PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Higher performance. Less effort.
IO-Link sensors from ifm open up completely new possibilities for the user. From easy and quick setup to additionally available machine monitoring data to process transparency from the machine level to the ERP software: IO-Link offers convincing efficiency gains and cost savings. See for yourself!

These results were achieved by customers who previously used standard parallel wiring of analogue sensors, and were primarily driven by significantly reduced installation times, less components needed and easier integration into the controller.

IO-Link has been developed by leading sensor, actuator and control manufacturers. The result is a standardised and fieldbus independent interface for automation. This provides the user with point-to-point connections without complex addressing.

Easy setup, fast sensor replacement
IO-Link devices are simply e.g. connected via an M12 connector. Malfunctions due to incorrect wiring are therefore excluded. Since standard industrial cables can be used for data transmission, the variance of the required cables is reduced. In addition, only one cable has to lead back to the PLC and thanks to IP69K, many IO-Link masters can be used directly in the field.
