T-slot cylinder sensors with IO-Link

January 2024 Sensors & Transducers

ifm’s IO-Link sensor with two configurable hardware outputs will upgrade your machine in no time. The outputs can be configured to your application requirements. A high resolution process value with a detection range of 50 mm enables continuous monitoring and digital transmission via IO-Link. Thanks to the teach function and the Bluetooth adaptor, the installed sensor can be easily adjusted from outside the machine.

Integrated diagnostic functions such as the stroke counter (switching cycle counter), time monitoring between both end positions, and device temperature provide servicing assistance and enable maintenance to be carried out as required.

Features include:

• Only one sensor for two-end positions for short-stroke cylinders.

• End position setting aid with second LED.

• Inline quality monitoring with 50 mm detection range.

• Monitoring of critical pneumatic cylinders.

• Switching cycle counter.

• Fast fault localisation thanks to extensive diagnostic functions.
