Balluff redundant linear position sensors now available with SSI and Start/Stop.
Balluff has unveiled a fail-safe magnetostrictive linear position sensors with digital interfaces and up to three independent measuring systems. Available in four form factors, each of the rod-style transducers has either two or three separate sets of electronics and sensing elements operating concurrently in in a single housing. Each linear transducer versions is available with either SSI and Start/Stop digital interface. The digital sensors deliver up to 1000 Hz sampling frequency, are pressure rated to 600 bar and resolution down to 0.5 µm. The IP67-rated sensors feature redundant position measurement and selectable output signals via software.
