Omron Enlists Maxim Transceiver For IO-Link Sensor Apps

Maxim Integrated Products announces that its MAX14827A dual IO-Link transceiver has been adopted by Omron Corporation. The device, which utilizes IO-Link sensors to reduce maintenance and increase uptime, provides continuous diagnostics and monitoring at Omron's customers' production sites. It dissipates > 50% less heat than other solutions and is the smallest solution available.

 

Omron is expanding its IO-Link sensor series primarily in photoelectric and proximity sensors. Equipped with an individual identification confirmation feature and unique ability to detect abnormalities and monitor situations, Omron’s IO-Link sensors deliver solutions that shorten downtime, lower frequency of sudden failures, and increase efficiency in changing arrangements. This enables smarter production facilities by collecting critical data for stable facility operations, with PLCs and other superior controllers, via EtherCAT through a master unit.
