The Optosensor series BOS 23K Balluff has recently been offering laser versions. Special protective measures are not necessary as all laser sensors are optionally also available with laser class 1. Through the use of extremely powerful light sources, the user can capture even critical objects safely. The sensors are suitable both for small special machines and for large systems, eg. B. in storage and materials handling.
The background-blanked laser light scanner has an extremely precise background suppression with a detection range of 1000 mm. The captive laser marking and the flexible mounting options are further advantages of this series.
With the Micropulse transducer "ProCompact" the sensor specialist offers a system for wind and weather. Balluff sets new standards in the outdoor use of magnetostrictive displacement measuring systems. It has a sturdy, fully welded stainless steel housing with stainless steel screw connection, which allows easy adaptation of a cable protection system. With the IP 67 or IP 69K degree of protection, the position measuring system is a very good solution if you want to precisely record the piston position of hydraulic cylinders even under the most adverse outdoor conditions.
