Pepperl+Fuchs IO F77 Series features IO-Link compatibility, an integral pushbutton, and advanced configurability.
Pepperl+Fuchs released its Series IO F77 ultrasonic sensors that feature an integral pushbutton to allow simple configuration without external hardware. More advanced configuration requires that company’s PACTware software that lets users customize sensor parameters and visualize every measurable echo point within a scan area. Other features include the ability to intelligently blank-out and ignore unwanted, non-target echoes. The series can also handle color variations or transparent targets, area object detection (up to 800mm), immunity to acoustic interference and have minimal deadband. The IP67-rated sensors are usable in temperatures ranging from -25°C to 70°C (-13°F to 158°F).
