Balluff’s BES inductive sensors in the Q08 block-style housing (8 × 8 mm) are now available with IO-Link interface. They reliably monitor, control and automate processes and status conditions while flush mounted in metal, while also providing the benefits of IO-Link.
Important sensor parameters such as switching cycles and operating temperature can be easily sent to the controller to give you a complete overview of your process. You can set the switchpoint of these wear-free and contamination-resistant sensors after installation. In addition to the output through IO-Link, a switching output is also available.
With a switching frequency of 1200 Hz (SIO mode), these sensors are especially ideal for applications that require high switching frequencies.
- For tight mounting situations: Q08 block-style housing
- Quick, easy connection using IO-Link
- Flexible switchpoint setting after installation
- Cables with M08 and M12 connector available
Automation without inductive sensors can hardly be imagined. Wear-resistant, reliable non-contact position detection of metallic objects is required wherever automation is used, whether in mechanical engineering, electronics production, automotive, food, or plastics industries.
Balluff offers a wide range of inductive sensors with diverse designs for nearly any application: from standard sensors to sensors with increased switching distance, hygienic sensors, high-pressure sensors, ex-zone sensors for hazardous areas, and factor 1 sensors. Some sensors have an additional ceramic or PTFE coating so that weld spatter, for example, cannot adhere to them. Sensors that are both factor 1 and all-metal are also available.
Aided by inductive sensors from Balluff, you can automate, monitor, and control processes and conditions at the highest quality, even in extreme environments.
