Thermal flow meter with IO-Link for machine tools

The optimisation of resource consumption is becoming more and more important. ifm develops systems dedicated to the measurement and analysis of consumables. In the production of the demo factory in Aachen various metal sheets of different thicknesses are processed. Here, the SD6100 detects the quantities of protective gas during laser cutting.

LINERECORDER SENSOR 4.0 – Parameter setting software for IO-Link sensors

The LINERECORDER SENSOR is a software for clearly structured online and offline parameter setting of ifm IO-Link sensors via USB adapter. It allows consistent parameter setting and visualisation of all sensors and actuators with IO-Link interface. Some standard functions are the import of IODDs and the automatic identification of connected devices. A clear representation of the adjustable parameters allows easy definition of the device functions. The parameter sets can be stored and transferred. They can also be archived as pdf files for documentation purposes. The process values are shown graphically during set-up. This helps the user optimise the parameters to the respective application and ensures smooth operation of the plant.
