The first JUMO products with an IO link interface are now on the market through the dTRANS p35 pressure sensor and the dTRANS T1000 temperature sensor. Both sensors have a wide application range – from tool machines to the food industry.
The JUMO 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 JUMO 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.
JUMO dTRANS p35 and dTRANS T1000 sensors with IO link interface can be configured with identical software and offer a wide range of process connections. The PEKA process connection adapter system from JUMO enables the pressure sensor to also be used in the pharmaceutical and food industries (e.g. in beverage filling plants).
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.
