Magnetic Field Sensor For Space Critical Applications
The flush mounting compact BMF 243 drop-in C-slot sensor for position detection from Balluff offers high performance reserves for cylinders with both weak as well as with strong magnets and offers high repeat accuracy and small hysteresis.
Introducing the newest magnetic field sensors from Balluff Inc. (Florence, KY), the BMF 243 drop-in C-slot sensor. Based on GMR technology, these sensors provide improved sensor performance and better reliability that results in less downtime and increased productivity. Like all of the other Balluff magnetic field sensors, the BMF 243 is backed by Balluff’s exclusive LIFETIME warranty.
Features of the new BMF 243 sensor:
- Installs from above for easy drop-in installation
- Superior holding strength
- Miniature design for short stroke cylinders
- Precise, accurate switch point
- Short circuit, overload and reverse polarity protected
The new BMF 243 compact sensor offers high performance reserves for cylinders with both weak as well as with strong magnets and offers high repeat accuracy and small hysteresis. Thanks to its small dimensions of 3.8 x 24 x 3 mm, it’s the ideal choice for particularly small grippers and cylinders with C-slots. With its integrated bracket, the sensor is simply inserted into the slot from above, fitting completely into the cylinder without protruding. The BMF 243 is supplied with a cable clip that guarantees optimum strain relief and secures cable routing.
The BMF 243 is also available in the popular V-Twin version – two sensors with only one connector, providing substantial cost savings, and reduced installation times.
With the miniature sensors of the Balluff BMF series, designers can implement highly dynamic application concepts in pneumatics that can only be realized with low-weight components that have small space requirements. The BMF 243 compact sensor ideally complements two other Balluff miniature sensors: the BMF 103, the shortest cylinder switch on the market and the BMF 303 where by selecting the right bracket you can adapt the sensor to virtually any pneumatic cylinder.
