Display user-friendly information and states
Our controllers and display devices show where things stand with production and where a tool is located at all times. They reliably monitor the status and point-of-use of machines and systems. Output signals from sensors are converted into visual or acoustic indicators.
Controllers evaluate the data from industrial cameras and other sensors, edit it, and send it on to the central controller. This pre-processing makes sure that only the important parameters are obtained and transmitted over the network to a central controller, which protects the entire production environment from data overload.
Our displays and SmartLight LED stack lights indicate the operating status of your machine at a glance by visualizing physical variables and states.
To reliably monitor the status and the point-of-use of machines and systems, Balluff offers SmartLight LED stack lights and SmartLight Indicators. These signal lights conveniently visualize the information you need.
The SmartLight LED stack light displays important or critical machine conditions and uses a color scale to show trends for physical variables.
Our SmartLight Indicator is a reliable display for explicit points-of-use and is used to guide the operator. It also offers numerous additional functions, like displaying the adjusting direction, cycle times of the work steps, wait times while work is being performed, machine status, or fill levels. A second version with an optical sensor is used to reliably detect hand signals.
All signal lights feature bright LEDs whose colors can be defined individually. Segment or stack light, level indication or bar graph, run light, and flexible mode are all available for covering any requirement.
An IO-Link interface provides convenient user guidance. This even lets you make changes on-the-fly. With IO-Link you simply make them from a central control location. And thanks to IO-Link you can quickly and cost-efficiently install intelligent devices using plug-and-play and link to the controller or to PC-based systems.
Displays are ideal for control cabinet installation. You can select between analog value display, axis displays, display modules and cam switches. The decimal place, the zero point and combination of inputs/outputs can be set via the function keys on the front side depending on the application.
Do you need to quickly display or change the production status and configurations of machine vision products and other sensors? Our industrial controllers are tailor-made for these tasks.
Our industrial-grade panel PCs, running Windows 10 IoT, operate various industrial components using standard input systems: keyboard and mouse or touchscreen. The 12" display lets you visualize and read all the information comfortably.
Our new SmartVision controller directly controls industrial cameras and makes the results available to the central controller over various network interfaces.
