EZ-ARRAY with IO-Link


IO-Link allows full configuration of the EZ-ARRAY operating parameters and beam status monitoring. When connected to an IO-Link Master, configuration and measurement data can be communicated to a host controller on the field bus network.

  • Applications include edge and center-guiding, loop tension control, hole sizing, parts counting and on-the-fly product sizing and profiling
  • Closely spaced infrared beams detect objects as small as 5 mm wide; edge resolution is 2.5 mm
  • Controller functionality is built into the receiver, so basic setup requires no controller, software, or PC
  • Configuration options include 14 measurement modes, three scanning methods, two analog and two discrete outputs and a serial output
  • Range is 4 meters
  • Array heights range from 150 to 2400 mm

Scan TimeScan times depend on scan mode and sensor length.

Straight scan times range from 2.8 to 26.5 ms. See

Figure 2-8 for all combinations.
System Configuration (Receiver Interface)6-position DIP switch: Used to set scanning type,

measurement modes, analog slope, and discrete output

2 function (see Configuration DIP Switch on page

27 of IO-Link Instruction Manual)

Push Buttons: Two momentary push buttons for alignment

and gain level selection
System Configuration (IO-Link Interface)Supplied IODD files provide all configuration options of

receiver interface, plus additional functionality; see

Overview on page 5 of Instruction Manual and IODD (IO-Link Device Description)

on page 33
Status IndicatorsSee Status Indicators on page 7 of Instruction Manual
ConnectionsCommunication Interface: The receiver uses a cable

splitter that converts the 8-pin connector to a compatible

M12 IO-Link connector; see Cordsets and Connections

on page 17 of Instruction Manual.

Other Sensor connections: 8-conductor quick-disconnect

cables (one each for emitter and receiver), ordered

separately; see Cordsets and Connections on
