Balluff is expanding their range of sensors—BFT media-contacting temperature sensors, for media-contacting temperature detection such as in hydraulic power units. Continuous monitoring of process media on machines and equipment contributes greatly to process security. Values that need to be maintained are pressure, level and temperature. The BFT media-contacting temperature sensors can be used to monitor the temperature of the hydraulic fluid in a hydraulic system. Monitoring the temperature within the hydraulic loop guarantees correct fluid viscosity and thereby the best performance of a machine.
New features of the BFT media-contacting temperature sensors include a display, a temperature transmitter as well as a PT1000 sensor. The version without display is especially compact and vibration-resistant, whereas the version with the turnable and highly readable display offers high operating convenience and flexible installation.
Depending on the version, the BFT sensors provide PNP switching outputs, analog signals 0…10V /4…20mA or work as a PT1000 sensor. They are simple to install by threading into the process using a standard process connection with G- and NPT threads. Integrating them requires just a 4-pin M12 plug on the sensor.
Critical process conditions such as a temperature limit can be controlled directly via the switching output. An analog output provides continuous measurement results. Furthermore, the BFT temperature sensors is ideal for various applications, including monitoring of cooling water, lubricants and compressed air.
