Ultrasonic sensors provide pushbutton programming for software-free configuration
Pepperl+Fuchs (Twinsburg, OH) introduced Series IO Ultrasonic Sensors. Pushbutton programming provides fast and easy on-site sensor parameterization without requiring any software. IO-Link compatibility unlocks a series of control functions that customize the sensor for installation in the most challenging environments. These parameters can be viewed and modified on-the-fly via an IO Link controller, or via a PC. Series IO ultrasonic sensors have UL, CSA and CCC approval, and feature a completely sealed, IP67-rated housing, making them suitable for use in outdoor application environments. Additional features include two programmable switch outputs, latching mode and window functions, synchronization options and temperature compensation. They are available in switch point and analog versions, both available with 500 mm, or 2, 4 or 6 m sensing ranges. All units are 30 mm diameter by overall length of 93 mm. For the use of intelligent sensors, IO-Link offers:
- Simplified installation.
- Automated parameter setting.
- Expanded diagnostics.
