IO-Link functionality offers ‘smart’ connection
Motion and control technologies company Parker Hannifin has launched the SCPSi pressure sensor with IO-Link functionality to meet customer demand in more and more smart industrial environments.
The sensor, which has an optimised, compact design, is said to enable “particularly simple and fast commissioning and parameterisation, thanks to the IO-Link interface. This means that data is available more quickly and in a standardised form for use, for example, in an ERP system. This ultimately leads to cost savings and increased efficiency”.
With the help of the IO-Link technology, data is transmitted interference-free, adds Parker Hannifin. The data transmission is based on a 24V signal, which is completely digital. “The signal transmission is very safe against external influences. Inaccuracies in measurements are thus a thing of the past.”
With the IO-Link technology, a wide variety of values can be measured. This gives the user more flexibility and the possibility of simple integration into existing systems. Condition monitoring applications can therefore be easily designed, it is further stated.
Remote diagnostics are also possible via the IO-Link sensor.
