Vacuum and Pressure Switches VSi make Vital Process Data Visible

POSTED 08/09/2016

The new electronic VSi vacuum and pressure switch from Schmalz measures and monitors low and excess pressure in automation and handling systems. The digital VSi switch can be integrated into existing systems with minimum effort via IO link. The recorded status data reaches control level rapidly via the IO link interface. For the system operator, that means more transparency, diagnostics and parameterization and shorter response times in the event of faults or errors.
