What is IO-Link?

IO-Link is the first, worldwide standardized and digital communication technology (IEC 61131-9) designed for inter-sensor communication. The high-performance, point-to-point communication is based on the tried-and-tested 3-wire sensor connection (M8 and M12) without any extra requirements regarding the cable material. An IO-Link Master communicates with the IO-Link sensors. The IO-Link Master is installed either in a switching cabinet or in the field. The IO-Link sensor is coupled with the Master via an unshielded sensor cable of 20 metres length. This provides for digital signal transmission (binary switching, analogue input / output, parameters) to the PLC.

IO-Link provides for uninterrupted communication from the machine level to the control level to the lowest in-field level. In future, ERP access all the way to the sensor is no longer a problem. The sensor parameters are administered centrally, reducing downtimes and allowing for sensor replacement within minutes.

A single interface for the entire communication system: Binary switching signals, analogue signals (4 ... 20 mA, 0 ... 10 V), parameter configuration (RS232) – IO-Link manages all that via a 3-wire sensor connection. Transmission is digital, so there is no need to shield the cable and transmission errors are practically impossible. Pins 1 and 3 are for applying voltages, Pin 4 transmits all other signals and allows for easy sensor configuration via the PLC software during operation.


Our IO-Link-related products

autosen provides everything you may need for automation using IO-Link: The required IO-Link software, the IO-Link Master, suitable Ethernet cables and of course IO-Link compatible sensors of many different kinds.

The IO-Link software allows you to parametrize the sensors from the comfort of your own workplace. The IO-Link Master manages the communication between the software and the sensor. The Ethernet cables ensure a secure connection for signal transmission – be that from the Master to the software or from one Master to another. You can find all the autosen sensors that can be digitally connected using IO-Link here.

The advantages of IO-Link at a glance:

  • High-performance, point-to-point communication with sensors
  • No extra requirements regarding the cable material
  • Uninterrupted communication down to the lowest in-field level
  • Self-parametrizing feature means sensor replacement only takes minutes
  • Reduced downtimes and wiring thanks to unshielded cables
  • Manipulation-safe and future-oriented
