Cable amplifier with IO-Link interface
The IO-Link measuring amplifier supports bidirectional communication of the IO-Link specification. Information and settings for parameterization are also transmitted to the amplifier by the higher-level controller during ongoing operation. This significantly simplifies installation and commissioning, and extensive diagnostic options and detailed information about the force measurement help with quick troubleshooting, maintenance or replacement of the devices.
The sensor is connected between the strain gauge force sensor and the IO-Link master, so that no separate power supply is required. The sensor signals are converted into digital signals with a cycle time of 1 ms, averaged and made available to the interface circuit.
