Sensor-level IO-Link integration
With a view to the requirements of I4.0 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.
Advantage with IO-Link:
Full transparency and new communication on sensor-level
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. Sensor-level IO-Link integration not only increases productivity and reduces machine costs, but also simplifies sensor replacement while preserving redundant parameter data. The availability of machines and systems can be significantly increased with IO-Link-capable devices by reducing downtimes and accelerating the restart during maintenance or repair. Müller Industrie-Elektronik extends the Modular Economic Sensors and Modular Compact Sensors series as well as the head transmitter temperature transmitters with IO-Link-compatible types. The complex control, diagnostic and monitoring functions of the IO-Link-compatible temperature, pressure and level sensors by Müller Industrie-Elektronik optimize processes in I4.0 machine environments and create ideal conditions for I4.0 applications in the machine and plant environment.
