IO-Link master for hygienic areas

IO-Link master for hygienic areas

Specially designed for safe use in wet areas in the food industry

  • 4 or 8 IO-Link ports with full V1.1 functionality
  • IP 69K field module for the food industry
  • Master and devices configurable via the LR DEVICE software
  • Industry 4.0 ready via LR AGENT EMBEDDED
  • Voltage supply via standard M12 sensor cable, A-coded
Robust field bus modules for demanding applications
​The decentralised IO-Link masters are used as gateways between intelligent IO-Link sensors and the fieldbus. Thanks to their special housing materials and high ingress resistance (IP 69K), they can be used directly in wet areas in the food industry. The materials and production methods are identical to the ifm jumper cables of the tried-and-tested EVF product series. The ecolink technology guarantees reliable, permanently ingress-resistant M12 connections of the connection cables. High-quality materials especially suited to the application and intensive monitoring during and after production guarantee maximum quality standards.
Advantages and customer benefits
Configuration of sensors with LR DEVICE
The intuitive software finds all IO-Link masters in the network and creates an overview of the whole plant. Besides, all sensors connected are indicated with the respective parameters. This means that parameter setting of all sensors in the system is possible from one central point.
Use as masters for the food industry
​These masters can now also be used in hygienic applications due to the materials used and their innovative housing design.
Easy sensor connection​
The sensors and actuators are connected via standard M12 connection cables without screening. Depending on the device type, up to 4 or 8 IO-Link sensors can be connected and supplied with up to 3.6 A. The cable can be up to 20 m long.
Reliable digital data​
The sensor data is transferred digitally. Unlike analogue signals, contact resistance and EMC interference cannot corrupt the signals.
Direct connection to the IT​
The integrated LR AGENT EMBEDDED is capable of transmitting the process values directly to ERP systems, without detour via the PLC. This second communication path is available in parallel to the fieldbus via the bus wiring.
