SENSOR FOR C-SLOT PNEUMATIC CYLINDERS
Balluff has introduced a compact sensor designed for use with C-slot-equipped pneumatic cylinders. The BMF 273 sensor, designed to indicate piston stroke end position, is 25.7 mm long, and fits completely within a standard C-slot. The sensor is secured by a non-stripping screw, while the cable is also equipped to be secured within the C-slot by a custom-designed mini pop-in fastener.
The unit, designed to replace Reed and Hall-Effect switches, comes with an LED indicator light and uses magnetoresistive technology.
