Sensors go Ethernet
A trend towards the replacement of existing first-generation fieldbuses with real-time Ethernet, also known as Industrial Ethernet, is becoming apparent in the field of automation technology. The sensor specialists at Wenglor have recognised market demands and are making their sensor products fit for the future. The company is integrating new real-time Ethernet technology into its transit time sensors and reflex sensors with background suppression, with the launch of the first all-in-one photoelectronic sensors.
Simple standard sensors with digital PNP switching inputs and outputs can be easily integrated into existing Industrial Ethernet systems with the help of connection boxes. As with the switches, connection boxes are available as EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT and Profinet variants.
