Safe Magnetic Encoder System

The new Balluff magnetic encoder system BML-S1G SIL2 was designed especially for safety applications. It is TÜV Rheinland certified and features both an analog and a safe absolute SSI or BISS-C interface. Thanks to its long measuring range of 48 meters and high repeat accuracy (< 1 µm) the system is ideal for many different applications. It supports the functions "safe incremental value" and "safe absolute value". The sensor can be used in safety applications up to Safety Integrity Level 2 ( SIL 2) per EN 61800-5-2/ EN 62061 / IEC 61508 and Performance Level d (PL d) per EN ISO 13849-1. 

Measuring long ways exactly 

The system is the ideal choice for long measuring lengths as well as for applications that require high precision. With an accuracy of up to ± 20µm the system meets these requirements at an attractive price/performance ratio. It is simple to integrate into the existing controller. No expensive absolute interface cards or new controller hardware are necessary.  

Real time monitoring 

If the system is used together with the BML Configuration Tool, many additional parameter and diagnostics functions such as condition monitoring are available. This tool not only allows BML system parameters to be simply visualized and modified, but also enables you to read operating conditions and display the BEF* (Balluff Exactness Factor) graphically in real time. This makes condition monitoring of the measuring system possible, for example to draw conclusions about the assembly quality and/or condition of the measuring track
