Balluff Inc. (Florence, KY) added a pneumatic cylinder sensor selection center to its Web site. The application matches one of the company’s sensors with mounting hardware. Information on more than 500 pneumatic cylinders from other manufacturers is given.

“An on-line database allows a user to find the correct sensor and associated bracket, based on the cylinder type,” says Shannon Deye, the company’s marketing communications manager. “The center makes the process of matching a sensor to a cylinder transparent. A data sheet [is printed out] and offers the user a chance to
e-mail an RFQ.”

Information is available on sensor features, such as housing and connector options, output, and operating voltage. The company’s sensor family consists of six designs and a full line of related bracketry, cables, and connectors.
