8-port IO-Link master module with LINERECORDER AGENT embedded
Interface for factory networking
With the integrated LINERECORDER AGENT, this master enables direct networking of all connected IO-Link devices with a local server via an Ethernet network. Using this connection, machine data, process parameters and diagnostic data can be directly read and processed by the IT. The easy-to-use server software LINERECORDER SMARTOBVSERVER* enables data evaluation by means of customer-specific cockpits.
Using the same communication mechanisms, it is possible to directly couple machines and exchange production-related data.
From sensor to SAP
For the first time, sensor data can be directly transmitted to management software - and this on a factory-wide or even worldwide level.
Evaluation of the obtained data in real time enables an increase in production efficiency and energy savings in the context of Industry 4.0.
*LINERECORDER SMARTOBSERVER is a server-based software for data storage, predictive maintenance and quality monitoring.
Ethernet interface for PLC connection
This IO-Link master operates as an input/output card with a total of 20 I/Os, of which 8 are for IO-Link devices and the rest for binary signals.
All signals can be easily transmitted to compatible controllers via the standard fieldbuses EtherNet/IP or Profinet.
Two ways simultaneously = PLC and server in parallel
So far, all sensor signals had to be sent by the PLC to higher-level systems. This is now done via a parallel communication path (Y path). The PLC program remains unchanged.
Integrated web server for configuration and diagnostics
No special software is required for configuration. All IO-Link settings can be made via the integrated web interface. To do so, a standard PC with Ethernet connection and web browser is required.
Convenient IODD integration
Via the web interface, up to 8 different IODDs (IO-Link device descriptions) can be loaded into the master. After connection of the IO-Link devices, the corresponding IODDs are automatically assigned to the connected IO-Link devices and the corresponding ports.
