Balluff’s newest family of 5 mm inductive sensors are designed to take the heat. Unique to the market, these miniature sensors are approved to operate at ambient temperatures of up to 135 °C.
Along with the high temperature resistance, both the sensor and the connector provide IP67 rated protection thanks to a new crimping technique used to connect the silicone cables. This plus their stainless steel housing and ceramic face make them especially well suited for the hydraulic and semiconductor industries. They can withstand dynamic pressure of up to 10 bar and are available in both NPN and PNP normally open outputs with either an M8 connector or a cable out connection of up to 10 meters.
“These are a fantastic addition to the inductive family. Customers have wanted higher temperature inductives for some time and we’ve delivered,” said Jack Moermond, Balluff engineering partner manager.
An LED in the connector gives easy visibility into the operating and switching state. The sensors are flush mounted, offer a .8 mm sensing range, and are available in housing lengths of either 27 mm or 42 mm.
