IO-Link compatible sensor range from Omron
Technews Industry Guide: Industrial Internet of Things & Industry 4.0, Sensors & Transducers


The IO-Link compatible sensor range from Omron currently incorporates through beam, retro-reflective and diffuse reflective photosensors, colour mark sensors, standard proximity sensors and spatter-resistant proximity sensors.

Features offered by the sensors include the ability to monitor and report their own performance and support on-the-fly reconfiguration using data transferred by the automation system.

The sensors are complemented by two IO-Link master modules, one with screwless clamp terminals for use with pre-wired sensors, the other with Smartclick connectors. Both master modules allow the connection of standard sensors, as well as the IO-Link types, making it easy to upgrade existing machines and systems.

IO-Link is an open international standard supported by more than 100 companies, including major sensor manufacturers. It provides bidirectional communication and, as well as supporting typical sensor and actuator signals, it also allows the sensors and actuators to exchange status information and operating parameters with the automation system.

Omron’s IO-Link products are part of the company’s total automation platform, which also includes support for EtherCAT and EtherNet/IP. For seamless integration, IO-Link products are included in Omron’s Sysmac Studio software environment, which provides comprehensive facilities for configuring, programming, simulating and monitoring automation systems.
