BALLUFF's BIL magneto-inductive linear position sensor is mini-proportioned and optimised to provide highly accurate, non-contact continuous positioning information.

The versatile BIL allows existing motion control systems to be affordably upgraded from end-of-stroke to the flexibility and precision of continuous absolute positioning feedback.

Using the latest manufacturing technology Balluff has created its newest and most innovative product in Balluff's line of position feedback systems.

This inductive transducer measures without contact and absolute with a passive position marker, and provides an analogue output.

The BIL is compact, only 95mm long. It fits in tight places other sensors can't and no separate housing is necessary.

The BIL delivers linearised stroke information up to 50mm and non-linearised stroke information up to 60mm.

It has a high resistance to shock, vibration and moisture and there are no moving parts other than the magnet. The BIL is suitable for harsh environments, with potted sensor and electronics.

Voltage and current-output versions are available.
