Dimetix sensors offer different connection possibilities with the PLC systems available on the market.
Some of these possibilities are listed below:
- RS-422 interface: Sensor commands (ASCII-based) are exchanged between PLC and sensor via RS-422 interface (see AN2010, example with RS-422 interface and Siemens S7).
- Industrial Ethernet interfaces: Newer sensor types have optionally-integrated PROFINET, EtherNet/IP or EtherCAT interfaces (see Dimetix website for details).
Other standard integrated sensor interfaces can, of course, also be used for a connection to a PLC system. More information about the available interfaces of the Dimetix Sensors can be found on the Dimetix website.
