21 May 2024

Hilscher, a developer of innovative industrial communication products and services, has introduced two new Edge IO-Link masters to help customers modernize their machines and plants through instant IO-Link machine monitoring. The new devices can connect directly to Ethernet-based IT infrastructures without the need to interface with existing communication networks and their control systems.

The new Edge IO-Link masters come in two versions:
- SensorEDGE: Based on a central platform, this complete system allows users to remotely monitor up to eight IO-Link sensors. Requiring only a power supply and an internet connection, the SensorEDGE box transmits data into the cloud at one-second intervals for direct analysis.
- SensorEDGE FIELD: Featuring two container engines and optional cloud support, SensorEDGE FIELD connects up to eight local IO-Link sensors and includes an open computing platform for the user's software with centralized management.

SensorEDGE devices combine computing power and IO-Link master technology in one IP67-rated housing. In addition, Hilscher’s centralized edge management platform allows users to manage the new devices easily either locally or via the internet.
