Smart sensor provides continuous diagnostics

Smart sensor provides continuous diagnostics

A smart valve sensor which provides continuous feedback and essential diagnostics to help plant operators ensure optimum process performance has recently been introduced by sensor specialist IFM Electronic. The MVQ smart valve sensor provides outstanding, all-round position visibility with bright multi-coloured LED indication helping plant operators to monitor the flow of media from a distance. For example, is the valve open or closed? Is the valve opening fully? Or is it blocked by deposits? Is it closed properly, or is the seal wearing?

If used as a standard sensor the MVQ will provide three switched signals for the valve position. However, thanks to the integrated IO-Link interface the sensor becomes a real-time diagnostic device providing continuous real-time feedback, as opposed to a simple, less sophisticated valve position sensor.
