IO-Link - provision of the distance value via IO-Link


Measuring photoelectric sensors

Measuring photoelectric sensors from ifm distinguish themselves with their high precision. The distance value is provided to the nearest millimetre similar to analogue sensors. The user can use the information about the object's presence for process control but also the object's distance to the measuring point.

Thanks to the IO-Link technology, the switch points of the sensors can be set conveniently via software, which accelerates set-up. Besides, all versions feature further setting options, such as light-on/dark-on mode or switch-on and switch-off delay. The resulting high versatility reduces the number of required sensors, consequently reducing inventory costs.
