The software moneo configure allows you to configure all sensors quickly and easily via a PC. You can choose between the free stand-alone version moneo configure free which represents a starting point for simple parameter setting or the chargeable moneo configure module licence, which allows unrestricted interaction with further moneo modules. A single-port master (e.g. E30390) or an Ethernet IO-Link master (e.g. AL1300) is required in addition.
For permanently installed communication in the field, the device can be used with a field master in COM mode (IO-Link operation). In addition to the hardware, ifm offers a startup package for data integration into the PLC.
To transfer data to the IT world, you can collect it e.g. via TCP-IP or MQTT using the field masters.
