Ultrasonic Sensors Offer Pushbutton Programming

Pushbutton programming built into Pepperl+Fuchs’ Series IO ultrasonic sensors facilitate on-site sensor parameterization—no software is required. IO-Link compatibility unlocks a series of control functions that customize the sensor for installation. Parameters can be viewed and modified on-the-fly via an IO-Link controller, or with a personal computer. IO-Link, based on an intelligent point-to-point connection system on the field level, enables intelligent sensing without being tied to a proprietary system. Using the pushbuttons, the sensors can be configured to use numerous modes, such as pump-up/pump-down, rising/declining analog slope and beam-width adjustments, and others. They also configure trip points, output function, output behavior, and shape of the sound cone. LEDs verify power and target status, as well as help with pushbutton programming. Available in a sealed IP67-rated housing that measure 30 mm in diameter and 93 mm in length, the devices feature two programmable switch outputs, latching-mode and window functions, synchronization options, and temperature compensation. Switch-point and analog versions both come with 500-mm or 2-/4-/6-m sensing ranges.
