Miniature Sensors

High-performance miniature sensors are your first choice when minimal installation space is available in automation technology. Optical miniature sensors are suited for location detection as well as the precise detection of the positions of quickly moving objects. The presence of small objects at defined locations or in an area can thereby be reliably detected.

and IO-Link advantages
IO-Link is a worldwide communication standard according to IEC 61131-9. Sensors and actuators with an immense range of functions and capabilities become intelligent and active process devices in the field with IO-Link. Production processes thereby become more flexible, more transparent, more efficient and more cost-efficient. IO-Link transforms sensors into digital products and enables Industry 4.0 system designs.

Ready for digitization

di-soric IO-Link
Digitize your systems with IO-Link. IO-Link supports the identification, configuration and diagnosis of O-21 series sensors, and this makes the remote maintenance of systems possible right into the device. With parameter memory in the IO-Link Master, sensors can easily be exchanged and commissioned with identical settings.

Configuration instead of specific hardware

di-soric IO-Link – Konfiguration
The compact sensors in the O-21 miniature series can be conveniently adjusted via the control without manual operation using IO-Link. Using a configuration coordinated with the application case, the productivity of sensors in machines and systems can be optimized without additional hardware expense.

Preventive maintenance through diagnosis

di-soric IO-Link – Diagnose di-soric IO-Link – Wartung
Series O-21 miniature sensors detect functional reserve or distance from the object in mm via IO-Link. If the objects or ambient conditions change, an assessment of the sensor function is possible. Diagnosis enables optimized commissioning, coordinated service cycles and the use of remote maintenance.
