Linear position sensors play an important role in today’s complex and increasingly efficient manufacturing processes. Providing accurate, reliable, continuous position feedback is only the start. Linear position sensors must also deliver value by being easy to install and easy to use, without taking up valuable space.
Balluff’s new Micropulse® PF-series linear transducer is the “Perfect Fit”. The Micropulse PF provides accurate, reliable linear position feedback in a sleek, low-profile anodized aluminum housing. Incorporating time-tested, field-proven non-contact magnetostrictive sensing technology, the Micropulse PF represents an unmatched combination of performance, usability, and value.
Unique features of the Micropulse PF:
– Low-profile, space-saving housing (less than 1” high)
– Scalable, absolute, analog output
– Stroke lengths up to 180"
– Bi-color status LED
– Sliding captive or free-floating position magnets
– Assembled in the USA with a 5-day standard delivery
The Micropulse PF transducer can be used in a wide variety of applications such as: plastic injection and blow molding; woodworking and metalforming; material handling and packaging machinery; tire and rubber manufacturing, as an externally mounted cylinder position transducer, and for general factory automation.
