Rugged sensors for small-scale process technology
Balluff is expanding its range of sensors for media-contacting temperature detection – in hydraulic power units for example. These include a new temperature sensor with display, a temperature transmitter and a PT1000 sensor.
Versions without a display are compact and vibration-resistant, whereas versions with a turnable and readable display offer operating convenience and flexible installation.
Depending on the version, the BFT sensors provide PNP switching outputs, analogue signals 0-10V /4-20mA 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 just a 4-pin M12 plug on the sensor.
Continuous monitoring of process media contributes to process security. Values that need to be maintained include pressure, level and temperature. When, for example in a hydraulic system, you need to monitor the temperature of the hydraulic fluid, you can do this reliably using our BFT media-contacting temperature sensors.>
