THE Balluff Micropulse BTL6 AT linear transducer is a non-contact alternative to traditional linear feedback devices such as linear potentiometers (pots).
Balluff designed the Micropulse AT in a modular fashion to simplify manufacturing and reduce component costs to be competitive with these devices.
With absolute position output to a resolution of 10 microns, the BTL6 AT provides precision position indication from power-up, with no need for re-homing.
The 0-10V analogue output ensures universal controller compatibility, with a digital output model available for high noise immunity.
Further benefits are gained with the AT's round housing, allowing the unit to be rotated to sense the position magnet in multiple directions, enhancing installation flexibility.
The position magnet is a floating design, meaning no mechanical linkage is required, saving cost and reducing the complexity of installation, a task made even easier with the AT's convenient M12 connector.
