Fully-digital signal transmission

The analog signal transmission of the optical sensors is exposed to many electromagnetic disturbance fields in the timber industry due to automated conveyor processes. Digital communication of the Smart Sensors, on the other hand, enables safe transmission of data without the use of shielded cables thanks to IO-Link.
