Balluff has one of the broadest product offerings of any sensor company. Balluff products include a complete line of sensors, transducers, ID systems, and connectivity products. Their sensor lines include photoelectric, inductive, capacitive and magnetic, as well as other more specialized sensor products to fit virtually any sensing application.
Sensors for presence sensing of objects and for synchronization of automated machinery and processes, it's important to match the sensing principle to the job at hand. Balluff offers a wide variety of discrete (on/off) sensor technologies to deliver optimal performance for your application.
Inductive Proximity Sensors - Metallic targets at shorter ranges
Photoelectric Sensors - Multiple target materials at longer ranges
Machine Vision - Complex multiple target materials at short to medium ranges
Capacitive Sensors - Bulk materials and liquids through container walls
Magnetic Field Sensors - Wear-free position detection for pneumatic cylinders
Cylinder Sensors - Includes magnetic field, high pressure inductive, analog inductive, and linear position sensors
Ultrasonic Sensors - Analog and discrete outputs for transparent, reflective, contoured objects in dark, dusty, humid environments.
Balluff offers a complete range of sensors for distance and position measurement for applications requiring continuous position feedback. Whether you need to measure a few thousandths of an inch or hundreds of inches, Balluff distance and position sensors provide accurate, reliable, non-contact position feedback.
Linear position transducers - Rugged, absolute position feedback with stroke lengths from 2" to 200"
Inductive Distance Sensors - Analog output for short range, distance measurement of metal targets
