BES inductive factor 1 sensors from Balluff can be used wherever different types of metals must be uniformly identified with high precision. An all-around reliable sensor for recognizing all metals, without a reduction factor at the switching distance: ferrous and non-ferrous metals, steel, brass, aluminum etc. Additionally, they are magnetic-field-resistant, making them useable in areas with a strong electromagnetic field – such as welding plants. We also offer variants with PTFE coatings for protection against welding spatter.
