Panasonic offers a wide array of Photoelectric and Laser Sensors for Industrial Automation applications. The unique HG-C Series CMOS Type Micro Laser Distance Sensor is perfect for highly accurate measurements in the order of 1/100 mm (0.0003 in.).
Panasonic’s compact DP-100L Pressure Sensor with IO-Link features an improved digital display that offers increased clarity and a wider viewing angle. Thanks to a redesign of its circuitry, the low-power-consumption DP-100L series requires 14% less power during normal operation and when operating in ECO / FULL mode the display is completely shut off for an increased power savings of up to 50% compared to normal operation. The current value and the threshold value can be checked at the same time, so the threshold value can be set and checked smoothly without switching to another screen mode.
To ensure smooth operation on the production floor, it is important to keep machine downtime to a minimum. Panasonic IO-Link technology permanently generates data on the Sensor level and transmits them to a PLC for processing. The result is a large amount of data waiting to be analyzed so that it can be used in a meaningful way.
