The basic setup describes how to connect an IO-Link master to a computer via Ethernet cable and presents some other basic functions.
The software LR DEVICE allows you to configure each sensor quickly and easily via a PC. A single-port master (e.g. E30390) or an Ethernet IO-Link master (e.g. AL1300) is required in addition.
For permanently installed communication in the field, the device can be used with a field master in COM mode (IO-Link operation). In addition to the hardware, ifm offers a startup package for data integration into the PLC.
To transfer data to the IT world, you can collect it e.g. via TCP-IP or MQTT using the field masters.
