Fieldbus connectivity for optical distance sensors
New interface cables and modular interfacing units from the MA 200i family now facilitate the integration of optical distance sensors from Leuze electronic into Ethernet and fieldbus environments. With the MA 200i gateway, sensors with RS 232 interfaces, for example the ODSL 9, ODS 96B or ODSL 30, are connected easily via an interface cable with industrial-grade M12 connection technology – meaning sometimes complicated and error-prone wiring is unnecessary. Gateways from the MA 200i family are modular interfacing units which allow for simple and comfortable access to Ethernet, PROFIBUS and PROFINET networks. The new fieldbus connectivity for Leuze electronic distance sensors is a perfectly balanced package solution with maximum sensor performance on the fieldbus level.
