BPS: New pressure sensor family from Balluff

BPS: New pressure sensor family from Balluff
Balluff introduces BPS, a newly developed series of pressure sensors with IP 67 protection for use in gaseous and liquid media. The rugged devices feature a high-quality, long-term stable ceramic load cell and an especially attractive price/performance ratio, simple installation, high operating comfort and high preci-sion. A large, bright and easily visible display ensures immediate status overview. This shows not only the current system pressure in bar, mbar, PSI and MPa, but also features fast and simple configuration of the sensors according to the VDMA standard, using 2 keys and intuitive menu guidance.

Read 1D and 2D Barcodes with the New BVS-E Identification Vision Sensor from Balluff

The new BVS-E Identification vision sensor from Balluff checks the markings on your products regardless of whether you label them with 1D codes (barcodes) or 2D codes (Data Matrix codes), reading all common codes on the market. Text and sequences of numbers such as code plain text can be verified using OCV, Optimal Character Verification, the result a simple 'Inspection OK' or ‘Inspection not OK'. If you need to view the read code data to find out which parts are being processed you can output via the RS232 or Ethernet interface.

IO-Link Analog Plug: convert analog signals into IO-Link signals

IO-Link Analog Plug: convert analog signals into IO-Link signals
Until now it has been costly to connect and incorporate analog input/output signals, even though they generally only make up less than 10% of the signals used in a system. The reasons include the use of shielded cable on the installation side and expensive multi-channel input modules on the controller side. The new IO-Link Analog Plugs from Balluff with their high resolution of 14 bits provide the solution. They are the ideal choice for systems with limited instances of analog signals.
