Pressure switch for the Industry 4.0 world

To be able to continue covering the different applications for the pressure monitoring of

media such as air, oil emulsions, water, etc., Layher AG from Kirchberg has had several

versions of pressure sensor type 930 for the measurement ranges 0-10 bar, 0-100 bar and 0-

250 bar and a temperature range of 0 to + 70 °C in its portfolio for some time. Based on the

constructive and functional properties of this sensor type, version type 934 has now been

presented that offers an interface for the implementation of the requirements from Industry

4.0 with the international communication standard IO-Link. This made it possible for the

development engineers from the Swabian company to ensure a simpler and faster start-up,

e.g using offline parametrisation of the sensors before installation or online automatic sensor

detection using the IO-Link app on the AS-i/Fieldbus-Gateway. With this pressure sensor

version, the Kirchberg-based company also give its customers a solution to increase the

availability of their machines and plants. For example, operating errors during operation due

to switching off operating keys at the sensor are prevented. The measured values are

transferred without conversion losses. The values on the sensor display correspond with the

values on the machine display. And the machine diagnostics up to the sensor level operate

without interruption of ongoing operation. As sensors and actuators, analogue or binary, can

be connected via IO-Link ports, various input/output modules can be replaced and so

installation costs can be saved. The acceptance of this communication standard by all

leading companies in the automation sector in turn offers long-term investment security for

suppliers and users.
