Balluff has introduced Face Savers — a game-changing accessory to extend sensor life. The new-to-market face saver can be added to a flush mount sensor to increase the life of the sensor by protecting it from impact damage due to over travel and hostile application environments.
“Face Savers can almost be considered a ‘Machine Up-Time Insurance Policy’ for flush mount style inductive proximity sensors on the plant floor. It’s a simple concept with phenomenal results,” said Dave Bird, welding and stamping industry manager.
Balluff’s face savers are easy to install by simply screwing the protective device on the end of the sensor housing and lining it up the with the sensor’s sensing face. The beveled edge allows for adjustments to the placement of the face saver and the set screw can lock the face saver in place. Adding a face saver to a flush mount sensor can protect the sensor from impact damage and prolong its life — reducing downtime and decreasing maintenance needs.
