete on/off outputs and continuous analog output proportional to the pressure value.

    Pressure sensors with display monitor vacuum suction pressure and thus ensure reliable engagement.

  • Front flush pressure sensors

    For demanding media

    Our BSP front flush pressure sensors are most appropriate for pressure measurements in viscous, paste-like, crystallizing, or solids-containing media. Use with adhesives, greases, sealants, or frequently changing media. Thanks to their front-flush welded stainless steel membrane, they do not have dead space and are especially easy to clean.

    • Free of dead space and easy to clean
    • Convenient with a very easy-to-read display and selectable outputs (analog, digital, IO-Link)
    • Compact and robust as a transmitter with 4…20 mA output signal
    • Pressure range –1…600 bar
    • Process connection in high-end stainless steel G1/2" or Tri-Clamp 1 ½"
    • IP67 or IP69k
    • Expanded temperature range (media temperature of -40…+125 °C)
    • UL approved, material test certification 3.1 (EN10204)
    • Customer-specific modifications upon request
