Product description

Sensor and data provider - the BOS 21M ADCAP
The new BOS 21M ADCAP series sensor uses IO-Link to provide valuable information about the sensor status or the current ambient conditions. The versatile sensor uses red light and has four sensor modes: background suppression, energetic diffuse, retroreflective or through-beam sensor.

The new diagnostics functions represent a key feature of the BOS 21M ADCAP. The additional data generated here enables the user to realize intelligent maintenance concepts to significantly improve system uptime. An operating hours counter is built in as an important aid for predictive maintenance.
The quality of the sensor signal can be monitored continuously by using the light remission values provide by the BOS 21M ADCAP . This allows the detection of contamination build-up, sensor misalignment, setting errors or other irregularities before they become a problem. The inner temperature of the sensor is measured also and the BOS 21M ADCAP is the first to directly monitor the output power of the emitter LED.

Pre-processing the detection signals right in the sensor is also possible with the BOS 21M ADCAP. This reduces the workload for the host controller and minimizes data traffic A freely configurable count function is therefore integrated into the BOS 21M ADCAP so that the evaluation of count pulses takes place in the sensor itself.
