Ultrasonic sensors from ifm now feature IO-Link
15 June 2018
Ultrasonic sensors from ifm electronic first appeared on the market only last year and have been well received, so expectations are running high with the news that customers can now benefit from the advantages of IO-Link in ultrasonics, too.
Added value though IO-Link: the now well-established IO-Link standard offers many recognised benefits, from virtual teach-button setting of the switch point to secure transmission of the distance value in mm. Other useful aspects of the IO-Link inclusion cover switch-on delay and switch-off delay and diagnostics. If need be, an IO-Link sensor can easily be replaced as the transfer of parameters is automatic.
The versions with IO-Link are produced in an industry-standard M18 body, with long and short housings in both plastic and stainless steel. Five different sensing ranges cover up to a maximum of 2.2m.
