Balluff BML absolute magnetic encoder

Monday, 23 March, 2020 | Supplied by: Balluff Pty Ltd



The BML absolute magnetic encoder from Balluff is designed for any application where high absolute accuracy of position and end of travel is required. Comprehensive diagnostics functions offer more efficient maintenance. With its Drive-Cliq interface the Balluff measuring system can also be integrated into Siemens controller environments.

Plug-and-play installation is designed to make incorporating the encoder into the drive system easy. The controller automatically detects the sensor and its basic settings. The sensor also offers flexibility, since leaving and re-engaging with the tape is permissible. This opens up simple and economical solutions for demanding applications in the field of automation as well as machine tool building.

Since the system works magnetically, it is also insensitive to temperature change, dirt or wear. Due to its compact form factor and read distance of 1.3 mm, the measuring system is also easy to integrate into existing applications, even in tight mounting conditions.

In practical operation, continuous plausibility checking ensures high reliability, since the system consistently checks the measurement quality. Automatic condition monitoring checks the signal quality.

The linear measuring system is suitable for both long measuring lengths up to 48 m as well as for applications requiring high precision — with an accuracy of up to ±12 µm and a resolution of 1 µm.
