Treotham announces the expansion of the optical sensor range from
Wenglor, making the PNG//smart generation series one of the most comprehensive
range of Industry 4.0 sensors available on the market.
To a greater extent than ever before, Wenglor’s PNG//smart generation of
photoelectronic sensors from Treotham is being distinguished by a unique
combination of performance and communication. An aligned optical axis and a
balanced switching point, as well as large switching distances and consistent
integration of IO-Link 1.1, are resulting in a new class of optoelectronic
sensors in housing formats 1P (50√ó50√ó20 mm) and 1N (75√ó32.5√ó18 mm). Beyond
this, the product range including high-performance distance sensors and reflex
light barriers is being supplemented with two new functional principles for a
total of seven.
PNG//smart generation sensors from Treotham are currently available with
three housing formats (1K, 1N and 1P), as well as seven functional principles
and a selection of three light sources (red and blue LED light and red laser
light), allowing nearly any application for contactless object detection to be
implemented. Not only are automated product changeovers for flexible production
all the way down to lot size 1 made possible, predictive maintenance for
increased systems availability and automated configuration of sensor parameters
thanks to plug & play (via data storage) can also be implemented.
All PNG//smart sensors are consistently equipped with IO-Link 1.1,
making integration into existing control systems via PROFINET and EtherNet/IP
possible as well. A special convenience provided to all users involves the use
of an app for sensor configuration: the NFC interface makes it easy to set up
the sensors by means of near field communication. Furthermore, settings can be
adjusted using a potentiometer, by means of teach-in or at the LED display
directly on the sensor.
The new 1P and 1N housing formats deliver high performance: whereas the
reflex sensors with background suppression and 1N housing format have an upper
range limit of 1200 mm, the through-beam sensors detect objects at distances of
up to 60m. The through-beam sensors with 1P housing format are distinguished by
a range of up to 20m. The sensors are multifunctional and can be used as switching
or measuring devices; thanks to WinTec technology they don’t interfere with
each other. The series is rounded out by diverse connection technology:
optionally connectable via M8x1 or M12x1 plug, or with cable, all the sensors
can be ideally integrated into any system.
