AutomationDirect has added Balluff BCS series capacitive proximity sensors to their robust selection of object detection sensors. They are available in 12 to 30mm tubular, 50mm round, and small rectangular body styles and offer sensing distances up to 30mm.
These DC-powered sensors feature rugged stainless steel or thermoplastic housings with protection ratings up to IP67 for harsh industrial environments.
The BCS series capacitive proximity sensors are UL listed, RoHS compliant, and UKCA and CE marked. They offer a 2-year warranty and start at $92.00.
The latest addition to Balluff’s safety portfolio delivers precise, non-contact position measurement for demanding automation applications. Balluff’s BML SF2 magnetic safety encoder measures and transmits safe incremental position information to a connected safety control system using a G interface, an analog signal with 1 Vpp (sin/cos). The G interface is certified for applications up to Safety Integrity Level 2 (SIL 2) per EN 61800-5-2 / EN 62061 / IEC 61508 and Performance Level d (PL d) per EN ISO 13849-1.
