Improved Functionality Through Remote Access

Monitoring

Conventional Method

It is desired to prevent false detection by the sensor before it stops production. However, there is no way to monitor it without looking at each sensor.

->

With the NU Series

The sensor status can be monitored on an HMI, PLC or PC, making it easier to detect problems before errors occur.

Tooling change (setting value change)

Conventional Method

If multiple products are manufactured on the same line, settings need to be adjusted for each sensor during changeover.

->

With the NU Series

The NU allows for settings to be changed externally from an HMI, PLC or PC. As a result, changeover time can be reduced, even where sensor settings must be changed frequently.

Settings backup/recovery

Conventional Method

When shipping a machine, it is necessary to provide setting procedure details for the sensors. Assembling this information can be quite time consuming.

->

With the NU Series

When shipping a machine, backup settings can be quickly saved on an HMI, PLC or PC. Recovering these settings is quick and easy.
