SuperShorty Inductive Sensor

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

TheSuperShorty is available in three housing styles: 6.5 mm smooth metal, M8threaded stainless steel, and 6.5 mm plastic - all offering maximum flexibilityin most micro sized application. The smooth or knurled plastic housingoffers the user the ability to install the sensor by press fit or glue ratherthan mounting hardware or tapped holes. With 90-degree cable exits, thesensors can also be used in small spaces while eliminating cable bend issues. SuperShortyinductive sensors with 1.5 mm sensing range are available in both PNP and NPNand both normally open and normally closed versions. Connection optionsinclude cable out, M8 quick disconnect and pigtail versions with M8 connectors.
