Eight programmable switch points with IO-Link from Balluff
Balluff BMF magnetic field sensors for cylinders, grippers and valves have evolved to offer a solution for many types of applications. The newest technology in the Balluff BMF family is the all new remote teach sensor, featuring advanced settings through IO-Link.
Savings are found in the total cost of new machine builds by reducing the complexity of the number of sensors required per cylinder, by reducing mounting time and by reducing the number of electrical sensor connections required for the project. For manufacturers this new innovative magnetic field sensor is versatile, offing the advantage to standardize on one sensor to reduce inventory cost and part number management. With fine tune adjustability this allows the customer to apply the sensor for multiple applications in industries such as factory automation, automotive manufacturing & packaging equipment.
Various versions are available in the Multiple Switchpoint family:
Electical Outputs: PNP/NPN NO/NC and IO-Link PNP NO
Pigtail Connectors: M12 and M8
Temperature range: -25 to +80 °C
Industry Standard: C and T slot
