Webinar IO-Link on 17th November

Experience the advantages and opportunities of IO-Link, the communication system for the connection of intelligent sensors and actuators: fast use, easy handling and cost reduction.

On the 17th November at 8 am EST (= 2 pm CET) ifm and the provider IEEE GlobalSpec will broadcast an online webinar on the topic „IO-Link" in English.

In this webinar you can learn all about fast, transparent, safe and flexible use of IO-Link. Experience the advantages and opportunities of IO-Link, the communication system for the connection of intelligent sensors and actuators: fast use, easy handling and cost reduction.

Leading manufacturers from the fields of sensors, actuators and control technology have developed IO-Link. This standardised field-bus independent interface for automation provides the user with point-to-point connections without complex addressing.

The transfer of cyclical and acyclical data, for example, as well as messages in both directions are implemented. The advantages of IO-Link are: no external influence of the signal, no measured value losses, easy sensor replacement, tamper-free operation, unique device identification, and wire-break detection / diagnostics.

Key Take-Aways

  • Learn how IO-Link's plug&play functionality makes setup easy
  • Learn how you can save 20 % of the component costs with IO-Link
  • Understand how to send your sensor data to the cloud using the IO-Link master
