Balluff introduces chemical-resistant stainless-steel fork sensors
September 10, 2018 - Balluff has introduced a new family of stainless-steel fork sensors with resistance to aggressive cleaning agents, chemicals and coolants.
The sensors, with PMMA optic lenses, are suited especially for packaging, food and beverage industries, but can be used in a variety of applications across many industries. The IP67/IP69K housing allows for washdown.
The new sensors feature normally open and normally closed outputs for integration into control systems. Multiple light sources – red light for easy setup or infrared light source for highly contaminated or environments with water or mist in the air – enables this sensor to be used in a multitude of applications. The sensor has a pigtail with M12 connector, integral LEDs for output function and power-on indication aids in troubleshooting.
