Balluff's rugged Steelface sensor for extreme environments

Balluff's rugged Steelface sensor for extreme environments Balluff's latest SteelFace inductive sensor has been designed to offer superior resistance to chemical and cutting fluids. Milled from just one piece of solid stainless steel the sensor is rated for 1200 psi wash-down applications. The 1mm thick impact and abrasion resistant face withstands 500 psi dynamic pressure. The result is an extra-rugged sensor that reduces replacement costs and production downtime. Replacing damaged sensors is a time consuming and costly process. The extra-rugged construction of the Balluff Steelface sensor reduces replacement costs and more importantly production downtime. The sensor is machined from a single piece of solid stainless steel, giving superior chemical and cutting fluid resistance to IP67. Balluff's SteelFace ferrous-only sensor detects just ferrous. A typical application would be aluminium machining detecting tool pallets, cutting tools and fixtures. The sensor is designed to ignore high amounts of non-ferrous aluminium chips that are generated during the machining operation. The non-ferrous-only sensor detects non-ferrous and ignores ferrous objects, so when detecting the presence of objects such as aluminium engine blocks, the sensor ignores the ferrous pallets or fixtures that hold them. Balluff SteelFace sensors, available in 8, 12, 18, and 30 mm sizes, are particularly suited for machine tools, in-die sensing, wash down applications, and other applications that require a rugged sensor.
