Sensors & Switches

Sensors and Switches Hero Image

Industrial sensors and switches, sometimes referred to as transducers, installed in the factory automation space can provide essential machine feedback. They can monitor On/Off status, confirm operation within an optimal range, or measure real time operation e.g. pressure or flow.

Industrial sensors and switches can connect to a PLC or other central controller via fieldbus or IO link to enhance troubleshooting by decreasing diagnostic time. Sensors can also become the data source for providing better predictive analytics integral to Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) or Industry 4.0, all while potentially increasing worker safety.

SMC’s pressure sensors (ISE/ZSE) will provide a setpoint-trip signal if a minimum or maximum pressure threshold is broken. The ITV Series electro-pneumatic (E/P) regulator will control air/vacuum pressure steplessly in proportion to an electric signal. PF Series flow sensors will monitor flow rate of air, cooling or cleaning water.
