Banner Engineering adds IO-Link communication to its DF-G1 fiber amplifier to enable point-to-point communication. The DF-G1 features an intuitive interface, dual display, digital readouts, and easy set-up and configuration. Offering complete user control, it allows full manipulation of all operating parameters including switch-point threshold, light or dark operation, various output timing functions, gain level, and sensor response speed. Users can implement one of six Expert TEACH and SET methods to ensure optimal gain and threshold selection. Relying on a 32-bit microprocessor with a 12-bit analog-to-digital converter, the amplifier delivers response speeds as fast as 200 µs.
