Balluff is expanding its already comprehensive range of mini.s miniaturised sensors that can not only be used in very small installation spaces, but can also be easily integrated in existing mechatronic assemblies. The mini.s sensors are available with a broad choice of operating principles, including inductive, optoelectronic, magnetic, capacitive and ultrasonic technologies.
Small housings, low weight and switching precision are the special features provided by all Balluff mini sensors. Thanks to miniaturised styles and high performance, they provide opportunities today that were once not possible due to design and space constraints.
Balluff claims that the world's shortest inductive M12 sensor – with a length of 12 or 17mm (for mounting flush or non-flush) – is typical of these tiny sensors. It is so small that it can be integrated in, among other places, very compact linear slides, valves and actuators.
Also worth noting are miniature sensors such as the binary-switching, magnetic-field sensitive electronic cylinder switches of the BMF series. Entirely new here is, for example, the BMF 243, which, thanks to it small dimensions, is suitable for particularly small grippers and cylinders with C-slots. It has a precise and bounce-free switching response, simple handling and universal use.
With the miniature sensors of the BMF series from Balluff, designers can implement highly dynamic application concepts in pneumatics that can only be realised with low-weight components that have small space requirements.
