Capacitive sensors with IO-Link
3rd Quarter 2017, Other technologies


The new capacitive sensors from ifm electronic stand out not only because of their excellent technical data but also with their new and unique visualisation concept. Using the PerformanceLine’s 12-LED bar display, the user can adapt the switch point to suit the application conditions – it is always in the centre of the display. The green LEDs on either side of the switch point indicate the reliability of the switch point. Deposits, material changes, etc. are displayed directly on the sensor and the user can readjust the switch point precisely as needed. An imminent error can be detected in good time and avoided, thus minimising the risk of failure or deactivation. If help is needed with the effects of process changes, this is much easier to explain and rectify with the LED display. The user can describe the LED behaviour over the phone and a support engineer can easily advise corrective measures.
