IO-Link-compatible ultrasonic proximity switch for large sensing ranges

11.03.2009
The IO-Link sensor portfolio of the Siemens Industry Automation division now includes a product family of ultrasonic proximity switches. The new Simatic PXS410C sensors in M30 design are available in three converter sizes for large sensing ranges up to ten meters.

They are characterized by the high IP67 degree of protection, a significantly reduced blind zone, and a more compact design. Very little space is required at the machine.

The operating mode is convertible so that the new products can be used universally – as retroflective sensors, pushbuttons, or analog sensors. Typical applications include level detection, distance control, stack height detection, loop control, and monitoring of roller diameters.

The IO-Link compatibility of the new proximity switches offers users a number of advantages. These include, for example, simple and rapid device replacement without downtimes, with automatic reparameterization, monitoring of sensor status and temperature, dynamic parameterization of the measuring range limits, and rapid preventive diagnosis of disruptions.

To upgrade machinery flexibly and quickly, the sensor parameters can be integrated into the recipe management of PLCs (programmable logic controllers) or HMI (human-machine interface) devices. Moreover, the configuration time is also reduced, since parameters such as attenuation and filter depth can easily be set with the Port Configurator in Step 7.
