Balluff BTL transducers with real-time Ethernet interface
BTL7 series transducers are available in rod and profile housings with an Ethernet interface. They offer standardized communication protocols and automatic address assignment that help to simplify integration of the transducer into the controller and the plant network, eliminating complex programming. Four diagnostic LEDs on the sensor head can check the status of both the sensor and Ethernet connection. The transducer is suitable for use in advanced applications (those involving controlled axes, for example) because of synchronous, fast and secure real-time data transmission and dynamic position measurement with 1 μm resolution. The transducers can detect and process up to 16 position encoders.
