Measuring systems with IO-Link

18 June 2013

Position measuring systems from Balluff enable the precise detection of measurement paths in large parts of the manufacturing and assembly industry.

With the Micropulse BTL6 Profile PF IO-Link model, Balluff is the first company worldwide to equip magnetostrictive position measuring systems with IO-Link.

All measured values and status data are sent digitally and via a simple, three-wire cable via IO-Link master to the control level. The contact-free transducers with intelligent communication interface are used preferably where comprehensive IO-Link designs are to simplify the configuration, accelerate the installation and reduce costs during wiring.

Thanks to IO-Link, the end results are streamlined and productive manufacturing solutions that permit automatic configuration during running operation and transparent diagnostics down to the process level.

PF magnetostrictive position measuring systems from Balluff are characterised by their flat construction and a robust, shock-, vibration- and soiling-insensitive design in enclosure rating IP 67.

Thanks to multi-magnet technology, the contact-free transducers reliably detect the measurement position and ensure absolute and precise results. Measurement lengths from 50 to 4570mm can be realised; the position measuring systems tolerate a vertical and horizontal offset of the position encoder to the sensor profile of up to 15mm.
