Communication down to the sensor level
Bringing IoT innovation to the plant floor
IO-Link provides an internationally accepted platform for sensors to report fault detection, condition monitoring and component identification, and to communicate the details throughout the system. This unique solution helps shorten commissioning, minimize downtime and boost production availability.
Why should you use IO-Link?
As the first I/O technology for communicating with sensors and actuators to be adopted as an international standard (IEC 61131-9), IO-Link enables continuous and intelligent communications at the sensor level. This opens up new opportunities in automation in the manufacturing industry and provides several key benefits:
- Fault detection for fast and easy troubleshooting
- Condition monitoring for predictive maintenance
- Component identification for easy replacement
