Flatpack SteelFace Sensor Boasts Weld-Resistant Coating

Tuesday, October 1, 2013

Balluff, Florence, KY, introduces a flatpack version of its SteelFace sensors, with a one-piece stainless-steel housing, for stamping and welding applications that require something more compact than a tubular sensor. Its new patent-pending coating makes it an ideal choice for extreme applications.

SteelFace sensors are designed for error-proofing and part-present applications in heavy manufacturing, where inductive sensors are often—by necessity—placed directly in harm’s . Impact, abrasion and particulate erosion can destroy conventional plastic-faced sensors and their thin metal bodies.

Additional features of the new flatpack SteelFace sensors:

• 5-mm operating distance (flush)

• Factor 1—All metals can be sensed

• Weld-slag-resistant coating

• Weld-field immune

• High switching frequency

• Rounded-corner housing
