IO-Link makes possible point-to-point communication for complete configuration and monitoring capabilities. The amplifier features an intuitive interface, dual display, digital readouts and easy set-up and configuration. The unit increases sensing capabilities for diverse applications, including plastic and glass assemblies, electronics assembly machines, pill and caplet counting and high-speed detection for registration mark or product-leading edge detection. When connected to an IO-Link Master, configuration and application trending data can be communicated to a host controller on the field bus network. The amplifier provides full manipulation of all operating parameters, including switch point threshold, Light Operate or Dark Operate, various output timing functions, electronic gain level and sensor response speed. Operators can also implement one of six Expert TEACH and SET methods for optimal gain and threshold selection for each application, particularly in low contrast environments, such as small part or clear object detection. Thermally stable electronics minimize warm-up drift and enables multiple amplifiers to be mounted side-by-side, with no reduction in the ambient temperature limit. Inherent thermal stability also reduces machine start-up time and eliminates production delays due to ambient temperature changes. An intricate cross-talk avoidance algorithm allows two fiber optic assemblies to be mounted in close proximity, sensing different features of the same target.
