Intelligent Expansion of Optical Sensor Range: PNG//smart Generation Supplemented with 1N and 1P Housing Formats
Our PNG (Photoelectronic Next Generation) smart sensors from Wenglor are currently the most comprehensive range of Industry 4.0 sensors available on the market. The sensors offer maximum performance and flexibility in solutions for complex applications.
As of immediately, an aligned optical axis and a balanced switching point, as well as large switching distances and consistent integration of IO-Link 1.1, are resulting in a new class of optoelectronic sensors in housing formats 1P (50×50×20 mm) and 1N (75×32.5×18 mm). Beyond this, the product range including high-performance distance sensors and reflex light barriers is being supplemented with two new functional principles – for a total of seven.
With three housing formats (1K, 1N and 1P), as well as seven functional principles and a selection of three light sources (red and blue LED light and red laser light), nearly any application for contactless object detection can be implemented. And thus not only are automated product changeovers for flexible production all the way down to lot size 1 made possible, predictive maintenance for increased systems availability and automated configuration of sensor parameters thanks to plug & play (via data storage) can also be implemented.
