IO-Link enables seamless communication and digital data transfer from the control level right down to the sensor level. Intelligent devices can be used to their full potential with IO-Link, paving the way for Industry 4.0 in automation technology. The internationally standardized interface provides value at all stages, from plant design to installation right through to operation and maintenance, by sustainably reducing costs and increasing efficiency.
Standardized device description files (IODDs) and parameterization via software tools ensure convenient configuration and integration of IO‑Link sensors and actuators. Intelligent and transparent parameter management increases flexibility within the application and minimizes downtime. Parameters can be adjusted quickly and easily, even during complex production changes and batch changes. With transparency right through to the sensor, users have access to a comprehensive range of parameterization options and device diagnostic functions, allowing them to carry out predictive maintenance.
Pepperl+Fuchs offers you an end-to-end IO-Link system solution, which includes a wide range of IO-Link sensors as well as an Ethernet IO module with integrated IO-Link master. This combination facilitates seamless communication between the IO-Link devices at field level and higher-level systems at management and control levels. As a communication standard, IO-Link reduces the multitude of interfaces and consequently also the number of control inputs required. Over the long term, this reduces planning and administrative costs while increasing flexibility.
Prepare your plant for the future, profit from transparent data exchange down to field level and sustainably reduce costs at all levels. Since IO-Link is internationally standardized (IEC 61131-9), your investment is secure over the long term.
Ethernet IO modules with integrated IO-Link master facilitate reliable, efficient communication between management and sensor/actuator levels as they assume a gateway function between the Ethernet and IO-Link. For quick and easy connection and configuration of IO-Link sensors via the USB interface on a computer, Pepperl+Fuchs offers an IO-Link USB master...
