IO-Link customer stories

ABB: Cost savings with IO-Link

ABB in France relies on ifm to equip their distribution systems with IO-Link masters and I/O modules. This helps them save time and material for cabling. The possibility to be independent of a specific fieldbus makes the offer of ABB France very flexible.

NEREUS: Reliable wastewater treatment thanks to IO-Link

NEREUS develops and produces compact filter pump systems for the filtration of wastewater. With ifm, they have a reliable partner who supplies them with numerous sensors, such as pressure sensors, temperature sensors, level sensors and their new conductivity sensors.

Technoalpin: Efficiency increase of snow cannons

Technoalpin is a manufacturer of snow cannons based in South Tyrol.
Thanks to numerous sensors in snow cannons and pumping stations, ifm helps to bring progress to the slope. IO-Link technology ensures a highly efficient system control. The software allows the customer to conveniently evaluate all data such as flow rates and system parameters and adjust them as required.

Starrag: Digital upgrade with IO-Link

Industry 4.0 is among other things about creating a digital silhouette of a plant, thus allowing for computer-aided process optimisation. The essential information is provided by many sensors that are already installed for machinery control anyway. Thanks to IO-Link technology, these sensors provide much more data than mere switching signals or analogue values. Starrag Technology GmbH in Bielefeld (Germany) is a company that produces machine tools and extensively equips them with IO-Link sensors from ifm. Thus, end users are all set for the industry’s digitisation which is becoming increasingly relevant.
