A copper conductor is introduced

The start of measurement is

This current generates a circular
magnetic field which rotates

The mechanical wave is converted
to an electrical signal by the signal
converter. The propagation time of
the mechanical wave is determined
by the position of the permanent
magnet and can be determined
to resolutions down to 1 μm.

Introduction
INTRO
i
Obtaining accurate position feedback is
a critical part of many automation
processes. Without accurate, reliable
measurement feedback, quality and
production suffer. The Micropulse® line
of linear transducers has been providing
a high level of linear measurement for

Compared with traditional position
feedback systems, Balluff transducers
offer the following advantages:
– Insensitive to shock, vibration,
temperature swings, contamination,
ambient moisture and electrical
noise
– Wear and maintenance free, thanks
to non-contact principle of
operation
– Absolute output signal, even after
voltage interruption; no re-homing
of the machine necessary

anywhere in between
– Interfaces to discrete I/O instead of more costly
analog inputs
– Upgrade from end-of-stroke sensors
– Eliminate multiple external proximity sensors,
brackets, targets, cables, and connection blocks
– Eliminate motion controller: run speed/position
ramping profiles with direct-input proportional valve
– Installs just like a traditional MDT in probe-ready
steel-walled cylinders
– Auto-Tuning™ circuitry allows use of Balluff or
competitors’ magnets
– Two easy programming options:
local, with handy
programming tool; or remote, using teach-in
connections

Rapid Replacement Module Option
Balluff’s new Rapid Replacement Module (RRM) option allows quick
field replacement without removing the pressure tube from the
cylinder, making change-outs easy and cutting equipment downtime.
Advantages of the RRM include:
– No hydraulic oil spillage and no need for environmental
containment
– No danger from hot oil spilling onto repair personnel
– No need to bleed air from hydraulic system after replacement
– No danger of dirt entering open hydraulic port
– 100% exchange of sensor package eliminates guesswork
– Dimensionally identical to standard Balluff Z style for equivalent
output type
– Backward-compatible with existing standard Balluff Z style
pressure tubes*
– Available for all output types except Profibus, CANopen, and
ProSet4
The RRM can be installed in your maintenance program in a variety
of ways:
– For new installations, you can order optional ZM construction,
which includes a Balluff pressure tube along with a RRM preinstalled. To change out this type, you simply remove two
housing screws, replace the RRM, re-tighten the two housing
screws – and you’re done.
– For new installations, you can also order standard Z
construction, which includes a complete standard transducer.
You can still do field swaps on this type by removing the
standard electronics head and internal waveguide element as
two separate components, then replacing both with a single
RRM unit.
– If you already have an installed base of standard Balluff Z
transducers, you can also change them out quickly with the
RRM as described above. The RRM easily retrofits into existing
Balluff pressure tubes once the old electronics and waveguide
element have been removed.*
– Keep spare RRM units on hand to maintain any Balluff ZM or Z
construction transducer.
* Synchronized SSI RRM is not backward-compatible to standard pressure
tubes used on non-synchronized SSI units. Synchronized SSI RRM only
fits pressure tube supplied with complete synchronized SSI units.

Installation
The BTL Micropulse transducer is
provided with a ¾” x 16-UNF
(optional M18 × 1.5) mounting
thread. We recommend mounting
into non-magnetizable materials.
If magnetizable materials are
used, the installation must be
carried out as shown in the
drawings at right. Sealing is at
the flange mounting surface,
using the supplied O-ring.

The position is output as an analog value
which rises. This is done with high
precision and repeatability within the
measuring area designated as the
nominal stroke length. If there is no
magnet within the measuring area, an
error signal is output. At the rod end is a
damping zone. When a magnet is in this
zone the output is spurious. The electrical
connection between the transducer, the
controller and the power supply is
accomplished using a cable or pigtail.

P510 interface
Compatible with Balluff BTA
processors, controllers, and modules
from various manufacturers, including
Siemens, B & R, Bosch, Phoenix
Contact, Mitsubishi, Sigmatek, Parker,
Esitron, WAGO, AB and others.
Reliable signal transmission even over
cable lengths of up to 500m between
the BTA processor and the transducer
is assured by the especially noiseimmune RS485 differential drivers and
receivers. Noise signals are effectively
suppressed.
Electrical Options
P510 universal for rising and
falling edge evaluation
As a consequence of different control
philosophies, digital pulse interfaces
are available in two different types
depending on the controller.
The difference is in which edge is used
for processing. In the “P-interface” the
falling edges are used for timing and in
the “M-interface” the rising edges.
To reduce the number of different
models to a minimum, the “P510interface” was created as a universal
pulse interface which combines both
functions.
The reference point for the
propagation time measurement is the
“Start” pulse.

