Instant-IO-Link Solution for Remote Monitoring your Sensor Data

sensorEDGE is Hilscher’s solution for fast remote monitoring your machines. Equipped with two netIOL chips – an IO-Link master controller developed by Hilscher – as well as a cloud uplink, the sensor box enables data monitoring and analyzing of up to eight IO-Link sensors simultaneously.

sensorEDGE simply needs a power supply and an internet connection. A complex setup of a PLC or fieldbus system is not required.

As soon as sensors are plugged in and are autonomously configured via the online IODD file database, the sensor-box transmits data into the cloud at a rate of a second. The data can either be visualized immediately in the corresponding cloud web frontend or streamed into any third-party application utilizing the integrated API.

sensorEDGE is the ideal solution for retrofitting existing plants which had been managed and operated locally but have never been remotely monitored. The sensor-box is compatible with all IO-Link-sensors that operate in accordance with the IEC 61131-9 protocol standard, simplifying the implementation of sensorEDGE enormously. The IP67-rated casing is able to withstand harshest environments and allows for a cabinet-free installation close to your machines.
