IO-Link offers a flexible and standardized communication platform for connecting sensors and actuators in industrial automation systems. Its ease of use, configurability, and diagnostic capabilities make it a popular choice for modern industrial applications.
Standard inductive proximity sensors are used across the automation industry for metal detection applications and are generally reliable in these operations. But issues arise when switching from steel to other metals like copper, brass, or aluminum.
In standard Industrial applications, capacitive sensors detect plastics and liquids, and although they can also detect just about anything else, there are better alternatives keeping them from becoming the “one sensor to sense it all.”
Critical assets are the lifeblood of the manufacturing plant. They are the devices, machines, and systems that when broken down or not performing to expected standards, can cause downtimes and production or quality losses resulting in rejects.
