With a view to the requirements of Industry 4.0 applications, the digital point-to-point connection IO-Link offers a manufacturer-independent, fieldbus-independent communication technology, which provides manifold possibilities for the intelligent connection of sensors and actuators to the control level of an automation system and the communication between plant control and field level.

Wide range of functions with IO-Link capable sensors from Müller Industrie-Elektronik

The comprehensive, standardized communication with each IO-Link capable sensor and actuator enables additional sensor data, transmission of measurement and switching signals without losses and numerous independent diagnostic functions. Error, diagnostics or status messages, the sensor communicates independently to the controller. Unique device identification via vendor / device ID result from the IO-Link interface.

Advantages at a glance with IO-Link communication:

  • Measuring range-dependent load hour meters
  • Adjustable digital switching point
  • Message at sensor overflow
  • Configurable maintenance message
  • Sensor archive for TAG number, system number,
    locations,operating hour meter per system
  • Monitoring of supply voltage
  • Monitoring of device temperature
  • Peak value memory (min/max)
