In object detection
Balluff IO-Link for object detection incorporates intelligent sensors with an extremely wide range of functional principles
- analogue fork light barriers
- RGB colour sensors
- energetic light switches for large distances
- Ultrasonic sensors
- Mechanical multiple position switches
IO-Link sensors have many advantages:
Maximum machine availability
Downtimes are significantly reduced because the parameters of a replaced IO-Link sensor are automatically written in full to the new sensor by the IO-Link Master. Commissionings, format changes or recipe changes can be processed centrally via function modules of the control unit. This saves time and minimises the potential for error.
Continuous diagnostic data for the entire process extends maintenance intervals, as systems and machines need to be maintained much less frequently thanks to automatic readjustment via IO-Link.
