The advantages in using IO-Link technology are endless: from simplified wiring to the availability of a large amount of operation data, from remote sensor configuration to easy replacement in case of malfunction, and of course advanced diagnostic capabilities.
Now we can also offer IO-Link signal towers, which, thanks to three different modes of operation, the fields of application become endless:
- In Simple mode, it is possible to display the status of machinery, easily subdivide the areas to be illuminated from 1 to 5 levels, and freely set the colors and lighting effects.
- In Level Meter mode, you can display the filling levels and temperatures of production processes. The preset lighting scheme can be activated according to the tank level so as to get a clear display of material replenishment times and machine status changes.
- In Animation mode, the cycle time of the production process is displayed; in fact, as time passes, the preset colors change from bottom to top and vice versa.
To summarize, with IO-Link, we can reduce costs, increase process efficiency, and improve the management of machines where frequent configuration changes are expected or that are subject to frequent interruptions or downtime.
