Balluff's UltraFrame™ series is the latest in self-contained thru-beam sensor technology and is designed to solve problems many other sensors cannot. Offering reliable performance in an innovative package, these sensors are the first ones to use in error-proofing, process monitoring, and general automation tasks in a number of environments. With the broadest selection of sizes, shapes, and light sources available today, there is an UltraFrame sensor waiting to provide a solution to your application that will save you time, money, and headaches.
The UltraFrame sensors' one piece housings contain both emitter and receiver elements with pre-aligned optics, providing easy installation and an end to misalignment nuisances. This means no more fiber optic cable hassles or routing of multiple power cords. On-board sensitivity and light/dark operation controls provide for easy adjustment to your process.
Available in four basic frame designs, these sensors have multiple sizes to choose from. Up to four application-specific light sources are also available to suit your design requirements, including: visible red (easy set up), pinpoint visible red (higher precision), visible red laser (highest precision), and high-power infrared (burns through accumulated dirt). With this level of flexibility, UltraFrame sensors are simply the ones to use first.
