Balluff's new BIP linear inductive positioning system uses an absolute measuring principle for position monitoring in applications such as drive spindles and clamping devices for tools and workpieces. The sensor can also be used for many other mechanical engineering tasks with linear motion, such as for measuring punch depth, grab positions, rolling positions or valve positions.
The non-contact BIP sensor can reliably detect linear travel of up to 40mm. It has an excellent resolution of 14 microns, high repeat accuracy of +/-80 microns and non-linearity of +/-250 microns. The standard output is 0-10V.
Mechanical adjustments are not necessary, as the sensor is teachable on site, enabling the measuring range to be adapted to the application. With the IO-Link variant, this is also possible via the control system.
