Configuration of this family of sensors can be accomplished either through the integral teach button or via IO-Link. This product's top features include: Diffuse, retro-reflective and through-beam modes Diagnostics with IO-Link including low voltage, over temperature and emitter detect Stability/margin indicator Visible red light for easy alignment Multiple output modes including single point, window mode and two point sensing modes

Factory automation requires reliable and precise detection of objects in various applications with photo-electrics. Balluff has incorporated IO-Link functionality of remote teaching, diagnostics, and parametrization into the widely used 18 mm tubular housing. IO-Link functionality includes multiple switching modes for reliable detection and multiple teaching options for easier integration and better stability.
