Point-to-point communication with IO-Link systems from ifm

Amazing IO-Link

In the past binary switches usually provided simple switching signals or analogue values. Today the data from intelligent sensors is the basis for the next industrial revolution. Sensors that extract all the information from your machines and equipment using the key technology IO-Link.

IO-Link has been developed by leading sensor, actuator and control manufacturers. The result is a standardised and field-bus independent interface for automation. This provides the user with point-to-point connections without complex addressing.

Use the amazing IO-Link and contact us so that you stay productive and competitive with your production processes of tomorrow.

Head start with IO-Link

Today the user gets completely new options with IO-Link sensors from ifm. Additional sensor data, for example, is generated to achieve maximum efficiency and cost saving. This allows process transparency from the machine to ERP to optimise your existing automation. Furthermore IO-Link has a lot more to offer.

IO-Link product range

An IO-Link system consists of an IO-Link master and several IO-Link devices.

IO-Link is a manufacturer-independent point-to-point communication system used to connect sensors and actuators to an automation system. An IO-Link system consists of an IO-Link master and several IO-Link devices. The IO-Link master represents the interface to the controller or fieldbus level and communicates with the connected IO-Link devices.
