Sensors are technical components, the physical or chemical properties such as: can temperature, light, humidity, pressure and the material nature of its environment collect qualitative or quantitative. These variables are measured by physical or chemical effects, and converted into electrical signals. For the measurement technique is used in DIN 1319-1, the term transducer measurements.

Sensors can be classified according to size and production technology as well as on the use and purpose. A distinction is sensors according to their mode of action during the forming of the sizes in passive and active sensors.

In the art sensors in automated processes play an important role as signal transducer. Be covered by them values ​​or states, usually electrically-amplified electronically, in the corresponding control processes, which triggers the appropriate action. In recent years, the subsequent signal processing is performed increasingly in the sensor. Such sensors include a microprocessor or a micro-system and have intelligence, so they are also known as a smart sensor.

Balluff sensors

The Balluff GmbH develops, manufactures and markets a wide range of sensors for factory automation. Balluff Sensors Worldwide in mechanical engineering and automobile production are used. The Balluff product range includes electro-mechanical limit switches, inductive proximity sensors, electro-mechanical switching mechanisms, optoelectronic sensors, linear and rotary displacement transducers, inductive identification systems and capable sensors.


Bernstein sensors

Inductive sensors

Bernstein inductive sensors are used for controlling, regulating, automating, positioning and monitoring of workflows. An inductive proximity sensor basically consists of four functional groups: a coil, an oscillator, a threshold switch and a switching amplifier with short circuit protection.

Capacitive Sensors

Capacitive proximity sensors detect conductive and nonconductive materials, which can be in solid or liquid state. They are monitoring the level measurement in tanks, the content test for filling and packaging systems, the detection, positioning, and counting of objects, for example, to sequence control, conveyor belts and roller.

Magnetic sensors

Bernstein offers a further addition to the electro-mechanical solenoid switch range electronic versions according to the Hall and magnetoresistance principle. Electromechanical and electronic magnetic switches have special characteristics that permit optimal use in the environmental conditions for them.

The electronic versions are characterized by improved mechanical properties (extreme insensitivity to vibration, shock or impact) and are completely free from wear. The "classic" electromechanical magnetic switches through the use of a single "active" component (Reed contact) and offer extremely reliable and low cost by Allstromtauglichkeit universal application.


In the construction industry, agricultural machinery, commercial equipment and industrial trucks are increasingly tilt switch and tilt sensors. With inclination sensors, position data are recorded as, for example, tilt and evaluated via an analog output.

Opto Sensors

The opto-electronic sensors from Bernstein are fundamentally different in the three different function or operation modes:

  • Through-beam
  • Retroreflective
  • Diffuse reflectance.

The sensors are used in the EN 60947-5-2 referred to as "photo-electric proximity switches" and are CE compliant. The use of the system depends initially on the application and all associated boundary conditions.

Opto-Electrical safety components

Recklessness and innocence are human - all too human. Therefore, protection of facilities Bernstein offer reliable protection of operating personnel from hazardous machinery products in production environments. Best
Example, the non-contact safety light curtains and multiple light beam safety light curtains. This secure barrier-free entrances, which are essential for the efficient production process.

Inductive sensors

For a safe, non-contact detection of metallic objects up to a distance of 100 mm, the inductive sensors, the right technical and economic solution. In all areas of automation technology, the inductive sensors are used by millions. The combinations of designs and electrical performance characteristics are unlimited.

Capacitive Sensors

Capacitive sensors detect metal objects in addition to almost all other materials and are used in many applications, such as used for the direct liquid level or flow monitoring,

  • Capacitive sensors in cylindrical M12, M18, M30 in plastic or stainless steel cylinder design
  • Capacitive sensors square, with only 5 mm in height or up to size (80 mmx 80 mm x 40 mm) and 40 mm sensing range
  • Approval for hazardous areas

Magnetic sensors

The product range includes magnetic sensors on the M12'er size for standard applications to capture magnet. We also offer a non-contact solution with IP67 protection for piston position detection in steel cylinders in which no hole in the cylinder is necessary.

Ultrasonic sensors

In all applications where environmental impacts affecting such as dust, smoke or vapor sensors, ultrasonic sensors provide the best solution for non-contact position and distance measurement dar. objects made of various materials can be detected regardless of shape and color of a millimeter. It uses the ultrasonic sensor very high frequency, as for the human's audible stimulus information carrier.The duration of the sound between the ultrasonic sensor and the object is a measure of the distance or position. Particularly in the areas of wood and furniture industry, the construction industry, but also on agricultural machinery, construction machinery or level control applications in ultrasonic sensors your reliability and accuracy have been repeatedly demonstrated.

          Good to know

          schaltbau1Snap switches are switches with a transition mechanism that allows for extremely fast switching, virtually independent of the activation period. Thus, the shift points are accurately reproduced and the arc is better deleted.

          snap switches are designed for industrial applications that place high demands on the reliability of components and systems. Enables you to safely and precisely control both flows and loads. Depending on the model, up to 10 million times mechanical snap system and the electrical contact system are separate in many series: The mechanical properties of the snap-spring system are not affected by the resulting heat flow. in contrast to the simple interruption.
