The new VeriSens PROFINET gateway from Baumer provides additional benefits through efficient VeriSens interfacing on PROFINET with visualisation and FTP communication in parallel with real-time Ethernet. The proven features of the VeriSens therefore remain available while removing load from PROFINET communication in the form of the high data packets of image processing.
PROFINET as a common real-time Ethernet standard is well suited for the integration of intelligent automation components like vision sensors. The VeriSens PROFINET gateway allows for efficient interfacing of up to four VeriSens on PROFINET. The integrated switch simplifies architecture of the typical linear network topology.
In image processing tasks visualisation is normally a must, and can now be easily established in parallel with PROFINET communication. The VeriSens Ethernet port remains available for visualisation via configurable web interface and image saving on an FTP server.
The VeriSens PROFINET gateway is supported by the established VeriSens Application Suite software, also available is the product-specific PROFINET GSD file for integration.
