The EtherNet/IP™ sensor supports CIP Sync™ (Common Industrial Protocol) and DLR (Device Level Ring) capabilities. CIP Sync™ offers synchronization between devices in an EtherNet/IP™ network, allowing for increased control coordination in time-critical applications. DLR capability provides a fault-tolerant network so that the sensor can be used in ring connection topologies when reliable continuous system operation is required. In addition, the sensors are available with internal linearization which offers improved linearity for overall higher accuracy of the position measurement values. With many outstanding features the R-Series V sensors are fit for a very broad range of applications.
