IO-Link sensors provide a multitude of functions. To actually use them, they have to be individually implemented in the PLC. This is at present very time and cost intensive, in particular as regards the implementation of the required user interfaces. ifm provides ready-made programming examples and apps. Configuration and setup is considerably facilitated and errors are avoided.
