Double monitoring sensors transfer data via IO-Link

04 January 2019

New flow sensors and pressure sensors from Omron are said to offer solutions for controlling industrial processes that use different fluids and gases – performing double monitoring of the main parameters of flow or pressure and also providing temperature control giving advanced warning of process abnormalities.

The sensors are able to transfer information about the monitored system status over a high-speed IO-Link communication standard COM3, as well as identifying data and parameters for self-diagnostics. 

The E8FC/E8PC flow- and pressure control sensors utilise the company’s ‘Vertical Integration Concept’ which allows the transfer of processing data from the lowest level of the automation pyramid up to the top and settings parameters from the top to be transferred down to each sensor.

The E8FC sensor can be used in the automotive industry to prevent sudden stops and defects in molding and welding machines due to cooling liquid abnormalities. And, due to the precise monitoring of hydraulic pressure, the new E8PC can be applied to prevent press and processing defects in different types of pressing machines or in CNC and other machining centres. 

Other industries – where a single processing mistake or abnormality could cause damage to the whole production process or to the final product – could also benefit from this technology.
