IO-Link Compatible Products
SMC has several products with IO-Link connectivity. IO-Link is the first standardized IO technology worldwide (IEC 61131-9) for the communication with sensors and also actuators. The powerful point-to-point communication is based on the long established 3-wire sensor and actuator connection without additional requirements regarding the cable material. So, IO-Link is no fieldbus but the further development of the existing, tried-and-tested connection technology for sensors and actuators.
Sensors & Switches
ISE20B Pressure Sensor
Pressure Switch ISE20B series is a high-precision digital pressure switch offering many popular ISE features, with a streamlined selection of piping choices. Compared to the ISE20, the ISE20B adds a 2nd switch output, as well as an analog output, either voltage or current. The ISE20B also has an IP65 protection rating, while the ISE20A is IP40. Each model in the ISE20 family offers a 3-screen, 3-color display. The main screen shows the current measured value in red or green, while two sub-screens can display the setting label and its numeric value in orange. Delay time for the switch output can be as brief as 1.5 ms, while current consumption is held to 35 mA or less. ISE20B is UL/CSA, CE and RoHS compliant, with an IP65 enclosure rating.
ISE70/71 Pressure Sensor
This next generation ISE70 pressure sensor provides continuous quantitative values, as well as switched digital outputs when pressure set points are met. This sensor is also IO-Link compatible. Sensor information, such as identity, functional state, cable connection, and current or switch values can be set or monitored remotely though an IO-Link master, and connected to a fieldbus network. The ISE70 is designed for abusive environments that may also include splashed coolant, lubricants or grime. Electronics are packaged in a metal housing, while the piping connection is a stout lug with female threads, which together protect the sensor against accidental collisions with other objects in the area. A smooth display face with membrane type buttons avoids contamination from grit and sticky residue that could clog or jam raised rubber buttons. The display is angled and can rotate 336 degrees, to permit easy reading when indirectly mounted. The main screen shows instantaneous values in red or green, while the sub screen setting appear in orange. Switch indicators will also light when set points are reached.
ZSE20B Pressure Sensor
The ZSE20B(F) series is a high-precisiion digital vacuum or compound pressure switch. The X101 option supports the IO-Link communication protocol. When paired with an IO-Link master, measured values and settings can be accessed from the HMI screen of the PLC. ZSE20B(F)-*-X101 incorporates IO-Link version 1.1 and COM2 speed. 16-bit process data includes 2 switch outputs, a diagnosis bit, and 13 bits for measured pressure value. Additional standard features include an IP65 protection rating, and 3 manual setting buttons. Settings and measured values are visible at the device on a 3-screen, 3-color display. The main screen shows the current measured value in red or green, while two sub-screens can display the setting label and its numeric value in orange. Delay time for the switch output can be as brief as 1.5 ms, while current consumption is held to 35 mA or less.
EX260, SI Unit
EX260 series is a compact and cost effective fieldbus solution for output applicable to SMC's most popular directional control valves such as New SY, SV, VQC, and S0700 Series. It can control up to 32 solenoids in one manifold. Available protocols are EtherNet/IP™, PROFINET®, EtherCAT®, PROFIBUS DP®, DeviceNet™ and CC-Link. EX260 series has standard dual port connectivity to eliminate the need of switches or branch connector, reducing wiring and component cost. IP67 enclosure rating ensures protection against dust and washdown environment.
JXCL1 IO-Link Step Motor Controller
The JXCL1 is a single axis controller for LE's 24VDC step motors compatible with IO-Link fieldbus protocol. Actuator motors can be operated by calling a line of step data or by direct numerical instruction, each possible over the network. Futher fieldbus compatible functions include return to origin, alarm outputs and resets, parameter setup, status monitoring, and trial runs.
