Wenglor was the first manufacturer to integrate Realtime Ethernet and Power over Ethernet (PoE) into sensors. wenglor products are available with three globally established data protocols: PROFINET, EtherCAT and EtherNet/IP™. This allows them to be quickly and easily integrated into existing Ethernet infrastructures.
Industrial Ethernet is impressive not only due to the high-speed exchange of information, but also due to the fact that it enables easy reading and analysis of normalized data protocols and service data. This continuous communication between the sensor and the controller saves time and money and allows for clear planning. The possibility of location-independent services and maintenance are further advantages.
wenglor products with Power over Ethernet require only one cable for power and data transfer. As a result, installation and wiring costs are considerably reduced.
Currently, products in the fields of photoelectronics and image processing are available with Ethernet and PoE, and with barcode scanners with Ethernet. This chapter contains complementary products. The industrial communication product portfolio is continuously being expanded.
