Tubular Stainless Steel Sensors

Bulletin 871TM Tubular Stainless Steel Sensors are ideal for harsh or extremely demanding environments. These sensors resist impact, abrasion and corrosion—to keep things moving where ordinary sensors grind to a halt. This line features full mechanical seals at all barrel openings and full epoxy encapsulation for optimal performance in the toughest environments.

Additional Information

IO Link Enabled Sensors Can Now Integrate with the Connected Enterprise

IO-Link Technology allows sensors to easily integrate into the Connected Enterprise, delivering data from the sensor directly into a control system via EtherNet/IP protocol. This is a very cost efficient and easy-to-use method which is transparent to the control system.

IO-Link enabled sensors offer advanced features and diagnostics that can only be accessed through an IO-Link master. These sensors act like standard sensors when not interfaced to an IO-Link enabled control system, so you can stock the same sensors for standard I/O (SIO) applications and IO-Link applications, simplifying the selection process and reducing stocking costs.

The benefits of IO-Link Technology include:

  • Reduced inventory and operating costs
  • Increased uptime/productivity
  • Simplified design, installation, setup and maintenance
  • Enhanced flexibility and scalability
