Does Balluff have fast, synchronous, and precise position feedback linear position sensors with Ethernet/IP interface?

Linear position sensors with Ethernet/IP interface

Uniform, simple wiring, continuous diagnostics and central parameter setting via the controller are among the benefits of this linear position sensor with Ethernet/IP interface. The magnetostrictive system with Flexible Magnet Mode (FMM) allows you to work with up to 16 position magnets. Two values can be output for each magnet: position and velocity.

The sensor even automatically adapts itself to the number of magnets. This makes it easy to use in applications where a varying number of magnets is used. The wide range of functions provides great flexibility in linear position measurement – for example in hydraulic cylinder control
or level measurement.



■ Synchronous measurement value acquisition and data transmission with Ethernet/IP CIP sync
■ Fast, precise absolute position and velocity measurement with 1 µm resolution
■ Simple and time-saving startup thanks to defined parameter substitution and flexible application tailoring
■ Non-contact and wear-free, insensitive to contamination
■ Available in profile- and rod-style

The common models are as follows:
