Length monitoring of deflectors with Smart Sensors

Smart Sensors generate and receive more than classical switching signals and measurands. Thanks to the A72 Smart Task, a Smart Sensor of the W4 product family delivers a length measurement result through internal offsetting of an encoder signal (e.g. DBS36) with its own detection signal. This allows for cost-effective and intelligent inspection of deflector flags for completeness and reference length.
