2 in 1: Sensors with IO-Link and digital switching signal
- Simultaneous transmission of comprehensive process data and fast switching signals
- Permanent distance information makes mechanical changes visible at an early stage
- Diagnostic information helps to reduce downtimes
- Configurable functions increase versatility and reduce stock-keeping
Fast switching, permanent diagnostics
With these inductive sensors, the Y path, i.e. the provision of sensor information for both the analogue and digital worlds, begins in the sensor itself.
The sensor thus enables the best of both worlds - via only one connection cable: Fast switching operations can be transmitted to the controller via a switching signal, while changes in the distance between the sensor and the target, for example, can be continuously monitored and transmitted to the IT level via IO-Link.
This allows to identify maintenance requirements at an early stage and avoid expensive unplanned downtimes.
