IO-Link – the new form of communication on the sensor level
IO-Link offers new options for communication between the system control and field level: Sensors and actuators become active process participants in an end-to-end automation network. As senders, they independently report errors and statuses to the control. As receivers, on the other hand, they receive signals – and process them. The result: cost and process optimization throughout the entire supply chain – across all industries.
IO-Link is integrated as a fixed feature in Smart Sensors. Other features create the foundation for a forward-thinking automation system in the context of Industry 4.0.Interested in Smart Sensor technology?
