Maxim announced that its MAX14827A dual-channel IO-Link® transceiver has been adopted by Omron. Maxim's high-performance devices enable IO-Link sensors to significantly reduce maintenance costs, improve uptime, and provide Omron end-users with continuous diagnostics and monitoring of the production site. Compared with other programs, device cooling less than 50%, is currently on the market the smallest size of the solution.
IO-Link is a standard input / output technology that has been popular in Europe. At present, the Japanese market is also growing rapidly. In recent years, this technology as a smart chemical plant construction of one of the key factors, has been widespread concern. Through the digital communication to achieve a variety of factory sensors seamless connection and configuration. As a result of the increased IO-Link market position, Maxim has developed a variety of products based on IO-Link technology, including the MAX14827A IO-Link dual-channel transceiver in the New Industry 4.0 application.
Currently, Omron is expanding its IO-Link sensor family of products, mainly photoelectric and proximity detection sensors. Omron's IO-Link sensor is equipped with independent identification capabilities and detection of anomalies, status monitoring and other features to help users significantly reduce downtime, reduce the frequency of accidental failure, improve the efficiency of configuration changes. Can use PLC and other excellent performance of the controller, in the EtherCAT protocol through the main unit to collect key data to ensure the stable operation of equipment to achieve more intelligent production.You can find more information from components chip website.
IO-Link (IEC 61131-9) is the world's first sensor and actuator to build the standard communication technology. Powerful point-to-point communications transmit data over existing cables, based on proven 3-wire sensors and actuator connectors.
