With its recently acquired IECEx hazardous area approval rating, Balluff’s Micropulse TA12 explosion-proof linear position transducer is ready to tackle more hazardous applications. In addition to existing ATEX and North American approvals, the transducer can address even more situations where hazardous gases and/or dusts are present.
Designed for continuous feedback on hydraulically and pneumatically actuated valves for oil and gas refining, the explosion proof housing protects a non-contact linear position sensor. The magnetostrictive sensor incorporates its electronics and sensing hardware in a Rapid Replacement Module (RRM) that allows fast field repairs by the customer. Control signal interface options for the sensor , include analog voltage and current, start/stop pulse digital, synchronous serial digital, digital quadrature, and digital field buses such as Profibus and CANbus.
