Balluff Expands EX Intrinsically Safe Sensors

Balluff’s inductive portfolio delivers a range of intrinsically safe sensors for use in explosion protected areas. Each sensor is approved for all explosive zones and offers reliable detection and position measurement when hazardous materials, such as explosive gas, dust, or flammable liquids, are present.

Designed specifically to meet the demands of applications in hazardous atmospheres, each sensor works on such a low current and voltage that it cannot ignite flammable material present in explosive zones. The sensors, combined with Balluff isolating amplifiers, form an intrinsically safe unit. Compact versions are also available that do not require an additional amplifier while still providing the necessary safety.


  • Approved for ATEX zones 0, 1, and 2, and zones 20, 21, and 22
  • Range of intrinsically safe sensors from a single source
  • M12, M18, and M30 form factors
  • Installation and replacement using standardized connections
