Carrying ATEX approval, the LBFH and LBFI level switches integrate an IO-Link, allowing users to automate the configuration of sensors. The sensors are suitable for hygienic and industrial applications plus, thanks to IO-Link integration, they are Industry 4.0-ready. The communication interface enables each application to be configured using standard network components. This ensures error-free duplication of the system and device replacement without the need for additional programming. Diagnostic data can be called up and evaluated at any time, which increases system availability.
Two switching outputs make it possible to set independent trigger thresholds. This means two different process steps, such as production and cleaning, or two media groups, such as water and oil, can be monitored with one sensor. Additionally, the two switching outputs facilitate a plausibility check of the sensor. More information and datasheets are available.
