The Wenglor PNG//smart photoelectric sensor range offers intelligent sensors with five different functional principles, all equipped with IO-Link.

Sensor settings can be easily saved and duplicated for other applications due to the IO-Link interface. This simplifies initial start-up and saves time, and condition monitoring permits predictive maintenance. Should replacement become necessary, the sensor’s configuration is automatically transferred to the new device by means of a data storage function. Clear visualisation provided by Wenglor’s wTeach2 software makes it possible to match the sensors precisely to complex applications. Switching thresholds and functional reserve are rendered visible, permitting a qualitative assessment.

The sensors work with laser, red or blue light, and offer precise optical characteristics. They are adjusted at the factory such that each sensor has the same switching distance when the settings are identical (whether via potentiometer or IO-Link). Due to a balanced spot with an aligned optical axis, no subsequent realignment of the spot is required. This simplifies initial start-up as well as replacement. The sensors also don’t influence each other when they’re mounted directly next to or opposite each other, and they are insensitive to interfering light.
