Balluff products include a complete line of sensors, transducers, ID systems, and connectivity products. Their sensor lines include photoelectric, inductive, capacitive and magnetic, as well as other more specialized sensor products to fit virtually any sensing application.

Photoelectric Sensors

Balluff Photoelectric sensors

Balluff’s photoelectric sensors include a wide variety of housings, such as exclusive miniature designs, tubular styles from 8mm through 30mm, and small, medium, and large block styles. These devices provide non-contact detection of parts over longer distances than other sensing modes such as inductive or capacitive sensors while providing numerous mounting options and flexibility.

Capacitive Sensors


Balluff Capacitive sensors

Balluff’s capacitive sensors are not only superior in object and level detection, they are also highly specialized for a wide range of challenging applications. They offer high temperature and pressure ratings, stainless steel and PTFE housings for harsh environments, a wide supply voltage range and especially compact form factors.

Balluff sensors reliably detect objects over long distances. They are suitable for non-contacting detection of solid bodies made of glass, wood, metal, plastic, composite materials, liquids and bulk materials.

Inductive Sensors


Balluff Inductive Sensors

Balluff offers a wide range of inductive sensors with diverse designs for nearly any application: from standard sensors to sensors with increased switching distance, hygienic sensors, high-pressure sensors, ex-zone sensors for hazardous areas, and factor 1 sensors. Some sensors have an additional ceramic or PTFE coating so that weld spatter, for example, cannot adhere to them. Sensors that are both factor 1 and all-metal are also available.

RFID Systems

Balluff RFID systems

Objects can be automatically identified and traced using RFID. Balluff offers a broad selection of innovative products for the low frequency (LF), high frequency (HF) and ultra-high frequency (UHF) range. The LF systems used mostly in metal environments are especially rugged and reliable. HF systems are preferred where greater read/write distances and high traverse speed are demanded. With the BIS V frequency-independent processor unit, all systems can be flexibly combined with each other to save costs through greater flexibility and lower inventory levels.

Distributed I/O


Balluff Distributed I/O

Intelligently combining industrial networks with the IO-Link communication standard is the ideal solution for ever faster, more flexible, more efficient and more adaptable production. It provides a powerful infrastructure for reliably managing the growing volume of data, transporting data through the entire manufacturing process and achieving seamless communication from the intelligent sensor up to the internet.

I/O master blocks from Balluff connect discrete and analog I/O sensors and actuators to the control level via a fieldbus or network. The number of lines is substantially reduced by the use of the blocks. I/O blocks offer additional functions for signal preprocessing and expanded diagnostic options.
