The interface connects sensors with IO-Link capability to a PC and enables parameter setting of sensors, reading of the current parameter setting, of the current measured values and further process values. The LINERECORDER SENSOR operating software is used for set-up, parameter setting and process data exchange.
The memory plug is used where sensor data is to be copied or stored. This could for instance be the case when a defective unit needs to be replaced or several sensors with the same parameter settings are installed.
The memory plug reads and stores the data from a connected IO-Link sensor. To do so, the memory plug is inserted in the supply and switching output cable of a device. During power-on or when connecting a device to the supplied memory plug, the data exchange is automatically carried out.
If the user then connects a sensor of the same type with factory settings, the data record stored on the memory plug will be copied onto the new sensor.
The use of the memory plug saves time that would otherwise be needed for re-programming the sensor. Moreover, by copying the data, errors during re-parameterisation are avoided.
