Balluff Introduces New Mini Photoelectric Sensor Family, Perfect for Conveyor Applications



Florence, KY (August 2007): Balluff's new photoelectric family packs maximum performance in a small package. Designed for small parts conveying equipment, the BOS 11K helps designers reduce a machine's overall footprint on the factory floor. The family includes diffuse, retro-reflective, polarized retro-reflective, and thru-beam styles all within the same compact 34.5 x 29.3 x 15 mm T-style housing.

Designed to be used with Balluff's versatile BMS mounting system, the BOS 11K can be positioned almost anywhere at any angle.
