SMC launches its first smart ac­tu­a­tion sen­sor

D- MP: THE FIRST SEN­SOR IN SM C’ S PROD­UCT PORT­FO­LIO TO DE­TECT THE STROKE PO­SI­TION OF AIR CYLIN­DER SAT ALL TIMES-WITH CON­TIN­U­OUS FEED­BACK. IT’ S AVAIL­ABLE IN THREE TYPES OF OUT­PUTS: ANA­LOGUE SIG­NAL, I O-LINK PROCESS DATA OR FLEX­I­BLE SWITCH­ING POINT.

AS THE LAT­EST ad­di­tion to its com­pre­hen­sive range, the D-MP high­lights the com­pany’s com­mit­ment to seek­ing new ways to make cus­tomer’s lives eas­ier and to op­ti­mis­ing op­er­at­ing ef­fi­cien­cies. The D- MP of­fers the re­as­sur­ance of con­sis­tent and con­tin­u­ous ac­cu­racy and con­trol; the ana­logue out­put of the ac­tu­a­tor po­si­tion has a volt­age out­put range of 0 to 10 V and a cur­rent out­put of 4 to 20 mA. Here, all three out­puts ben­e­fit from four mea­sure­ment modes within a range of 0mm to 200mm.

The func­tion­al­ity of the D- MP means that mul­ti­ple auto-switches can be re­placed by one ac­tu­a­tor po­si­tion sen­sor, re­duc­ing the num­ber of com­po­nents needed. Be­ing IO-Link com­pat­i­ble, D- MP gives op­er­a­tors ac­cess to de­tailed data and flags up any is­sues with an in­ter­nal er­ror warn­ing. Its plug and play de­sign de­liv­ers fur­ther cost and labour ef­fi­cien­cies with less hard­ware re­quired and a re­duced risk of pro­gram­ming er­rors.

The switch­ing point of­fers nor­mal and re­versed out­puts and four mea­sure­ment modes – sin­gle point, auto switch, win­dow and two- point – with an ON/OFF po­si­tion func­tion, so that it is pos­si­ble to de­fine mul­ti­ple switch­ing points in the small­est of spa­ces. Of­fer­ing this level of func­tion­al­ity and con­trol, the D- MP is suit­able for a wide range of ap­pli­ca­tions such as mea­sur­ing var­i­ous pa­ram­e­ters in­clud­ing length and width dis­crim­i­na­tion or screw-in depth of ma­chined holes.

This com­po­nent is IP67 cer­ti­fied and can with­stand haz­ardous en­vi­ron­ments.
