Communication via IO Link
IO-Link allows the easy integration of sensors and actuators from different manufacturers. The IO-Link Master modules enable data exchange with the IO Link devices. Due to the compatibility of IO-Link to standard sensors, commercially available sensors can be operated in accordance with IEC 61131 Type 1 on the IO-Link master.
ET 200pro supports IO-link communication via a 4-port electronic module and a corresponding connection module:
Electronic module 4 IO-Link RF
Connection module CM IO - LINK 4 X M12 P
The connection of actuators and sensors occur via standard 3- or 5-pin M12-connectors on the CM IO - LINK 4 X M12 P. IO-Link devices with Port A and Port B are connectable.
