The Rockwell Automation IO Link Technology

Problem * Cost-effective solution to increased productivity through seamless integration all the way down to the field device level.
Solution * The Rockwell IO-Link Complete Solution
IO-Link Technology is a worldwide open-standard protocol that integrates sensors into our Connected Enterprise by connecting the IO-Link enabled device into an IO-Link master module. You can deliver data from the sensor directly into a control system in a very efficient manner. The flexibility of IO-Link capable sensors allows machines to operate more effectively by providing the controller with diagnostics. In addition to product detection, sensors provide detailed and accurate machine health status to improve uptime and increase productivity.

IO-Link enabled sensors offer advanced features and diagnostics that can only be accessed through an IO-Link master module. These sensors act like standard sensors when not interfaced to an IO-Link enabled control system, so you can stock the same sensors for standard I/O (SIO) applications and IO-Link applications, simplifying the selection process and reducing stocking costs.

The benefits of IO-Link Technology include:

  • Reduced inventory and operating costs
  • Increased uptime/productivity
  • Simplified design, installation, setup and maintenance
  • Enhanced flexibility and scalability
