Modern production sites require a close link between the field devices, control level, and the management planning level.  Sensors are the “eyes and ears” of manufacturing processes and provide consistent communication with valuable data beyond their primary function. They provide life time and load level information as well as environmental data like ambient temperature, contamination, detection quality, and valuable diagnostics information. 

For photoelectric sensors, the intelligent multi-stage evaluation of the emitted light allows for multipurpose use in many applications and avoids critical operating conditions. State-of-the-art production concepts benefit in many ways from these intelligent sensors with their ground-breaking features and properties.  These devices enable them to adapt to changing conditions and differing needs and are the basis for flexible maintenance concepts, machine uptime, and reliable production.
