Our plastic and glass fibers, which are designed and tested for our fiber-based devices, are available as switches or in single-use designs. You can use them whenever you have virtually no installation space available, such as for detecting small parts, controlling part characteristics, parts positioning, counting tasks, and in robotics.
Plastic optics are used when requirements for robustness as well as temperature or chemical resistance are low. Glass fiber optics are suitable for harsh environments – even with oil mist and influence from chemicals – as well as for temperatures of over 200 °C.
Both of our plastic as well as glass fibers are characterized by their transmission accuracy and speed. Various end fittings (diameter from 2 to 8 mm, square from 5 x 4 mm to 23 x 55 mm, …) with straight or angled light emission, even bendable optic heads for plastic fibers, round out Balluff's portfolio.
