MTS Sensors: Linear Sensors Conform with Latest ODVA EtherNet/IP Standards

Nov. 27, 2015
The R-Series now conforms with the latest version of the EtherNet/IP communication protocol with device-level ring (DLR) compatibility.

The sensors, recently recertified against the ODVA EtherNet/IP Composite Conformance Test revision CT12, make possible interfacing with a wider array of EtherNet/IP compliant hardware across numerous industry sectors. These enhanced sensors are better equipped for industrial networking implementations than ever before. Their device-level ring (DLR) capability permits direct connection to a ring topology without the inconvenience of external switches needing to be employed. Via the DLR device-level network re-routing and failure point identification users can realize the benefits of improved reliability and shorter network recovery periods. The sensors are suited for applications in factory automation systems, plastic injection molding apparatus and materials handling equipment, and feature linear, absolute measurement, Device Level Ring (DLR) with embedded switch, multiple mounting options, position and velocity up to 20 magnet, non-contact sensing technology and LEDs for sensor status and diagnostics.
