Dual-function Smart Sensor ensures productivity is maximized at optimal cost

An embedded DMS inductive Smart Sensor uses inclined-plane principles to sense the precise position of the push-rod in a pneumatic cylinder, halting travel when it is fully extended. Routine process data is transmitted to the PLC via IO-Link. The sensor also monitors temperature within the cylinder and sends a high-speed SIO alarm signal directly to the PLC if an over-temperature event is detected.

Customer benefits:

  •  High-resolution position control of pneumatic cylinder ensures accurate placement
  • Real-time process data drives routine machine-position functions
  • Dual-channel operation allows secondary monitoring of cylinder temperature
  • High-speed serial input/output (SIO) triggers rapid action before criticality occurs
