Increased Plant Transparency
The E30391 IO-Link display is a flexible solution to display process values, texts and messages as well as QR codes in a plant. It displays up to four assigned process values, alarms and warnings. Clear text and a colour change of text and background guarantee a quick overview. By means of buttons the user can trigger control actions of the PLC or acknowledge messages.
The new product is connected to the IO-Link master like an actuator and controlled via PLC. No special software is required for configuration. Texts and settings can be predetermined via an IO-Link device tool such as LINERECORDER SENSOR. Texts and settings can be adapted even during operation via the PLC. With this new IO-Link display, the user gains a clear overview and is already best-equipped for Industry 4.0 by using IO-Link.
