IO-Link masters specially designed for the control cabinet

IFM has introduced new IO-Link master modules for the control cabinet to serve as a gateway between intelligent IO-Link sensors and the fieldbus. They also enable data to be sent simultaneously to higher level IT systems. With a separate IoT Ethernet socket the IT network can be set up completely separated from the automation network, ensuring machine uptime is never compromised.

Along with this separation of the automation and IT networks, the new IO-Link master modules offer a number of other important benefits, including intuitive sensor configuration software. This finds all IO-Link masters in the network and creates an overview of the whole plant. In addition, all connected sensors are displayed with the respective parameters. This makes it possible to set the parameters of all sensors in the system from one central point.

The sensors and actuators are connected via standard M12 connection cables without screening. The connection cables are fixed via removable COMBICON connectors on the IO-Link master. Up to 8 IO-Link sensors can be connected. The cable can be up to 20m long.
