The detection of wiring cable disconnections and errors, which improves equipment operation rate through quick maintenance.
An abnormality was displayed on the abnormality display screen. However when inspecting the equipment, the maintenance engineer is unable to detect the external error on-site and the cause of the stop was hence not understood.
Investigations towards the cause of the abnormality are lengthly, from 2 hours to several days, because the engineer person is limited to his/her own knowledge and has to perform a manual error identification.
With an IO-Link Photoelectric Sensor/Proximity Sensor
ABNORMALITIES PICKED UP BY SENSORS ARE REPORTED IN REAL TIME
How it Works
When an abnormality occurs, the area and phenomenon is picked up by the IO-Link sensors. The exact location and factors for the abnormality is communicated back instantaneously to the maintenance engineer.
As such, he can take the necessary replacement parts and head to where the abnormality occurred and recover the equipment in the shortest time. This works also with wire disconnection detection, both output wires and power lines.
