New Ceramic Caps Provide Protection and Extend Sensor Life

Balluff's newest ceramic caps extend sensor life and minimize downtime by providing a layer of needed protection to the face of sensors in harsh conditions. The caps, which can be added easily before or after installation, protect flush mount sensors from high temperatures, weld spatter, abrasives, and impact.

Often made of aluminum and magnesium/aluminum alloys, which decreases weight but also reduces sensing capabilities, sensors are being placed in tight proximity to the parts being monitored — and right in harm's way. The face of the sensor is the most vulnerable area and when the face gets damaged, the sensor will start to misread or stop working entirely. The addition of a ceramic cap can help prevent this damage and, therefore, extend the life of the sensor and minimize downtime.
