Light-weight and miniature sensors are a requirement for robotic end effectors, where weight and installation space have to be carefully accounted for. Balluff's SuperShorties are extremely lightweight, down to 0.7 grams, and with diameters as small as 6.5mm and lengths as short as 6mm, they are the shortest inductive sensors on the market!
Balluff SuperShorties have self-contained electronics, making remote amplifiers unnecessary, and are produced in stainless steel housings, making them more than suitable in a wide range of challenging applications.
Their small housing and low weight combined with their high-switching precision allow the Balluff SuperShorties to fulfill the challenging requirements for robotic end effectors.
