May 11, 2018 - Balluff introduced face savers. The face saver can be added to a flush mount sensor to increase the life of the sensor by protecting it from impact damage due to over travel and hostile application environments.
Balluff's face savers install by screwing the protective device on the end of the sensor housing and lining it up the with the sensor's sensing face. The beveled edge allows for adjustments to the placement of the face saver and the set screw can lock the face saver in place. Adding a face saver to a flush mount sensor can protect the sensor from impact damage.
