TempoGate® - the smart assistant for the R-Series V

Jun 30, 2022, 05:24 AM by Kai Jansen
Temposonics, company of the Amphenol Group, announces the release of the TempoGate® smart assistant for the R-Series V position sensors.

The advanced features and smart functions of the new generation as well as TempoGate® make existing and new applications future-proof and ready for Industry 4.0.


The TempoGate® smart assistant supports all R-Series V sensors with intelligent diagnostics and operational statistics. One TempoGate® can be linked to as many as 24 R-Series V sensors with digital outputs EtherCAT®, EtherNet/IP™, POWERLINK, PROFINET and SSI or available soon for up to 12 R-Series V Analog sensors.  Once connected via power supply, the devices are able to communicate bi-directionally.

TempoGate® provides status information and settings of the connected R-Series V sensors and transmits them via OPC UA during operation. Equipped with an OPC UA server, TempoGate® enables users to monitor additional sensor parameters and combine this information with other machine status data. The smart assistant is designed for permanent installation in a control cabinet and transfers the following sensors’ current details via LAN or WIFI network to a graphical user interface:

  • Current sensor status such as the total distance travelled by the position magnet, the total operational hours of the sensor and the current temperature inside the sensor electronics housing
  • Current parameter settings such as the resolution and the measuring direction
  • Sensor information such as the order code and the serial number

Users benefit from the smart integration into the control cabinet, which connects TempoGate® directly into their systems to support condition monitoring and link it to further data of other components of the plant. Temposonics® R-Series V position sensors together with the new TempoGate® smart assistant provides operators with detailed information to improve machine performance, optimize maintenance cycles, and detect issues at an early stage to increase machine uptime.
