Balluff ceramic sensor caps

Wednesday, 14 November, 2018 | Supplied by: Balluff Pty Ltd

Often made of aluminium and magnesium/aluminium alloys — which decrease weight but also reduce sensing capabilities — sensors are being placed in tight proximity to the parts being monitored. The face of the sensor is the most vulnerable area and when the face gets damaged, the sensor will start to misread or stop working entirely. The addition of a ceramic cap can help prevent this damage and, therefore, extend the life of the sensor and minimise downtime.

Balluff has released ceramic caps that can increase sensor life, by withstanding high temperatures, weld spatter and abrasives. They are suitable for welding applications and install easily, with M8, M12, M18 and M30 sizes available.

The ceramic caps provide end protection for flush-mount and cylindrical-style inductive proximity sensors. The caps can simply be threaded in place to protect the most vulnerable area of a cylindrical bodied sensor — where the face meets the barrel. The caps are compatible with any brand of sensor.
