Balluff expands its inductive sensor miniature line with the addition of the BES R04 block sensor. The metal-housed inductive sensor is suitable for extreme applications. Its ceramic sensing face makes it appropriate for applications with weld spatter, metal debris, and vibration; its small size and low profile allow it to be used where space is at a premium.
The short housing length enables integrated installation in compact assemblies. The flat housing form makes the required installation depth extremely small. The sensor’s light weight makes it suitable for applications with high acceleration.
The electronics are fully integrated, so no external amplifier is needed. The high switching frequency allows for high cycle speeds. The ceramic cover on the active surface protects the sensor from weld spatter and sparks.
