Balluff F Series stainless steel fork sensors

Wednesday, 23 January, 2019 | Supplied by: Balluff Pty Ltd

Balluff has released the F Series stainless steel fork sensors with resistance to aggressive cleaning agents, chemicals, coolants and other media. The series provides a viable solution for demanding environments in a wide variety of applications, including hygienic.

Available in 50 and 80 mm widths, the sensors feature normally open and normally closed outputs for easy integration into control systems. Multiple light sources — red light for easy set-up or infrared light for highly contaminated or environments with water or mist in the air — enable the sensor to be used in a wide range of applications. The pigtail with M12 connector and integral LEDs for output function and power-on indication aid in fast and easy troubleshooting. There is no alignment required with a self-contained through-beam sensor.

PMMA optic lenses and 316L stainless steel housing make the sensors suitable for food and beverage applications, and the IP67/IP69K housing offers washdown resistance.

Versions are available for transparent detection and liquid detection, and analog outputs for edge positioning are also included in the range.
