The IO-Link master is a gateway for the connection of up to eight IO-Link devices including sensors, valves or binary input/output modules. Four of the eight ports are designed as B ports and supply auxiliary energy for the connection of IO-Link actuators.
The master transmits machine data, process parameters and diagnostic data to the controller.
Excellent electromagnetic stability, a wide temperature range, a high protection rating and a robust housing qualify the device for use in harsh industrial environments.
The product range includes interfaces to Profinet, EtherCat, Ethernet/IP or Profibus.
