Linear position sensors with Ethernet/IP interface
Fast, Synchronous, and Precise Position Feedback
Uniform, simple wiring, continuous diagnostics and central parameter setting via the controller are among the benefits of this linear position sensor with Ethernet/IP interface. The magnetostrictive system with Flexible Magnet Mode (FMM) allows you to work with up to 16 position magnets.
Two values can be output for each magnet: position and velocity. The sensor even automatically adapts itself to the number of magnets. This makes it easy to use in applications where a varying number of magnets is used.
The wide range of functions provides great flexibility in linear position measurement – for example in hydraulic cylinder control or level measurement.
Synchronous measurement value acquisition and data transmission with Ethernet/IP CIP sync
Fast, precise absolute position and velocity measurement with 1 μm resolution
Simple and time-saving startup thanks to defined parameter substitution and flexible application tailoring
Non-contact and wear-free, insensitive to contamination
Available in profile- and rod-style

The Manufacturers Guide to Flexible, Easy, and Fast Integration of Continuous Improvement
For companies working with manual and semi-automated assembly processes, continuous improvement is a daily topic. Error-proofing, kaizan, poke-yoke, six-sigma, or quality assurance are a way of life. Control architectures have significant impact on how a total error proofing program is implemented. Having a system that works well initially is somewhat easy, but the real test is how well it works as time goes on. IO-Link is the next generation of continuous improvement with flexible control architectures, easy fast integration, diverse inspection options, visibility and traceability.
