Balluff’s Dynamic Sensor Control (DSC) technology enables users to detect deviations in the manufacturing process in real time, indirectly through the sensors.

The company can provide a range of inductive, capacitive and photoelectric sensors as well as connectivity and networking products.

With DSC, the value of a machine design can be increased and users profit from greater up-time, simpler start-up and more efficient maintenance, according to the company.

Made possible through DSC-compatible sensors, Balluff’s standard binary sensors can output not only the switching and error signal but also warning and trend messages.

A status change in the machines can be reported in real time to the controller.

A simple three-conductor standard cable is all that is needed to connect and send the switching signals, error messages and warning, because the dynamic information is modulated over the standard binary signal.

Multi-conductor cables are never needed.

In addition, the sensors are claimed to be even less expensive than ‘intelligent sensors’ yet have similar functionality.

All that is required is a connection to a DSC sensor hub.

This collects and condenses the information from up to eight DSC ports to one IO-Link port on the master, which passes the signals onto the controller over the fieldbus.

According to Balluff, DSC sensors, with their warning and trend messages, are a cost-effective way to fill the gap that used to exist between Desina sensors with their error message and the configurable and diagnostics-capable IO-Link sensors.
