Pepperl+Fuchs has developed a range of sophisticated Ethernet sensors to safely and reliably solve even the most challenging tasks, such as exact positioning. The integrated Ethernet interface makes them easy to incorporate into a network without a gateway. Direct network integration offers a number of advantages: Aside from secure data transfer, reduced wiring effort, omission of additional software installations, and the option for global remote maintenance, Ethernet technology offers easy connection to existing networks.
