All levels of automation systems technology require efficient parameter data handling and systematic diagnostics. Therefore, integration of sensors and switching devices into your automation system network is essential. IO-Link — the innovative interface for the last meters of the process — offers new options to achieve this goal.
Switch language to:
Consistent automation is only possible with sensors and actuators. The smart connection of sensors and substations to the control level ensures precise and profitable production. The communication standard IO-Link is ideally suited to this purpose. Integrating all components is simplified by IO-Link in switchboards and IO-Link on the field level. They ensure maximal consistency and efficiency on the last steps to the process and thereby seamless communication.
