Turck Compact Ultrasonic Sensors with IO-Link Technology

To further diversify our ultrasonic sensor portfolio, Turck has released a compact ultrasonic sensor with IO-Link technology. The cost-effective design of this sensor still offers the advantages of a standard ultrasonic sensor as well as communication and advanced functions via IO-Link (Version 1.1).  The new device can be taught as a standard sensor via teach-by-wire or programmed and used via IO-Link. Advanced functions such as synchronization allows multiple sensors to be synchronized together without the risk of interfering with each other. When used in this mode, all sensors will transmit and receive information together, which increases the coverage area and …

Turck Introduces Backplane Ethernet Extension Protocol (BEEP)

Turck introduces BEEP, the Backplane Ethernet Extension Protocol. BEEP is a new technology that has been integrated into many of their multiprotocol digital block I/O modules. BEEP allows a network of up to 33 devices (1 Master + 32 Slaves) or 480 bytes of data to appear to the PLC as a single device on a single connection using a single IP address. By reducing the number of connections the PLC sees, you will be able to create high density I/O networks and still utilize their low cost PLC. This technology is utilized by making the first device in the …
