Rockwell Automation announces that as of March 2016, specific 42EF RightSight polarized retro-reflective, diffuse, and transmitted beam sensor models are discontinued and no longer for sale.
To support your transition, we recommend that you migrate to our enhanced 42EF Series D sensors. The 42EF Series D sensors offer IO-Link 1.1 protocol which provides users with additional sensor diagnostics when connected to an IO-Link master.
Demanding market conditions pose significant challenges. Across the enterprise and throughout the lifecycle, you must continuously strive for ways to leverage your existing automation investment.
Let Rockwell Automation help you determine your migration options and show you the benefits, including better performance, more informed business decisions, reduced maintenance costs, and quicker response to changing market demands.
