Inductive Sensors:
Balluff inductive sensors are used for controlling, regulating, automating, positioning and monitoring of work processes. Applications include machine tools, plastics machinery, textile machines, assembly lines, and anywhere processes need to be automated!
Photoelectric Sensors:
Our wide-ranging opto line finds applications in all areas of automation. Along with tubular housings from M12 to M30, in both metal and plastic, Balluff offers a range of sensors in rigid, block-shaped plastic housings in nearly all sizes with various functions and performance characteristics.
Capacitive Sensors:
Capacitive sensors detect the change in capacitance of an object when it enters the sensor’s electrical field. These sensors can detect not only metal, but even non-conductors whose dielectric constants are sufficiently large. Properly selected, a capacitive sensor is also able to “see through” certain non-metallic materials. This makes it the classical level detector, sensing the presence of absence of liquids or granular material through the container wall.
Mechanical Sensors:
Electromechanical sensors serve as precision command givers with automatic controls for positioning and limit switching on machine tools, flexible manufacturing equipment, robots, assembly and conveying equipment. They have been designed and proven for use under extreme conditions.
Cylinder & Value Sensors:
Balluff inductive sensors are used for controlling, regulating, automating, positioning and monitoring of work processes. Applications include machine tools, plastics machinery, textile machines, assembly lines, and anywhere processes need to be automated!
Remote Systems: The use of remote systems is a proven solution wherever hardwired sensors cannot be used, such as on indexing tables and interchangeable stamping heads. The sensors participate in the motion of the machine components to which they are attached.
Micropulse Transducers:
Balluff Micropulse transducers are ideal for use in hydraulic cylinders for position feedback or as a level monitor with aggressive media in the food and chemical industries.
Identification Systems:
Balluff identification systems are indispensable tools for managing the flood of information in today’s assembly operations. The right data at the right time at the right place: For complex assembly instructions, complete test records, or just a 4-digit identification number, Balluff has the right ID System solutions!
BUS Systems:
BUS Systems ensure a reliable exchange of information between material flow and data processing, including all areas of manufacturing where materials are being moved. The AS-Interface is an uncomplicated, economical, fast and reliable system connecting binary sensors and actuators on a common line with the first control level, for example a programmable controller or PC.
Connectors:
Balluff offers a variety of connectors and cables to get your sensor products up and running.
Accessories:
Balluff offers a variety of accessories to make working with your sensors a snap!

Balluff’s Self-Contained Thru-Beam Family…The first sensor specially designed for the
Assembly Industry.
From part handling to error proofing, Balluff BGL sensors are designed to streamline any assembly process. No more alignment problems, fragile installations, and fiber optic complexity. Their rugged features and built-in reliability make them a natural to meet the demanding assembly applications such as part position, feed tracks, grippers, pallet transfer, pick and place, and Poke-Yoke.

The Micropulse AT
An All Around Performer
The Balluff Micropulse BTL6 AT magnetostrictive linear transducer is a superior non-contact alternative to traditional low-cost linear feedback devices such as linear potentiometers (pots).
