IO-Link Basics – Discover the way towards the smart factory

Available on demand

Machines and processes need more information in good quality. The conventional technology with switch points and analogue values can only provide this to a limited extent.

IO-Link is the solution here: With IO-Link, you get the information you need in the quality you expect.

But IO-Link can do even more. IO-Link helps you simplify your wiring. IO-Link makes it easy for you to set the devices. With IO-Link, you can monitor the devices in your machine and thus achieve greater production reliability.

When it comes to Industry 4.0, you will not be able to avoid IO-Link. With IO-Link, you can get information directly from the machine and evaluate it.

Join the webinar and be surprised by the possibilities IO-Link can offer you - and how you can easily integrate it. We will be happy to accompany you on the way to your smart factory!

In the web seminar, our speakers address the following topics, among others:

  • What is IO-Link
  • Who is behind IO-Link
  • Advantages of IO-Link
  • Wiring with IO-Link
  • Smart IO-Link products
