Balluff, Florence, KY, introduces the BMF 243 drop-in C-slot sensor, a flush mounting company sensor for position detection and space critical applications. Based on GMR technology, these sensors provide improved sensor performance and better reliability that results in less downtime and increased productivity.
The new BMF 243 compact sensor offers high performance reserves for cylinders with both weak as well as with strong magnets and offers high repeat accuracy and small hysteresis. Measuring only 3.8 x 24 x 3 mm, it’s ideal for particularly small grippers and cylinders with C-slots. With its integrated bracket, the sensor is simply inserted into the slot from above, fitting completely into the cylinder without protruding. The BMF 243 is supplied with a cable clip that guarantees optimum strain relief and secures cable routing. The BMF 243 is also available in a V-Twin version – two sensors with only one connector, providing substantial cost savings, and reduced installation times.
