IO-Link Programming Tool
Novotechnik’s IO-Link programming tool helps users program, test and adjust RFC-4800 series of touchless angle sensors.
Novotechnik introduced its IO-Link programming tool designed for its RFC-4800 Series of touchless angle sensors. The device connects a sensor to a mini USB port of a PC running Windows or newer operating system. IO-Link enables users to program, test and adjust custom offset values to null point, set direction of rotation as clockwise or counter clockwise, average the output across, 4, 16 or 64 values to smooth the signal for noise filtering and other reasons. It also reads an error signal if the magnet, the touchless RFC-4800 it is connected to, is absent or outside the sensor’s operating range by being too close or far from the sensor. It also reports functional status of the sensor. Once a sensor has been programmed, it can be software-locked through IO-Link. A unique device identifier is also readable over the IO-Link interface.
