Balluff Magnetic sensors with IO-Link
These magnetic position sensors combine IO-Link, analog voltage and analog current in one device to overcome the limitations of discrete pneumatic cylinder switches. The sensors provide continuous linear feedback, detecting and measuring the position of pneumatic or hydraulic cylinder rods and actuators through nonferrous housing walls, over the entire measurement range. They do it all contact-free. They are suitable for Industry 4.0 as they improve ease of automation size change and allow for condition monitoring and predictive maintenance. The sensors calculate the actual target position of the magnet and output it as a position-dependent analog or IO-Link signal. They deliver signal stability and reliability.
