Balluff’s media-contacting temperature sensors provide continuous monitoring and measuring of process media temperature on machines and equipment.

With these sensors, users can directly control critical process conditions such as a temperature limit via the switching output, which switches when the temperature exceeds the selected setpoint range. The sensor’s temperature monitoring range is –20 to +80 °C.

The sensors can monitor fluid temperature in hydraulic systems, which helps maintain correct fluid viscosity and contributes greatly to process quality and machine performance. The sensors can also monitor cooling water, lubricants or compressed air.
