Description

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.

GeneralPart number1915.230
Functions8-port IO-Link Master (Class A) Edge Device with sensorEDGE Cloud connectivity
Power supplySupply voltage+24 V DC, –25%/+30% (18 V DC … 31.2 V DC)
Note: Voltages above 34 V may cause permanent damage to the device.
Voltages below approx. 10 V will cause a shutdown of the device.
Note: The sensorEDGE does not need or use auxiliary supply voltage (U2L), even though the pins for the 2L auxiliary load circuit are implemented on the device. The 1L and 2L load circuits are galvanically isolated from each other.
Under-voltage warningU1L < 18 V: 1L LED shows steady red
U1L > 17.7 V: 1L LED returns to steady green
Over-voltage warningU1L > 30 V: 1L LED blinking red (4 Hz)
U1L < 29.7 V: 1L LED returns to steady green
