RUGGED SENSORS FOR MEDIA-CONTACT TEMPERATURE DETECTION

German automation specialist Balluff is expanding its range of sensors for media-contacting temperature detection, in hydraulic power units for example. The version with a turnable and highly readable display offers high flexible installation and operating convenience, whereas the version without display is especially compact and vibration-resistant.

Depending on the version, the BFT sensors provide PNP switching outputs, analog signals 0-10V /4-20mA or work as a PT1000 sensor. They are simple to install by threading into the process using a standard process connection with G- and NPT threads. Integrating them requires just a 4-pin M12 plug on the sensor.

Continuous monitoring of process media on machines and equipment contributes greatly to process security. Pressure, level and temperature need to be maintained. For example, monitoring the temperature of the fluid in a hydraulic system can be done reliably using BFT media-contacting temperature sensors. Monitoring the temperature within the hydraulic loop guarantees correct fluid viscosity and thereby the best performance of a machine.

Critical process conditions such as a temperature limit can be controlled directly via the switching output. An analog output provides continuous measurement results. The BFT temperature sensors also stand out when it comes to monitoring the cooling water, lubricants and compressed air, making them ideal for a variety of applications.
