Balluff: Economical magnetic field cylinder sensors

Balluff’s Global BMF expands their global line of products to include a broad line of economically-priced magnetic field cylinder sensors.
FILED IN:  Controls  > Sensors

BMF magnetic field cylinder sensors are based on non-contact, solid-state sensor technology that is compatible with both reed and Hall Effect magnetic pole orientations, making them a suitable replacement for standard magnetic switches. Electrically rugged, they feature short circuit protection, overload protection, and reverse polarity protection--all backed by Balluff’s exclusive Lifetime Warranty.

Compact BMF sensors are designed to fit either C-slot or T-slot extrusions and require no additional brackets for mounting. These sensors fit flush into the slot, offering better sensor protection.  Flush mounting sensors make installation in space-critical applications easier and less time consuming. In addition, cable clips are included for cleaner cable routing and better strain relief.

The Global BMF line includes the following models:  BMF 204 and BMF 214 C-slot--magnetic field sensors are C-slot styles that are bracketless and provide rock-solid holding; BMF 235 T-slot--magnetic field sensors are T-slot styles that are bracketless and provide rock-solid holding; Balluff’s V-Twin--magnetic field sensors provide two sensors for C-slot and T-slot with a single connector in either an M8 or M12 configuration.
