PROFINET IO Controller

 

 

 

Many of you know that the iQ-F Series compact PLC has a built-in Ethernet port, but did you know that it doubles as a Modbus/TCP client communication port? In GX Works3 programming software, you can setup the pre-defined protocol function and use the built-in Ethernet port to communicate with Modbus/TCP enabled devices.

 


OD1000

 

 

 

 

The solution for precise measurement over long distances. With its sensing range of up to 1 m, the OD1000 displacement measurement sensor sets new standards in precise distance measurement with triangulation. Its high performance data ensures a smooth production process and allows a high level of productivity in a wide range of applications, almost regardless of the surface quality, color, or object structure. The clear OLED display with four operating keys simplifies commissioning and optimizes the machine availability. As a standalone device with integrated evaluation, IO-Link interface, and additional functions, the OD1000 simplifies machine integration, saves additional evaluation effort, and paves the way for sustainable production.

  • Large measuring range of up to 1 m
  • Simple setting via OLED display or SOPAS configuration software
  • Standalone device without external amplifier unit
  • Rugged metal housing
  • Adjustable analog output (mA/V) and push-pull switching output with IO-Link
  • Precise measurement regardless of color or surface
  • Versatile mounting possibilities
