Magnetostrictive Sensor Adds IO-Link Functionality

Magnetostrictive Sensor Adds IO-Link Functionality

Expanding the company’s portfolio of linear position sensors are versions of its popular E-Series that support the IO-Link communication protocol as outlined within the IEC 61131-9 standard. Available in a variety of housing formats, the components are optimized for space-constrained industrial automation applications. The IO-Link protocol offers bi-directional point-to-point communication with both signal transmissions at rates of up to 230.4 kbits/s and power delivery lines. It enables consistent communication between sensors and the controller as well as providing access to diagnostic data. The sensors have a maximum stroke length to 2,540 mm and keep deviation to within a margin of less than 0.02% full scale. A rod-based option, intended for in-cylinder integration, and an aluminum cylinder option that incorporates a guided driving rod containing both the sensor element and the accompanying electronics are available. Operational temperature range spans -40°C to +75°C. For more details, visit
