Ultrasonic Sensors offer detection range of 20 mm to 8 m.Balluff, Inc. Florence, KY 41042-0937
Jun 12, 2013 Operating independently of color and surface finish, Ultrasonic Sensors are suitable for distance measurement or position detection of granules, fluids, and powders. Units are available as switching or analog versions, and all analog models are available with voltage or current output from 0–10 V or 4–20 mA. Because distance to object is determined via sound transit time, ultrasonic sensors have optimized background suppression, and are unaffected by dust, dirt, and steam.
IR Vision Sensor is immune to effects of ambient light.Balluff, Inc. Florence, KY 41042-0937
May 28, 2013 With built-in IR lighting and integrated daylight filter, BVS eliminates problems associated with changing ambient lighting conditions during inspection as well as barcode and text reading processes and eliminates employee and technician discomfort. Sensor's light, certified for CE (EN 62471:2008), is invisible to human eye and thus removes intrusive flickering. With fixed integrated lighting, optics, and filter, design facilitates installation.
LED Stack Light offers flexible digital configuration.Balluff, Inc. Florence, KY 41042-0937
Apr 17, 2013 Connected to industrial network via IO-Link, Smart Light can be used with IP67 distributed modular I/O products from IO-Link vendors. Light is controlled using bitmaps for outputs and can function in any of 3 operating modes. In Stack Light Mode, 1-5 positions of 360° LEDs can be programmed with variety of colors. Level Mode indicates high or low level tied to numerical value, while Run Mode indicates running status. Using M12 connector, IP54-rated Smart Light can be mounted directly on machine.
Inclination Sensors target renewable energy applications.Balluff, Inc. Florence, KY 41042-0937
Mar 01, 2013 Designed to measure deviation on horizontal axis up to 360°, Inclination Sensors provide 0.1°C accuracy, resolution of 0.01°, and temperature drift of just 0.01%/10 K, making them suitable for precise position control and continuous positioning of rotational movements in critical applications. Units are based on capacitive measuring principle and are equipped with liquid-based measuring cell. Housed in metal enclosure with IP67 rating, sensors feature expanded temperature range of -40 to +85°C.
Inclination Sensors detect deviation from horizontal axis.Balluff, Inc. Florence, KY 41042-0937
Jan 15, 2013 With 0.1° accuracy and 0.01° resolution, liquid-based BSI Inclination Sensors detect deviations from horizontal axis over full 360°, contact-free and absolutely. Capacitive sensors are suitable when inclination angles need to be precisely detected or rotary movements must be constantly tracked. Featuring IP67-rated metal housing and temperature range of -40 to +85°C, sensors are suited for wind power stations, solar-thermal power plants, oil/gas production plants, and medical technology.
Valve Control handles up to 24 output positions per manifold.Balluff, Inc. Florence, KY 41042-0937
Nov 29, 2012 Using industrial network and Balluff Distributed Modular I/O valve manifold connector, installation and repair time can be reduced by changing 25 conductor terminations into M12 4-wire connection. Valve manifold connectors work with multiple valve brands, and valve control solutions are compatible with EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, DeviceNet, Profibus, and CC-Link networks. By utilizing vendor-neutral communication standard IO-Link, any combination of networks and valve brands can be specified.
Distributed Modular I/O for CC-Link offers IP67 connections.Balluff, Inc. Florence, KY 41042-0937
Nov 16, 2012 Distributed Modular I/O, capable of replacing standard slice I/O and distributed I/O solutions, enables collection of diverse control data types. Utilizing vendor-neutral standard IO-Link, master block can communicate with up to 4 slave devices and send combined data back to controller over CC-Link network. In lieu of backplane, each slave device is connected to CC-Link IO-Link master by M12 port. CC-Link IO-Link masters support daisy-chain connections and trunk drop network architectures.
Magnetic Field Sensors target space-critical applications.Balluff, Inc. Florence, KY 41042-0937
Oct 29, 2012 Measuring 3.8 x 24 mm, BMF 243 Series offers bounce-free switching response and is suited for small grippers and cylinders with C slots. Binary-switching, magnetic-field sensitive, electronic cylinder switches include integrated bracket that fits completely into cylinder slot without protruding. Series is also supplied with cable clip that guarantees optimum strain relief and secure cable routing. Switch point can be adjusted in seconds using screwdriver.
Color Sensor delivers reliable detection on uneven surfaces.Balluff, Inc. Florence, KY 41042-0937
Oct 12, 2012 Featuring fiber optic cable based optics that allow for placement of detection optics in tight spaces, BFS 33M comes in aluminum housing, uses lab color space to distinguish between different color shades, and has range of up to 400 mm. This true color sensor provides 7 channels and 3 digital outputs for set-point detection and can use serial interface to configure unit as well as output color data to perform color evaluations. Switching frequency of 1.5 kHz aids fast process monitoring.
Flexible RFID System is engineered to serve diverse applications.Balluff, Inc. Florence, KY 41042-0937
Sep 17, 2012 To deliver performance needed to solve industrial track and trace applications, BIS V combines 4 asynchronous 125 KHz and 13.56 MHz read/write antenna channels with local analog, valve manifold, or I/O access/control. Integrated IO-Link master port is provided for connecting discrete or analog I/O or valve manifolds, while LCD with control buttons aids setup and display of network address and data carrier/tag UID. IP65 metal housing offers mounting options for hard-point or DIN rail.
