Reliable and accurate linear position detection
07 April 2011
Balluff's new BIP linear inductive positioning system has an absolute measuring principle for the position monitoring of applications such as drive spindles and clamping devices for tools and workpieces. The sensor can also be used for many other mechanical engineering tasks involving linear motion, including as punch depth, grab positions, rolling positions, valve positions, and so on.
The non-contact BIP reliably detects linear travel of up to 40mm with a resolution of 14 microns and a repeat accuracy of +/- 80 microns to provide a standard output of 0-10V. Mechanical adjustments are not necessary as the sensor is teachable on site, enabling the measuring range to be adapted to the application. With the IO-Link Variant this can be achieved remotely via the control system.
