Capable of diagnosing own state and reporting to the host device, Reduction of the data analysis burden is one small step toward IoT. Field data was collected and accumulated for “preventive maintenance” and “operation monitoring”. An analysis of such field data requires high-level know-how and time, causing a burden on people responsible for the production site management. The Self-Monitoring Sensor manufactured by Panasonic is capable of reporting sensor data and its own state to the host device through the I/O Link master.
With the Self-Monitoring Sensor, you can immediately judge the state of the sensor and easily identify the cause of failure. Thus, this sensor contributes to the reduction of the burden experienced by the client in collecting and analyzing data. Fitted with a precise CMOS image sensor and an original algorithm, Thanks to a precise CMOS image sensor, it is now possible to perform highly precise measurements in the order of 1/100 mm 0.0003 in. The existing adjustable range reflective sensors cannot achieve such accuracy.
Compact and light-weight, The HG-C series is the smallest CMOS laser sensor in the industry *. W20 × H44 × D25 mm, 35 g approx. (without cable). A new optical system with a built-in mirror, In general, more accurate and stable measurements can be obtained by increasing the optical path length between the light-receiving part and the light receiving element (CMOS), but this also increases the sensor depth and the sensor body gets bigger. The HG-C series sensors incorporating a new optical system with a built-in mirror provide smaller sensor depth as well as higher measurement accuracy equivalent to displacement sensors.
An aluminum die-cast casing protects from strain and heat, A lightweight but strong die-cast aluminum casing has been adopted. A compact, solid body casing reduces the impact of strain and heat on the measurement accuracy.
