Miniature inductive sensors for precise position feedback of the gripper jaws
 

The inductive miniature sensors offer high-precision measurement results in the smallest housings. The sensors also provide valuable diagnostic and additional process data via the IO-Link interface. This makes it easier to solve applications and increases system availability. The high resolution of the sensors ensures excellent repeatability and low temperature drift as well as optimum process stability and accuracy.


Your benefit
  • Increased process reliability
    • Comprehensive process and diagnostic data enables reliable control and monitoring of processes.
  • Simple and fast plug & play sensor replacement
    • Find-me function for easy sensor identification.  With IO-Link 1.1, no new parameter adjustment of the sensor is necessary when replacing the sensor. Parameter server functions also enable the multiplication of parameter data.
  • Highest machine availability and predictive maintenance
    • Continuous monitoring of measurement data and evaluations thanks to the histograms of process, temperature and voltage values extracted via IO-Link.  Additional data such as operating hours, boot and switching cycles.
  • Application-specific, flexible parameter adjustment of the sensor
    • Wide range of applications due to versatile parameterization options such as measured value filters for fast or precise applications or a freely configurable switching output.
  • Simplified planning & commissioning
    • Low effort in project planning and commissioning of the plant due to individual IO-Link parameterization and teach functions.
  • Smaller number of variants due to extended functionalities
    • With various functions such as distance, frequency measurement, counter function and individually configurable switching points, these sensors can be used for various applications.
