The linear position sensing devices which can furnish precise, safe and constant position data are important for effective, composite manufacturing procedures. The position sensors should consume restricted space, must be user-friendly and capable of easy installation for using in the manufacturing process.
Balluff, a global manufacturer of various optical, inductive, magnetic, capacitive sensors, linear position transducers and ID systems, launched its PF-series linear sensor, Micropulse® which can supply reliable, precise position information at a stretch .The position sensors are insulated using low-contour anodized aluminum and uses field-verified, time-tested, contact-free magnetostrictive sensing technique meeting high quality, precision and utility.
The Micropulse PF-series or “Perfect Fit”, linear sensor features several characteristics such as less-space, low-contour, discrete and measurable analog yield, 180 inches stroke length, LED with bi-color display, free-flowing, captive ,sliding position magnets and five days standard delivery in the US.
The transducers/sensors can be used in material handling and packaging machinery, woodworking and metalforming, plastic injection and blow molding, tire and rubber manufacturing, general factory automation and in the exterior fixed cylinder position sensor.
