How do you detect objects effectively?

Posted in Carlo Gavazzi Sensors by Alison on October 21st 2021

A new era begins with PD30 and IO-Link


The popular PD30 photoelectric sensor now comes with IO-Link technology.  The well-established PD30 fulfils many industrial requirements by providing a flexible sensor with accurate detection of objects of different sizes, shapes or surface structures.

IO-Link now adds intelligent functionality to countless industrial applications providing many advantages such as standardised and reduced wiring, broader range of available data and configurations, remote configuration, monitoring and diagnostics as well as easy replacement, programmability and customisation of your sensors.


Here are some of the popular features

  • Available in plastic or stainless steel AISI316L housings and featuring IP69K and ECOLAB approval
  • Provides accurate detection of objects of different sizes, shapes, or surface structures
  • Easy configurable functions via IO-Link ver. 1.1
  • Machine downtime reduced thanks to the predictive maintenance functions: Quality of Run, Quality of Teach, Temperature and dust alarms, Excess Gain and Auto Adjustment

Four new unique predefined and selectable application functions: Speed and length, Pattern recognition, Divider function and Object and gap.
