Additional Information

IO Link Enabled Sensors Can Now Integrate with the Connected Enterprise

IO-Link Technology allows sensors to easily integrate into the Connected Enterprise, delivering data from the sensor directly into a control system via EtherNet/IP protocol. This is a very cost efficient and easy-to-use method which is transparent to the control system.

IO-Link enabled sensors offer advanced features and diagnostics that can only be accessed through an IO-Link master. These sensors act like standard sensors when not interfaced to an IO-Link enabled control system, so you can stock the same sensors for standard I/O (SIO) applications and IO-Link applications, simplifying the selection process and reducing stocking costs.

The benefits of IO-Link Technology include:

  • Reduced inventory and operating costs
  • Increased uptime/productivity
  • Simplified design, installation, setup and maintenance
  • Enhanced flexibility and scalability
