SMARTLEVEL Capacitive Sensors

Balluff SMARTLEVEL Capacitive SensorsBalluff’s state-of-the-art, industry leading line of capacitive sensors newest member is the Advanced SMARTLEVEL. This sensor combines standard capacitive sensing technology and the patented SMARTLEVEL technology enabling the ability to sense solids and highly conductive acids and bases with the utmost reliability.

The Advanced SMARTLEVEL is housed in 316 stainless steel for the most aggressive environments. The PEEK sensing nose will provide protection against sticky and adhesive materials. This combination of housing materials gives the sensor an IP69 rating and is suitable for use in autoclaves for one hour. When used with the proper mounting accessories the sensor can be used in hygienic applications. Integration into control systems is fast and flexible with either discrete outputs or with IO-Link communication. Teaching the Advanced SMARTLEVEL without IO-Link is easy with the remote teachin connection (white wire) or with parametrization through IO-Link.

MICROmote sensorsBOH MICROmote® sensors

You can count on the photoelectric mini sensors if small parts need to be precisely detected in applications with limited space and if long ranges are important. They reliably detect objects from less than one millimeter to distances of up to ten meters.

With their range of product variants, they are a reliable solution to all applications and offer a great degree of freedom in design.Advanced laser technology, homogeneous red light or innovative pinpoint technology provide high process accuracy. Diffuse sensors with background suppression reliably eliminate interfering influences.
