COMBINING the latest in waveguide technology and electronics, the new generation BTL5 from Balluff provides a superior positioning system for hydraulic systems with 100% adjustability of the analogue signal.

For example, if you have a two metre cylinder but only require the output signal over the last 200mm, with the aid of the set-up tool the output can be readjusted quickly and easily - without the aid of any additional software or PC programming.

Micropulse transducers in the new generation 5 range feature completely new waveguide technology. In terms of shock and vibration resistance, Micropulse transducers are one of the market leaders.

Combined with the new Generation 5 electronics, linearity and hysteresis have been improved even more.

A resolution of 5 æm, achieved without resorting to averaging or recirculation, is impressive evidence of the performance potential of this new generation.

Pressure rated to 600 bar, the BTL5 Micropulse transducers now feature Balluff's new "autotuning" electronics. With auto-tuning, the transducer automatically adapts to various magnetic field strengths from different magnets, without sacrificing accuracy or resolution.

Micropulse transducers can be easily installed in cylinders areas containing the magnet of a different manufacturer.
