Balluff IO-Link for object detection incorporates intelligent sensors with an extremely wide range of functional principles

  • Photoelectric sensors
    – 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.

Demand-oriented maintenance

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.
