Air Humidity/Temperature Sensor with IO-Link

09-12-2021

Turck's air humidity/temperature sensor simplifies condition monitoring for rooms, machines and plants on site and in IIoT systems 

Turck is offering cost-effective condition monitoring in the field and in IIoT applications with its first combined air humidity/temperature sensor. The device is very easy to integrate via the IO-Link interface. The combination of the two measured variables, air humidity and temperature, in a single device makes the CMTH-M12 ideal for use for condition monitoring of machines and plants or for monitoring the climatic conditions in production halls and warehouses.

The sensor monitors two limit values ranges, each with a minimum and maximum value and provides 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 available. 

When used in combination with Turck's multiprotocol I/O devices, user data and analysis data can be transferred over a variety of Ethernet protocols. While I/O modules transfer the user data to a higher-level controller via Ethernet/IP or Profinet, Modbus/TCP can be used as a parallel channel for analysis data. This information can also be provided for mobile access worldwide via Turck's edge gateways and cloud systems.
