The BMS sensor mounting system is said to maximize sensor usefulness on the production line by enabling users to quickly and easily position sensors at virtually any angle. Available in both plastic and metal versions, the system uses a small number of standard components to provide mounting flexibility in all three axes. Even complex configurations are said to be realized in just a few minutes. Reported to be dimensionally stable, the mounting system uses knurled pins to hold position during sensor replacement. The basic holder is said to accommodate virtually any manufacturer-specific mounting profile, and is designed to work with standard mounting extrusions and always lock firmly and symmetrically in the rail slot. Other components include knurled stand rods, cross-connectors and sensor holders for a wide variety of sensors, along with a metal-body fine adjustment unit for laser sensors. In many configurations the system not only provides a mounting function, but is said to offer mechanical protection for the sensor. A series of components such as reflector holders and adapter plates rounds out the accessory offering. Balluff, Inc.
