Omron Proximity sensors with enhanced sensing distance and IO-Link

More than 2,500 models have been added to the E2E Next line of proximity sensors. The models have an enhanced sensing distance that minimizes target contact during production and IoT capabilities for improved predictive maintenance. The addition of IO-Link functionality enables the sensors to reduce recovery time by indicating the location and cause of failures. The sensors also can detect warning signs of impending failures and notify users via the network. The combination of IoT capabilities, long sensing distance and oil-resistant sheathing reduces the risk of sudden equipment shutdowns by a factor of three.
