Positioning Transducers for Stamping, Die Casting Applications

May 11, 2012

Balluff Micropulse® Generation 7 Linear Position Transducers Are Now Available with a Rapid Replacement Module Option

Balluff's new field-replaceable electronics module cuts downtime and allows quick electronics replacement without removing the probe from the hydraulic cylinder.

Balluff’s popular Micropulse® Generation 7 linear position transducers are now available with a Rapid Replacement Module (RRM) option. This RRM option allows quick field replacement without removing the pressure tube from the hydraulic cylinder, making field-level maintenance fast and easy. With the RRM option, the transducer electronics and sensing element can be replaced as a single unit, while the hydraulic seal remains intact.

Rapid Replacement Module Benefits:
    •    No hydraulic oil spillage, and no need for environmental containment
    •    No danger of hot oil spillage
    •    No need to bleed air from the hydraulic system after replacement
    •    No danger of hydraulic system contamination
    •    100% exchange of sensor package eliminates troubleshooting guesswork
    •    Dimensionally identical to standard Balluff rod-style transducers
    •    Replacement cartridges can be installed into existing standard pressure tubes
    •    Available for all BTL7 output and connector types

Micropulse® transducers are used in stamping presses, die casting, and all types of automated machinery where a continuous, absolute position signal is required.
