Your Solution for Cloud-Based Applications

ICE2/ICE3 Series IO-Link Masters

ICE2/ICE3 Series IO-Link Masters

ICE2 (EtherNet/IP) and ICE3 (PROFINET) series IO-Link masters from Pepperl+Fuchs Comtrol provide the most versatile industrial IO-Link master solutions supporting the industry’s leading protocols, including EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, and MODBUS TCP. The modules come with a full web-based configuration approach with no need for any additional software or a higher-level PLC.
Together with an integrated OPC-UA interface, the IO-Link masters are the ideal solution for cloud-based and hybrid systems.








OPC UA Logo

OPC UA, short for Open Platform Communications Unified Architecture, enables the platform-independentinteroperable, and cross-vendor collaboration of machines in production and makes communication between machines and systems possible—both in closed networks and via internet. OPC UA is more than just a communication protocol because the architecture also includes data models and interaction concepts.



Serial Gateways (DeviceMaster®)

Pepperl+Fuchs Comtrol Serial to Ethernet Gateways (DeviceMaster®)

DeviceMaster® serial to Ethernet gateways enable superior device networking capabilities to connect RS-232/422/485 serial devices like barcode scanners, weight scales, and RFID readers to Ethernet or industrial Ethernet networks running Ethernet/IP, MODBUS TCP, or PROFINET. Pepperl+Fuchs Comtrol’s DeviceMaster gateways feature enhanced security, including SSL & SSH management and SSL serial data stream encryption. Products are available with different connector options and support DIN rail, panel, and rack mounting.
