Rugged Sensors Shine In Small-Scale Process Apps

Balluff is expanding its range of sensors for media-contacting temperature detection, in hydraulic power units for example. First up are a temperature sensor with display, a temperature transmitter, and a PT1000 sensor. The version without display is compact and vibration-resistant, whereas the versions with the turnable display offers flexible installation.


Depending on the version, the BFT sensors provide PNP switching outputs, analog signals 0 to 10V /4 to 20 mA or work as a PT1000 sensor. They are said to be simple to install by threading into the process using a standard process connection with G- and NPT threads. Integrating them requires a 4-pin M12 plug on the sensor.
