SuperShorty Inductive Sensor

SuperShorty Inductive Sensor

Balluff's SuperShorty inductive sensor will fit into a space as short as 6mm allowing it to fit in tight spaces. The SuperShorty models have the capability to install sensors directly into grippers or fast moving machinery, with frequency ratings up to 3 kHz, such as pick and place machinery - without adversely affecting their performance size or weight. All models are reverse polarity protected, short circuit protected, IP65 or IP67 rated and have a current capacity of 150 mA.

The SuperShorty is available in three housing styles: 6.5 mm smooth metal, M8 threaded stainless steel, and 6.5 mm plastic - all offering maximum flexibility in most micro sized application. The smooth or knurled plastic housing offers the user the ability to install the sensor by press fit or glue rather than mounting hardware or tapped holes. With 90-degree cable exits, the sensors can also be used in small spaces while eliminating cable bend issues. SuperShorty inductive sensors with 1.5 mm sensing range are available in both PNP and NPN and both normally open and normally closed versions. Connection options include cable out, M8 quick disconnect and pigtail versions with M8 connectors.
