Pressure sensor family introduced

Balluff's BPS series of pressure sensors come with IP 67 protection and have 11 pressure range versions for monitoring in process media in factory automation.

09/15/2011


Balluff introduced BPS, a newly developed series of pressure sensors with IP 67 protection for use in gaseous and liquid media. The devices feature a ceramic load cell, simple installation, high operating comfort and high precision. A large, bright and easily visible display ensures immediate status overview. This shows not only the current system pressure in bar, mbar, PSI and MPa, but also features fast and simple configuration of the sensors according to the VDMA standard, using 2 keys and intuitive menu guidance.

With 11 pressure range versions the BPS sensors cover all the important ranges from -1…0 bar up to 0…600 bar for monitoring process media in factory automation. Typical applications include hydraulics monitoring as well as pneumatics equipment. The new Balluff pressure sensors, available in the standard model with plastic housing and in the high-end version with stainless steel, offer either two switching points or one switching output plus analog channel (0…10V or 4…20mA).

Thanks to their compact design the sensors can be easily located in the control cabinet without taking up valuable space. The display with operating panel and electrical connection can be rotated independently of each other by 320° with respect to the flange. Adapting to different process terminations using G ¼ internal threads is accomplished using optional adapters in various sizes and styles.

The high-end models, which have stainless steel housing and expanded temperature range, were especially designed for demanding applications in harsh environments, making them ideal for use with wind power turbines, offshore installations as well as HVAC technology.
