May 3, 2018 - Balluff introduced the BTL7-T500, which offers a range of applications, and safe operation in explosion hazard areas of Zone 0 and Zone 1. This means for example it can be used as well for continuous level measurement in refinery tanks.
The Profibus interface offers flexibility. The position measuring system can be adapted, and means diagnostics of possible errors. A single cable suffices for hookup (BUS-in-out, power).
The non-contact magnetostrictive measuring system in the stainless steel housing with IP 67 protection is insensitive to contamination, and also shock rated to 100 g. It also withstands vibration up to 12 g.
BTL linear magnetostrictive transducers from Balluff in the rod style and installed in hydraulic cylinders have for decades proven their reliability in the most demanding areas of application. The magnetostrictive operating principle allows it to be installed in hermetically sealed housings. The position information i transmitted without contact via magnetic fields through the housing wall into the interior of the sensor.