Companies who develop their own

use the Balluff digitizing chip to
implement a highly accurate P-type

Installation Guidelines
Micropulse AR style transducers are designed for integration in
hydraulic cylinders. The transducer is mechanically supported at
the housing. Three M5 set screws spaced at 120 °C hold the
transducer, which fits into a Ø48 H8 hole.
Sealing is accomplished using the supplied O-ring and support
ring. The magnet ring, which is integrated into the piston, marks
the actual position of the piston as it moves without contact.
The metal surrounding of the cylinder replaces the needed cable shield when the BTL AR...LA, cable out pigtail version is
installed in the cylinder. The pigtail version cannot be used without additional EMC protection (shield).

Introduction
Explosion Proof
Flame Proof
In the petrochemical and process
industries, reliability and uptime are
critical. Component failure must be a rare
event, but when it does occur,
replacements should be fast and easy.
Micropulse non-contact
magnetostrictive technology offers
superior long-term reliability over
competing contact sensors such as
linear or rotary potentiometers.
Balluff’s cutting-edge explosion proof
housing design incorporates a Rapid
Replacement Module to get you up and
running quickly in the unlikely event
replacement is ever necessary. There is
no need to break the hydraulic seal to
remove the entire unit, because the
internal electronics and sensing element
can be replaced as an assembly in just a
matter of minutes. Held in by two
retaining screws, the Rapid Replacement
Module is simple to remove and reinstall, giving you confidence and peace
of mind.
In today’s global economy and worldwide scope of industrial operations,

Autotuning compensates for changes in temperature, providing a more stable
signal over a wide temperature range, and reducing maintenance and repair
costs.
Patented auto-tuning electronics help reduce maintenance and repair costs.
Rapid Replacement Module
The Rapid Replacement Module allows quick replacement without having to remove the pressure tube from the cylinder – no need to de-pressurize the system.
Decreases downtime – get up and running in minutes, not hours.
Configurable
Analog-output versions offer 100% scalable stroke range.
PWM versions feature easy DIP-switch configuration for recirculation count and
interrogation method.

Installation Guidelines
& Wiring
Installing in Locations Classified as Zone 0 Under ATEX Guidelines
Only the rod section of the transducer may extend into Zone 0. To ensure safe
isolation between Zone 0 and Zone 1, the relevant safety regulations for
potentially explosive atmospheres must be strictly adhered to.
When using a float magnet, it is necessary that a static discharge between the
transducer rod and the inner portion of the float be prevented. The floats on
page 61 are designed so that, in normal operation, the float is tilted, thereby
ensuring mechanical contact between the transducer rod and the float wall.
Do not use other types of floats or attempt to disable this design feature.

The BTL5-P-3800-2
magnet can be used with a
vertical offset from the
upper surface of the
transducer body of
0...4 mm, and the
BTL5-P-5500-2 permits a
distance of 5...15 mm. The
BTL5-P-4500-1 is an
electromagnet and requires
a supply voltage of 24 V,
which can be turned on and
off for selective activation.
This allows multiplex
operation with multiple
magnets on a single
transducer, since only one
magnet is active at a time.

R Style
Introduction
R Low-Profile Style
Ultra-low Profile
The low-profile “R” housing is designed
to be mechanically compatible with
legacy linear potentiometers. The
centerline at the control rod is the same
vertical location as the rod on many
popular “pots.” However, the R style
provides long-life, non-contact
magnetostrictive technology that will
outlast any wear-prone linear
potentiometer.
Features:
Applications:
– Low profile for space critical
applications
– Pneumatic slides
– Compatible with plunger type linear
potentiometers
– Stamping presses
– Cable out or quick disconnect
– Stroke Length 2” – 142”
– Floating or captive magnet
– Outputs – Digital start/stop, Pulse
Width Modulated PWM, Analog

Autotuning Circuitry
Patented Autotuning circuitry in Balluff Micropulse®
transducers automatically compensates for changes in the
strength of the magnetostrictive return signal.
Automatically compensates for changes in temperature,
providing a more stable signal over a wide temperature
range.
For Micropulse profile-style transducers using a floating
magnet configuration, Autotuning ensures that the return
signal remains stable, even if the distance from magnet to
transducer varies.

