Balluff has introduced a new compact sensor especially designed for use with C-slot-equipped pneumatic cylinders. The Balluff BMF 273 offers reliable sensing characteristics and a wide range of sensing performance. The BMF 273 sensor, designed to indicate piston stroke end position, fits completely within a standard C-slot. The BMF 273 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 low hysteresis sensor, designed to replace outmoded Reed and Hall-Effect switches, comes with an LED indicator light and uses advanced magneto-resistive technology.
