Carlo Gavazzi has extended its PD30 photoelectric sensor family to now include IO-Link versions. The PD30 IO-Link photoelectric sensors are not short on features; and include background and foreground suppression, PointSpot versions offer sensing distances up to 6m, diffuse reflective variants with IR or red emitted 1M sensing distance, retro-reflective sensors with or without polarisation and through beam sensors which are used to detect objects either by reflection or interruption of the emitted light beam.
The PD30 is manufactured in a reinforced PMMA/ABS IP67 housing and includes a manual potentiometer for easy setup and easy adjustment, NO and NC outputs and NPN and PNP versions.
Utilising the latest IO-Link technology adds functionality to many industrial applications, providing programmability and customisation to your sensors, and solutions to common factory automation dilemmas. IO-Link can provide many advantages such as standardized and reduced wiring, broader range of available data and configurations, remote configuration, monitoring and diagnostics as well as easy replacement.
