          Programmable Logic Controller

          KV Nano series

          Sensor networking


          When product type or condition is changed, there are many operations required such as reading the data of sensors/measuring instruments into the PLC or writing setting values into the PLC. In the past, such operations were implemented by creating a serial communication programme; however, using the KV Nano together with KEYENCE sensors can reduce a lot of man-hours.

          Sensor networking

          Applicable products

          Connection complete without programming

          No programme is required for the connection with sensors. The setting is easy by just selecting and placing a desired sensor with the special setup software. Since the measured data is stored in the special memory of the CPU, it can be displayed quickly on an HMI or other output. When the VT3 Series is used, it is also easy to check the connection condition and change the setting values.

          Wire-saving connection with a single LAN cable

          The PLC and a sensor can be connected quickly with a commercial LAN cable. Unlike previous models, a lot of man-hours for wiring can be reduced. Using a single network system allows centralised control of connected devices.

          Batch transfer of sensor settings for quick changeover!

          During product changeover, sensor settings and conditions can be changed collectively, resulting in the reduction of man-hours.

          Connect to remote I/O over Ethernet

          Simple connection with a single touch

          Support for EtherNet/IP™ compatible remote I/O systems. Anyone can finish configuring the settings with a single touch, so it is possible to easily perform batch monitoring of devices and sensors that are not equipped with communication functions over Ethernet.
