Germany-based sensor expert Wenglor has developed a wide range of sensors with live Ethernet applications for easy integration. Ethernet’s intense bandwidth provides remote alignment of the sensors and speedy communication of data.
Wenglor’s prime Ethernet communications include transit time sensors, reflex sensors with background suppression and barcode scanners. The Ethernet’s interfaces are made accessible using IP67-shielded M12 connectors.
Customers may choose from the three models of industrial Ethernet: Profinet, EtherCat and EtherNet/IP. The sensing units of these products are designed to provide the choice of using Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) technology for uninterruptible power supply (UPS) operations and for data transmission, offering enhanced security to the connected systems.
The web servers in the Ethernet sensing devices will allow their configuration even with no extra software. Its web browser enables users to process data and design products from any part of the world. Wenglor also features connection boxes, which integrate high-quality sensors with digital I/O into the three Ethernet systems for industrial applications. Aside from this, the midspan adaptors provide voltage to Ethernet solutions using PoE, or integrate them into the prevailing networks without PoE.
Ethernet switches are also made available to divide a single Ethernet wire into various lines and adjust the elements to users’ preferred network topology. The switches are also offered with or without PoE.
