Our sensors detect speed when integrated in the drive or indirectly. Balluff sensor technology precisely measures the speed of gears and shafts regardless of the diameter – even at high and low speeds.
BML magnetic encoders are recommended for direct integration into linear and rotary drives. You have a large selection of various tapes at your disposal, which you can flexibly adapt to your requirements. We can develop application-specific processing electronics for you or integrate an appropriate circuit into the existing design.
The Absolute Encoder Disc in a compact design detects the absolute position of the motor and drive with high accuracy. The BML Encoder Disc System is therefore an alternative to traditional magnetic, inductive or optical solutions.
The extended temperature range of the inductive BES standard sensors ensures operation free of interference: They measure shaft speeds in the plant construction at temperatures down to –40 °C. Two sensors are sufficient for measuring the speed, detecting the direction of rotation and reliably protecting the equipment from overspeed.
BML S1F magnetic encoders precisely and reliably measure the speeds of the drive shaft directly on the motor. Their narrow form factor allows the existing motor design to remain compact.
Our BML magnetic encoders detect both the direction of rotation and the correct shaft position using reference points. They are extremely accurate at all rotational speeds.
Our BES inductive sensors measure the rotor speed in your wind power plants. Extremely reliable, even at temperatures up to –40 °C. Two inductive sensors aimed at the locking plate are sufficient for measuring the speed and detecting the direction of rotation of the rotor. Balluff thereby reliably protects your plant from overspeed.
Our BML magnetic encoder measures the speed of your rotors with extreme accuracy, even at low speeds. The magnetic tape measurement system is simply attached to the main shaft. This allows it to not only detects the direction of rotation, but also the correct position for the rotor lock using reference points. It does all this without contact and therefore without causing wear.
Generator speed is an important parameter for controlling your plant. The Balluff BML magnetic encoder reads the pole on the magnetic ring without contact, thereby monitoring the generator speed extremely reliably. Our sensors can also be used on shafts with a large diameter, e.g. due to a variety of ring diameters or as tape solutions. Through maximum durability and precision, we guarantee you optimum control quality for feed-in.
