A step towards Industry 4.0

To ensure smooth operation on the production floor, it is important to keep the machine downtime to a minimum. The new IO-Link technology permanently generates data on the sensor level and transmits them to a PLC for processing. The result is a large amount of data waiting to be analysed so that they can be used in a meaningful way. The right information helps to take effective measure in the case of a failure in the shortest possible time. To find out at an early stage why a component has failed is a big advantage. Panasonic’s IO-Link sensors are equipped with a self-diagnosis function which outputs individual failure information for each sensor type, for example when the amount of light received has deteriorated. This way, you receive error messages specifically for the problem at hand without extra programming effort.

Thanks to predictive systems, Industry 4.0 helps to reduce maintenance time. For sensors with a self-diagnosis function, users only need to monitor the parameter value that informs about whether the sensor is still working properly.

Compact miniaturized housing

Because the laser beam is deflected inside the sensor, it has been possible to reduce the housing to a minimum size. Parameters can be set directly at the device with the help of the buttons and the built-in display.

Easy configuration

Perform 1-point teaching and the threshold range is set for the distance from the reference surface of the object to be detected.

2-point-teaching uses threshold values. For this method, all you need to do is press TEACH once for the lower (first point) and once for the upper limit (second point). This is useful for detecting objects at different distances.

For the 3-point method, you set the threshold range by conducting the teaching at 3 points (detecting object A, B and C). After teaching, the reference points are automatically sorted in ascending order (reference point 1, 2 and 3). The thresholds are set at the midpoints between reference point 1 and 2, and 2 and 3, respectively. This is useful for detecting objects at different distances.

Typical applications

  • Assembly line downtime caused by failures of the sensor can be avoided thanks to predictive maintenance.
  • When the sensor is mounted close to the assembly line it is often very difficult to change the device settings via the buttons because access to the sensor is very limited. Remote setup and monitoring of the sensor offers many advantages.
