Teachable magnet sensor with IO-Link
SCHUNK's teachable magnet sensor with IO-Link can be placed directly in the C-slot of the gripping modules with no interfering contours.
SCHUNK is expanding the analysis options of its SCHUNK PGN-plus-P pneumatic universal grippers as well as its SCHUNK MPG-plus pneumatic small parts grippers with the SCHUNK MMS 22-IO-Link magnetic switch. The sensor can be placed directly in the C-slot of the gripping modules with no interfering contours. It allows the gripper’s entire range of stroke to be detected so that parts of different sizes can be precisely detected. Thanks to the IO-Link, other data can be generated in addition to position monitoring, for example querying the cycle number, the temperature, the analysis quality or sensor identification. Continuous communication between the MMS 22-IO link and the control system is also guaranteed. For this purpose, the sensor, which is fully compliant with the IO-Link Class A standard, is connected directly to the IO-Link master.
