  • Integrated web server for configuration and diagnostics
  • Simultaneous data exchange with the controller and the IT world
  • Two Ethernet ports with integrated switch


Masters with fieldbus gateway for control cabinets

The IO-Link master is a gateway with a total of 20 inputs/outputs for the connection of up to eight IO-Link devices, e.g. sensors, valves or binary input/output modules. All ports can be configured as A or B ports and supply auxiliary energy for the connection of IO-Link actuators. The IO-Link master features an integrated web server for configuration and diagnosis.
The master serves to transmit machine data, process parameters and diagnostic data to the controller via Profinet or Ethernet/IP. To ensure that the data can be processed by IT and used at several factory locations or even worldwide, the device has a second Ethernet port with an integrated switch. This second port allows direct networking of all connected IO-Link devices with a local server using a parallel communication path called 'Y path'. The integrated interface software LINERECORDER AGENT enables communication with the server.