Floating Magnets
Profile Series
Balluff magnets are available
in captive or floating styles.
All BTL5 magnets shown
here can be used on any
Balluff Micropulse transducer.
Maximum resolution and
repeatability are achieved
using BTL5-F/M/N-2814-1S
captive magnets on page
86-87.
The BTL5-P-3800-2 magnet
can be used with a vertical
offset from the upper surface
of the transducer body of
0...4 mm, and the
BTL5-P-5500-2 permits a
distance of 5...15 mm. The
BTL5-P-4500-1 is an
electromagnet and requires a
supply voltage of 24 V, which
can be turned on and off for
selective activation. This
allows multiplex operation
with multiple magnets on a
single transducer, since only
one magnet is active at a
time.

Introduction
Micropulse AT
Magnetostrictive
Technology at a
Potentiometer Price
Accurate Linear Position
Measurement
The Micropulse® AT is a superior
alternative to traditional low-cost linear
feedback devices such as linear
potentiometers (pots). Balluff designed
the Micropulse AT in a modular fashion
to simplify manufacturing and reduce
component costs to be competitive
with these devices.
The main advantage of the
Micropulse AT is the non-contact,
wear-free magnetostrictive sensing
principle. Linear potentiometers, by
contrast, are electro-mechanical
devices that utilize a moving wiper
contact riding along a resistive
element. Both the wiper contact and
the resistive element are subject to
wear from repeated operation and
continuous machine vibration.
Abrasive contaminants are able to
enter the potentiometer housing
through the mechanical seals, further
accelerating wear – leading to erratic
position signals.
With no moving parts, the
Micropulse AT is impervious to
environmental contamination such as
dust and grit. It is also shock and
vibration rated for use in demanding
industrial applications. The convenient
M12 connector assures easy
installation and quick replacement
without the need to remove and
reinstall hardwired cabling.
Wear-Free
Inexpensive
Easy to Order
Easy to Hook Up
The round housing of the Micropulse AT
allows the unit to be rotated to sense
the position magnet in multiple
directions, enhancing installation
flexibility. The position magnet is a
floating design, meaning no mechanical
linkage is required, saving cost and
reducing installation complexity. Linkage
is eliminated as a source of backlash
error. No mechanical linkage also
eliminates over-stroking as a potential
source of sensor breakage and
production downtime.
– Magnetostrictive sensing principle
– Floating target magnet
– Absolute position output
– Resolution 10 microns
– 0-10 V analog output
– Start/stop digital output
Advantages
– Non-contact, wear-free, unlimited
cycles
– No mechanical linkage required;
saves space
– Correct position reading on powerup without re-homing
– Precise position indication
– Universal controller compatibility

Features
Micropulse ATvantage offers twomagnet operation with two analog
outputs that are user-programmable
for stroke length and rising 0-10 V or
falling 10-0 V signals. The second
output can also be user-configured for
differential mode to output a 0-10 V
signal that is proportional to the
difference in position between Magnet
A and Magnet B.

Digital Pulse Interface P11_
Profile Series A1
P110-Interface
Compatible with various OEM controls,
e.g., Siemens, Schleicher, B & R, Bosch,
Mitsubishi, Schiele, Parker, Esitron,
WAGO, etc.
Reliable signal transmission, even over
cable lengths up to 500 m between BTL
and controller, is assured by the
especially noise-immune RS422
differential drivers and receivers. Noise
signals are effectively suppressed.
P110 Rising/Falling in a Single
Interface
Based on differing philosophies, two
controller-specific interfaces have been
established for the digital pulse
versions. The difference lies in how the
edges are processed.
In the "P" interface the falling edges and
in the "M" interface the rising edges are
processed.
To reduce the amount of part numbers,
the "P110 interface" has been
developed which combines both
functions.
The reference point for the propagation
time measurement is the "Start" pulse.
P111 Interface
Cost savings using DPI/IP for startup and installation
DPI/IP is a protocol for direct data
interchange between a controller and
transducer. The signal lines are used to
send additional information such as
manufacturer, stroke length and
waveguide gradient. This allows startup or replacement of a transducer
without having to make manual changes
in the controller parameters.
With the P110 start/stop digital output,
both the rising and the falling edges of
the signal are precisely controlled,
allowing the flexibility to match the
controller interface requirements with a
single part number.

