Pioneering Communication with IO-Link
WAGO’s Top Automation Solutions Speak IO-Link
IO-Link is the flexible interface for data acquisition on the field level. The open communication standard allows a seamless data flow from the sensor level to the control level. This makes configuration and cabling considerably simpler. In addition, it offers new options for diagnostics, parameterization and device identification: With the corresponding IO-Link master, for example, both the process data and acyclic data for identification, configuration, parameterization and diagnostics can be sent to the corresponding device (sensors as well as actuators) via a 3-wire connection. The functions and performance data are specified via device description files for masters and devices. If a device needs to be replaced, the configuration and parameterization can be automatically restored – no need for maintenance personnel to intervene.
