Capacitive M8 & M12 Sensors with IO-Link

Turck’s compact IO-Link sensors in metal housings have all-round visible LED indication. They simplify mounting and teach processes and facilitate condition monitoring

Turck presents new capacitive sensors in M8 and M12 metal housings for flush or non-flush mounting. The compact and robust IP67, IO-Link devices offer versatile use, particularly when detecting objects in production, logistics or pharmaceutical applications. Their dynamic teach function enables setup and configuration without interrupting production. The sensors detect the extreme values of passing objects on conveyor lines and then determine the ideal switch point. An integrated counter function enables the implementation of autonomous counting applications without the need for a PLC.

The sensors provide a large amount of additional information for condition monitoring such as process values, operating hours, actual internal or peak temperature and number of switching operations. The device status can be called up directly via the interface.

The IO-Link sensors are commissioned with the normal IO-Link processes. The easiest way to do this is with Turck’s IO-Link masters, that enable direct access to all parameters via their web server. Users then don’t have to download an IODD or an IODD interpreter such as Pactware.
