Intelligent Position Measuring System for Absolute Linear Feedback

With their BMP series Balluff has added a new intelligent displacement sensor which provides not only the absolute position signal for the stroke travel of a piston via IO-Link but also information about the sensor status and the current ambient conditions. It monitors for example the sensor temperature, the number of starts and issues warnings when a configurable limit value is violated. An...
