Fieldbus module for fiber-optic sensors and distance sensors

Bus traffic on the information superhighway

teaser

At SICK, sensor data travels by bus: Fiber-optic sensors and distance sensors are connected to a WI180C-PB fieldbus module and integrated in PROFIBUS systems. The communication module enables quick access to the individual sensors and transfers their data to the control system. In automated processes, the module optimizes the transfer of parameters and the integration of the sensors into the machine network. In this way, the WI180C-PB plays a key role in ensuring fast communication between the control system and the sensors in machines and plants. Continue reading
