Festo’s SPAU and SPAN pressure sensors are designed to simplify choice and reduce complexity for engineers. SPAU is Festo’s new flagship machine and cell level pressure sensor, while SPAN is an all-new compact, low cost model – in a 30×30 mm format. Their IO-Link functionality makes SPAN and SPAU fast and easy to set up and commission and also enables remote maintenance and parameterization. The freely programmable SPAU comes with either protection class IP65 or IP67 and can be employed with six possible electrical connections including plug, 4-pin, M8 and M12 as well as nine possible pneumatic connections. SPAN shares the same intuitive menu guidance used in SPAU and is available with or without a built-in visual display. The display version feature a clear, high-contrast, two-colour, back-lit LCD, allowing users to easily monitor their systems. SPAN is easy to set up and maintain with IP40 certified protection against outside ingress.
