IO-LInk Now Included
02 November 2012
ifm electronic has upgraded its TAD series temperature transmitters.
The self-monitoring units comprise two different sensor elements which monitor each other. This ensures that a developing sensor drift is immediately detected and reliably diagnosed. It also ensures that if one element fails there is the back-up to ensure that the process continues. For users this means increased reliability and calibration intervals can be increased to reduce costs.
The upgrade is the inclusion of an IO-Link interface which allows the programming of drift warning thresholds, display units, analogue scaling etc., to be carried out via the now widely available IO-Link 1.1 protocol.
