Condition Monitoring with IO-Link

The condition monitoring sensor, along with the condition monitoring toolkit (CMTK) from Balluff offers the benefits of numerous sensors in a compact package to fit restrictive spaces. This versatile new technology monitors numerous physical variables such as vibration, temperature, relative humidity, and ambient pressure to help avoid unplanned stops and faults. When paired with the CMTK, this data is readily available across the network, to be used and monitored anywhere.

The sensor collects condition data on any process, manipulating this data onboard to produce a useful output for your host system via IO-Link. This condition data is essential for developing a smart system that is IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) capable. The connectivity, as well as the multi-functional condition monitoring capabilities of this sensor, allow for the automation of manual inspection, saving you both time and money.

Balluff has worked tirelessly to build out a complete product offering that allows for IIoT capable processes in any application. For instance, the data from the condition monitoring sensor can be interpreted by an automated monitoring system to define operating limits that trigger pre- or main alarms. By implementing the condition monitoring sensor with status indicators such as the Balluff Smart Lights, you can easily check the status of any process at a glance.
