JUMO introduces the first products with an IO link interface for temperature and pressure measurement, both have a wide application range – from tool machines to the food industry. IO-Link is a pioneering communication system for connecting intelligent sensors and actuators to automation systems. The standardization covers the electrical connection data and a digital communication protocol which is used by the sensors and actuators to exchange data with an automation system.
The system offers clear benefits: a three-wire connection with an M12 plug connection enables simple integration into established fieldbus systems and, therefore, communication to the lowest field level. Sensors can be replaced much easier and machines as well as plants can be started up more quickly. The cabling work is also significantly reduced.
The dTRANS p35 pressure sensor covers a measuring range from -1 to 600 bar. Its accuracy at an ambient temperature of +20 °C is 0.5 % of the measuring span and its long-term stability is less than 0.2 %. The dTRANS T1000 temperature sensor works with a tried-and-tested Pt1000 element sensor from JUMO. Its measuring range is between -50 and +260 °C. Both sensors have different switching functions such as switching point, adjustable hysteresis, switching delay, or window function.