Introduction
Advanced, multi-function tracking
capability in one transducer
The Balluff Micropulse® ATvantage
starts with all the advantages of the
Micropulse AT, and adds two-magnet
operation to detect two independent
machine motions or speeds at the same
time in the same installation. The added
ability to track single stroke/dual motion
machine functions (such as clamp/eject
on a plastic injection molding machine)
allows a single transducer to perform
the same function as two separate
transducers.
– 100% adjustable analog signal
– LED indicator for programming
assistance
Senses two motions
at the same time!
– Separate teach-in for all zero and
span points
100% Field-Scalable
– Selectable dual position or single
position plus differential
measurement modes
Track two motions with one system
– The ATvantage senses two motions
at the same time
– Two magnets provide two user
programmable analog outputs for
stroke length and rising 0-10 V or
falling 10-0 V signals – set your zero
and span points anywhere between
– Significant cost reduction with one
transducer taking the place of two
Higher performance, longer life,
lower cost
– With no moving parts, the
Micropulse AT’s non-contact
magnetostrictive sensing
technology is far superior to wear
prone electro-mechanical contact
designs such as potentiometers
– Impervious to dust, grit, shock, and
vibration and rated for use in a wide
variety of industrial applications
From optional to standard:
an industry example
Micropulse transducers have long
been standard in the plastics
machinery industry on high-precision
machines and offered on standard
machines as a non-contact option to
potentiometric systems.
The Micropulse AT and ATvantage
have been designed in cooperation
with development engineers from the
plastics machinery industry. The AT
family is competitively priced and
meets all the technical demands of
the industry.

With the introduction of Micropulse
AT transducers, downtimes can be
reduced to a minimum – not just on
high-end specialty machines, but on
standard production models as well.

Using the ATvantage
Teach-in
Two moving members on a machine
often travel in the same direction. Each
axis normally requires a separate
feedback sensor.
With the Micropulse AT you can now
sense both movements at the same time
with just one transducer having two
analog outputs.
The position of the respective null and
end points can be set individually using
two programmable inputs.
The two ranges may be adjacent, may
overlap, and can be programmed for a
rising or falling output signal. The
transducer can be operated using one
or two magnets.
If one magnet leaves the programmed
range or if only one is present, the
position is indicated on Output 1.
Output 2 then indicates an error value.
Used for changing the factory set null
and end point with a new null and end
point. First the magnet must be
brought to the new null point and then
to the new end position, and the
respective values stored by pressing
the button.

Introduction
Micropulse BIW
Non-Contact Performance, Standard Form
Factor, Linear Potentiometer Price
The Micropulse BIW uses patented pulsed-inductive measurement technology
to provide 0-10 Vdc or 4-20 mA position feedback in a form factor identical
to many wear-prone resistive linear potentiometers. Unlike linear
potentiometers, the BIW’s non-contact technology assures
years of trouble free operation.
Features:
– Plunger-style form factor provides
for drop-in replacement of linear
potentiometers
Applications:
The Micropulse BIW is ideal for
applications such as:
– Plastic injection molding machinery
– Non-Contact Sensing Technology
– Packaging machinery
– No External Electronics
– Hydraulic and pneumatic motion
bases / flight simulators
– Analog Outputs:
– 0-10 Vdc / 10-0 Vdc
– 4-20mA / 20-4 mA
Principle of Operation
The BIW inductive linear position transducer is based on a new, patented
principle of operation which detects the measured position without contact.
The BIW transducer contains a sender/ receiver element and an oscillator
protected by an extruded aluminum housing.
The oscillator is attached to a sliding rod which is in turn attached to the moving
member of the machine or equipment. The oscillator is excited by the sender
component at a sampling rate of 32 kHz and couples the current position signal
into the receiver element. The position is immediately available on the output as
an absolute analog value.
The direction of the output signal – rising or falling – can be determined by how
the output slope connections are made.

Analog Interface Modules and
Digital Displays
This section contains digital displays and analog interface modules to be used with
Micropulse transducers.
Analog Interface Module
The versatile BTM module converts a
START/STOP digital pulse signal from
a Micropulse transducer into userscalable analog position and/or
velocity information. In addition, the
BTM module can be used to provide a
position signal from up to 4 magnets
on a single Micropulse transducer.
Since the conversion from digital signal
into analog signal takes place in the
close proximity to the analog input
device, a high degree of signal noise
immunity can be achieved.
Digital Displays
Ranging from simple, low cost
displays to allow visual position
monitoring up to full-featured displays
with programmable setpoints and
serial communication capabilities,
Balluff offers a display product to meet
any application requirement.
Digital Interface Module
The BTM-H1 module converts a
START/STOP digital pulse signal from
a Micropulse transducer into parallel
digital outputs (up to 23-bits,
depending on transducer length).
The output data format is userselectable binary, BCD, or Gray code.
The BTM-H module also provides a
24-bit Synchronous Serial Interface
(SSI) signal. User-selectable
resolutions, and a super-fast update
rate make the BTM-H1 a highperformance interface solution.

