Miniature Sensors from Balluff

Florence, KY – The increasing miniaturization of assemblies demands the smallest possible yet still high-performance components. Balluff’s new line of miniature sensors meet these requirements. With small dimensions and top performance, they offer a great degree of freedom in design and make possible considerably more applications.

Miniature sensors are available from Balluff in all operating principles: as inductive, photoelectric, magnetic, capacitive, and ultrasonic. Available for each sensor technology are compact inductive couplers, space-saving I/O modules and RFID in miniature versions.

The extensive Balluff product line includes mini sensors and compact connection technology which are ideally suited for factory automation – especially for robotics, handling, and production lines. Particularly in robotics, on production lines or in handling applications, low weight is a key requirement for being able to achieve fast cycle times. Another advantage is the reduced space requirement, which increases flexibility in a tightly packed machine compartment. Balluff mini sensors guarantee high precision and reliability.

The shortest inductive M12 sensor in the world – with a length of 12 or 17 mm (can be mounted flush or non-flush) – is included in Balluff’s Mini product line. It’s so small that it can be integrated in, among other places, extremely compact linear slides, valves, and actuators.
