Inductive miniature sensor is designed for extreme applications
Balluff BES R04 block sensor is designed for harsh and demanding mechanical environments and its ceramic cover protects the sensor from debris and vibration.
Balluff's BES R04 is a metal housed inductive block sensor that is designed for extreme applications. The sensor also offers a ceramic sensing face making it an excellent choice for applications with weld spatter, metal debris, and vibration; and its small size and low profile makes it useful in situations where space is at a premium. Its short housing length enables integrated installation even in compact assemblies and it has fully integrated electronics, which means no external amplifier is needed.
Its brass housing with fully potted electronics and low mass allows the sensor to work even in mechanically demanding machines, which makes it useful for applications in harsh environments. A single M3 screw provides a secure hold for the sensor for simple mounting.
