The interface connects sensors with IO-Link capability to a PC and enables parameter setting of sensors, reading of the current parameter setting, of the current measured values and further process values. The LINERECORDER sensor operating software is used for set-up, parameter setting and process data exchange of the IO-Link devices. An EtherNet patch cable is used to connect the IO-Link master and the processor.
The memory plug is used where sensor data is to be copied or stored. This could for instance be the case when a defective unit needs to be replaced or several sensors with the same parameter settings are installed.