Terminology and Testing
Resolution
The smallest increment of position change
that can be detected by the transducer.
The resolution of Micropulse transducers
depends on the output type chosen.
Digital Pulse Output
(all housings)
For digital pulse-output systems (i.e. Start/
Stop or PWM) resolution is determined by
the clock frequency of the customer
interface which measures the time interval
between the Start pulse and the Stop
pulse (or the rising and falling edges of the
PWM signal). Resolution can be
determined as follows:
Resolution (in inches) =
1 ÷ (Gradient x Clock Frequency)
The gradient value is printed on the label
of each transducer and is expressed in
microseconds per inch (μsec/inch).
The Clock Frequency is the frequency of
the counter in the customer supplied
interface and is usually expressed in
megahertz (MHz).
Example - assuming a gradient value of
9.000 μs/inch and a clock frequency of
56 MHz
Temperature Coefficient
Expressed as ppm/°C or °F, TC is
the degree to which the output
signal (and therefore the indicated
position) is affected by ambient
temperature changes.
Non-Linearity
The degree to which the output
value from the Micropulse transducer
system is not perfectly proportional
to travel distance. Standard
transducers show a non-linearity of
max. ±0.02% full scale. Example: a
24-inch stroke BTL5 with analog
output may output a position value
which is 0.0048" greater or less than
the true, absolute position. This
value is repeatable, however, to
within 0.0002" (see “resolution” and
“repeatability”). For higher accuracy
requirements, Micropulse
transducers with Synchronous Serial
Interface (SSI) can be used.
Hysteresis
The difference in indicated position
when the same point is reached from
two different directions. Repeatability
refers to travel from one direction
only, hysteresis from two directions.
Resolution (in inches)
= 1 ÷ (9 x 56)
= 1 ÷ 504
= 0.00198”
Digital Serial Systems (SSI, Canbus,
etc.)
Resolution is a defined value, stated in
inches.
Digitally-Derived Analog (Z housing,
rod-style only)
Output resolution is expressed as 16-bits.
The digital position information is
converted into an analog signal internally
through a digital-to-analog converter.
True Analog (all other housing styles)
The analog output is derived without using
a digital-to-analog converter. Resolution
for this type of system is virtually infinite.
Attainable resolution is determined
primarily by electrical noise inherent to the
application, and input resolution of the
control system.
www.balluff.com
Repeatability
The degree to which the indicated
position point B as represented by
the output value is reproduced when
moving in one direction from point A
and back to point B. In the case of a
BTL5 system, position repeat
accuracy is always the same as the
stated resolution + hysteresis.
Dead Zone
The end of the Micropulse
transducer rod, from end of stroke to
the end of the rod. This is usually the
last 2.3 inches of the rod. If the
magnet enters the dead zone the
output will be unpredictable.
Null Space
The distance from the head of the
transducer to the start of the
electrical stroke.
Null Position
The position of the magnet on the
transducer rod which reads a zero or
minimum output.
Stroke
The active electrical portion or the
sensing portion of the Micropulse
transducer.
Analog
The output of the transducer is an
analog voltage
(0 to 10 Vdc, -10 to +10 Vdc,
or -5 to 5 Vdc) or an analog current
(0 to 20 mA, 4-20 mA) and is
proportional to the position of the
magnet.
Digital Pulse Output
The output of the
transducer is a digital Start/Stop
pulse or a Pulse Width Modulated
(PWM) signal. Magnet position is
directly proportional to the time
interval between the Start pulse and
the Stop pulse (or the rising and
falling edges of the PWM signal). An
external counter is required to
measure this time interval.
A wide variety of processor cards,
PLC plug-in cards, and stand-alone
controllers designed around this
interface are available.
Digital Serial Output
The output of the transducer is in the
form of a serial data word or string in
SSI (binary or Gray code) or CANbus
format.

