Sensata Technologies Announces New Interface Capability Enabling Industry 4.0 and IIoT Environments

September 14, 2020 / Design World

Sensata Technologies, an industrial technology company and a leading provider of sensors, today announced the availability of two new Rotary Hall Effect Sensors with IO-Link– the ACW4 single turn and the TCW4 multi-turn modular rotary Hall effect sensors. IO-Link integration standardizes the sensors’ outputs so that they can communicate in any IO-Link enabled fieldbus network, simplifying installation and replacement. The new interface capability allows for sensor connection from an ERP all the way down to the component level – enabling Industry 4.0 and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) environments.

Using IO-Link simplifies the need for designing custom IO boxes to translate various sensor outputs into the fieldbus standard for an application, saving space and development cost. With this standardized method of communication, the ACW4 and TCW4 sensors can provide digital, point-to-point signals that connect directly to any IO Link Master. As IO Link ...
