Dieser Blogbeitrag behandelt berührungslose Infrarot-Temperatursensoren. Wie funktioniert ein Infrarot Temperatursensor mit IO-Link Schnittstelle? Typische Anwendungen für diese Art von Sensoren sind in der Metallurgie und Glasherstellung. Überall dort, wo flüssige oder heiße Metalle produziert oder verarbeitet werden. This post is also available in English     Automation in Stahlwerken Moderne […]

Berührungsloser Infrarot-Temperatursensor mit IO-Link – Enabler für Industrie 4.0



This post is about a non-contact infrared temperature sensor. You will read about the benefits for modern production processes that involve objects with very high temperature. Typical applications for this kind of sensors are in metallurgy and glass production. Everywhere liquid or molten metals is present and being processed. This […]

In web development, JSON objects are a programmer’s dream come true. JSON, or JavaScript Object Notation, is much similar to XML (EXtensible Markup Language) in that it’s used as a standard format to organize and transfer data across multiple programming languages. For example, say you want to send sensor data […]

Warum tut sich die Industrie, oder genauer gesagt und oft genannt, der Mittelstand (KMU) so schwer mit dem Thema Industrie 4.0? Oder stimmt das vielleicht gar nicht? Ein Standpunkt zu Industrie 4.0 Viele Definitionen zu diesem Thema sind für mich recht hochtrabend, zu abstrakt und auf jeden Fall klingt es […]

IO-Link has become synonymous with the term “distributed modular I/O”. We know it is universal, smart, and easy, but what exactly is IO-Link? In a nutshell, by utilizing a standard sensor cable, the IO-Link slave device speaks point to point with an IO-Link master. The IO-Link master then combines the […]
