Sensors+Rotary Encoders

Inductive and photoelectric sensors as well as rotary encoders for direct connection to AS-Interface are available in various designs. Sensors with the embedded AS-Interface chip offer significant advantages like self monitoring, improved diagnostics (for example failure warning) or the option of assigning parameters to the sensor (for example N.O. / N.C. mode of operation). Sensors built according to Specification V2.1 allow connecting up to 62 sensors per network.
