7 Features We Can Bring To Your Sensor With IO-Link
The perception status is constantly monitored, and this information is constantly received via IO-Link. This information includes perception status and stability. Accordingly, if the sensor is operating in conditions close to its operating limits, information can be obtained. For example, your sensor may start to get dirty in industrial environments. With the IO-link, this can be detected at the initial stage of contamination.
You can check the working status of your sensor via IO-Link. Cable breakage, voltage drop, receiver interference, sensor misplacement etc. situations can be diagnosed immediately. Thus, rapid maintenance, repair or replacement is carried out.
3-Sensitivity and Teaching
You can adjust the sensitivity of the sensor remotely according to threshold values. Alternatively, the teaching function can be used according to threshold values specific to the application.
4- Switching Time Setting
Output switching time can be adjusted via IO-Link. Depending on the needs of the application, output switching can be delayed or extended.
5- Temperature Measurement
Temperature directly affects the performance of the sensors. With IO-Link, the temperature of the sensors is measured continuously. Additionally, if desired, the highest temperature can be recorded and used for diagnosis and preventive maintenance.
6- Detection Number Counter
If you want IO-Link, it will act as a counter for you. You will be able to change the sensor as many times as you want by seeing how many sensors your sensor detects over IO-Link. This contributes to preventive maintenance.
7- Mode Selection
3 different modes can be selected according to the needs of the application. “Normal”, “Fast” and “Perfect.” Normal mode captures a good balance between speed and sensitivity. Speed is more prominent in “Fast” mode. In “Fine” mode, sensitivity is at the forefront.