Output Signals
Analog voltage output
Analog current output
Pulse interface
The output voltage is
directly proportional to the
position of the magnet along
the waveguide.
The output signal is directly
proportional to the magnet
position along the
waveguide. Analog current
interfaces of 0...20 mA and
4...20 mA are standard in
numerous applications and in
many industries. Current
interfaces are significantly
less sensitive to induced
noise than are analog voltage
interfaces. A 500 Ohm
resistor can be used to easily
convert the 0..20 mA signal
into a voltage of 0...10 V. The
4...20 mA signal provides a
simple form of cable break
monitoring, since even at the
nullpoint of the stroke a
current of 4 mA must flow.
Micropulse transducers with
current output are available
with increasing or decreasing
signals.
The time between an
interrogation and the reply
signal is directly proportional
to the position of the magnet
along the waveguide. These
pulses are transmitted using
RS485/422 differential line
drivers, guaranteeing noisefree signal transmission over
distances of up to 500 m
(1640 ft.). The great
advantage of these interfaces
is the noise-immune signal
transmission with a simple
and economical interface.
Interfaces with tristate
outputs allow multiplexing of
several Micropulse
transducers. Appropriate
control cards are available.
The most important
parameter for analog outputs
is the refresh rate and the
ripple of the output signal.
Many transducers on the
market attain the specified
values for output ripple only
by means of low-pass
filtering. This always carries
with it an undesirable time
delay of the output signal.
Micropulse transducers attain
the specified signal quality
without extensive low-pass
filters, instead using
improved circuit design. This
means fast update times with
low levels of ripple and noise
on the output signal.
Micropulse transducers with
voltage output have 2
outputs, one increasing and
one decreasing.
Available versions include:
0...10 V (10...0 V)
-10...10 V (10...-10 V) and
-5...5 V (5 V...-5 V)
124
SSI synchronous serial
interface
The position of the magnet
along the waveguide is sent
to the control serially in the
form of a data word.
Micropulse transducers with
SSI interface can be
connected directly to
controls or closed-loop
control cards with SSI
interfaces designed for
absolute encoders. The data
transmission from the sensor
to the control is synchronized
by means of a clock pulse
from the control. Depending
on the required resolution,
transducers with 24 or 25-bit
data words are available. The
maximum non-linearity of the
SSI Micropulse transducer of
±30 μm over the entire
stroke, the update frequency
of 2 kHz and a resolution of
5 μm make the SSI
Micropulse transducers an
ideal feedback sensor, even
in the most demanding
applications.

CANopen
PROFIBUS
Quadrature
DeviceNet™
The position of the magnet
along the waveguide is sent
over the CAN-Bus to the
control in so-called Process
Data Objects, PDOs.
Micropulse transducers work
with standard CANopen
protocols per CiA DS 301
and with the standard device
profile per DS 406. CANopen
offers greater flexibility
because of the large number
of configuration options for
the transducer. For example,
the resolution is
programmable for 5, 10, 20
or 100 μm, depending on
your application. Or you can
select whether only position
or also velocity information
shall be sent to your control;
cyclically, or on-demand. And
there's more: Up to 4 socalled software cams can be
defined in the active stroke
range. Each time the status
of one of these cams
changes, high-priority
Emergency messages are
sent to the control (check
factory for availability).
This interface provides an
efficient connection to
machines using Profibus.
Features of this interface
include:
The quadrature output
interfaces directly to standard
encoder inputs (90° out of
phase, A & B). This
configuration gives you more
interface options for
connecting to motion based
systems. Operating modes
can be either free-running or
synchronous (switch
selectable) depending on the
control system's
requirements.
DeviceNet is a manufacturerindependent, open standard
fieldbus used to interconnect
control devices and sensors
for data exchange. It uses

HALT – High Accelerated Lifetime Test –
Highest function security over years
The result is linear displacement
systems and sensors of the highest
quality and reliability which will continue
to perform with the same safety and
precision for years to come. Their use
increases equipment up time, prevents
service and repair costs and achieves
significantly greater efficiency.
Rapid temperature cycles from –100 °C
to +200 °C and vibration loads
between 10 and 50 g can simulate
aging of a sensor. Using this procedure
the products are tested for their
specifications to determine the
reliability, load capacity and life
expectancy of the sensor.
The sample is intentionally destroyed so
that we can immediately improve the
first component to fail. In the HALT
system both sensors and transducers
can be tested.

Tests and checks during the development process
improve the product and give protection against
“surprises” in service.
Objective: Simulate the mechanical loads on a product
over its working life. Balluff products are often fitted in
machines when mechanical vibrations and impacts occur.
For reliable operation they must be designed to be immune to vibration and shock. In the Balluff test laboratory all
products are therefore tested before series release for
their mechanical stability.
