At the 2011 Hannover Fair Balluff introduced BSP pressure sensors with IP67 protection for use with gaseous and liquid media. The rugged devices feature a high-quality, long-term stable ceramic loadcell, an attractive price/performance ratio, simple installation, high operating comfort and high precision. There is also a large, bright and easily visible display. This shows not only the current system pressure in bar, mbar, PSI and MPa, but also enables fast and simple configuration of the sensors according to the VDMA standard, using two keys and an intuitive menu.
With 11 pressure range versions available, the BSP sensors cover all the important ranges from -1 to 0bar up to 0 to 600bar for monitoring process media in factory automation. Typical applications include monitoring hydraulics and pneumatics. The new Balluff pressure sensors, available in the standard model with plastic housing and in the high-end version with a stainless steel housing, offer either two switching points or one switching output plus an analogue channel (0-10V or 4-20mA).
Thanks to their highly compact design, the sensors can be easily located without taking up valuable space. The display with operating panel and electrical connection can be rotated independently of each other by 320deg with respect to the flange. Adapting to different process terminations using G 1/4 internal threads is easily accomplished using optional adapters in various sizes and styles.
The high-end models with their stainless steel housing and expanded temperature range were designed for demanding applications in harsh environments, making them suitable for use with wind power turbines, offshore installations and HVAC technology.
