Balluff Introduces Series of Extended Range Steelface(TM) Sensors

Florence, KY (July 2006): The number one reason sensors fail is repeated or excessive physical contact with heavy or fast moving metal objects. Balluff is expanding its offering of Steelface(TM) sensors to include a series of sensors that combine a rugged single-piece stainless steel housing with 2 to 3 times the sensing range of standard inductive proximity sensors. This combination of rugged...
