The latest additions to Balluff’s inductive sensor portfolio deliver the benefits of Factor 1 and weld-field immunity. 

The high-precision sensors reliably detect ferrous and non-ferrous metals including steel, aluminum or brass at an identical switching distance, unlike typical inductive sensors which have a reduced range for non-ferrous metals. This makes it possible to detect objects of different materials in a single application. 

Additionally, the sensors are weld-field immune, meaning they aren’t affected by even strong electromagnetic fields. Combined with their extended temperature range (from -40°C / -25°C to 70°C / 85°C depending on the sensor), this ensures fault-free processing, even in tough environments. PTFE coated versions are available for applications in welding environments.

They come in M12 and M18 sizes and for flush and non-flush installation.
