Balluff offers the BTL6-U101, which belongs to the non-contact position measurement sensors with IO-LINK interface. It is a magnetostrictive linear position sensor for the use in hydraulic cylinders as well as level measurement.
The uniform, simple wiring, continuous diagnostics and centralized parameter setting from the controller are some of the benefits of this position measuring system with IO-Link interface. The magnetostrictive system can operate in Flexible Magnet Mode (FMM) with one or two magnets and automatically responds to them. The system can output both position values or determine the differential value between them.
In addition, the speed values or the current internal device temperature can be output. The functionality range makes possible flexible application solutions for hydraulic cylinder control and level measurement.
