New Interface Module Connects Sensors with PROFINET Controllers

Precision sensor manufacturer Micro-Epsilon has introduced an interface module that expands the range of connectivity options available for its sensors and measurement systems. The IF2030/PNET module allows simple integration of compatible sensors to a PROFINET network.

The IF2030/PNET module allows simple integration of compatible sensors to a PROFINET network.

The IF2030/PNET interface module is a single channel system that is compatible with Micro-Epsilon sensors that output data via their RS422 or RS485 interface. Screw terminals allow the sensors to be connected to the module directly via RS422/RS485 interfaces. Two network connections are provided for different network topologies. The interface module supports data rates up to 4 MBaud and can be installed in switching cabinets via a DIN rail.

Four status LEDs are provided on the front of the module (system, status, COM0 and COM1). Synchronization output (TTL, HTL) is possible for RS422 sensors. Software integration into a PLC is achieved via a GSDML file.

A range of sensors and measurement systems from Micro-Epsilon are compatible with the IF2030 interface module. These include:

  • Optical laser displacement sensors – optoNCDT 1320 and 1420, optoNCDT 1750 and optoNCDT 2300.
  • Confocal displacement controllers – confocalDT 242x, confocalDT 24x1.
  • Optical micrometers – optoCONTROL 2520.
  • Colour measuring system – colorCONTROL ACS7000.
  • Capacitive displacement controller – capaNCDT 6120.
