Sensors with background suppression now standard with IO-link
IO-link is the first standardized IO technology (IEC 61131-9) worldwide for communication with sensors and actuators. The powerful point-to-point communication is based on already known 3-wire sensors and actuators without having to use extra cables. IO-Link is a further development of the existing and tested connection technology for sensors and actuators (fieldbus).
The SensoPart series F 25 LED is now equipped with IO-Link as standard.
- FT 25-RA - analog sensor
- FT 25-RH - background suppression
- FT 25-RHD - background suppression greater range
- FT 25-RF sensor with background suppression (fixed switching distance)
With IO-link it is possible to read product parameters from the sensor to a higher level. These can be parameters such as measured value, switching status, signal quality or operating hours. On the basis of these values, for example, maintenance can be scheduled. The values are transmitted digitally to the PLC. Via IO-link, a password can be set so that not everyone has access to the sensor and can adjust settings accordingly. Read more about SensoPart
