Air humidity/temperature sensor with IO-Link

| By Mary Page Bailey

Hans Turck

This company’s first combined air humidity/temperature sensor (photo) is easy to integrate into a process due to its IO-Link interface. The combined measurement of air humidity and temperature in a single device makes the CMTH-M12 ideal for use in condition-monitoring systems or for monitoring the climatic conditions in production areas and warehouses in a wide range of industrial sectors. The sensor monitors two limit values ranges, each with a minimum and maximum value, for outputting a warning signal in the event of an out-of-range value. The bidirectional IO-Link interface can also be used for the transfer of cyclical user data as well as warning and status messages, such as operating hours. Conventional switching outputs are also provided as an alternative. When used in combination with this company’s multiprotocol I/O devices, user data and analysis data can be transferred over separate Ethernet protocols. — Hans Turck GmbH & Co.
