IO-Link master modules in the IP20 and IP67 degree of protection

IO-Link is considered key technology for implementing industry 4.0 and IIoT concepts. For this technology Weidmüller provides IO-Link master modules in IP20 and IP67 degree of protection. Plug-in connectors and pre-assembled cables for the bus connection as well as sensor/actuator cabling complete the product portfolio. The parametrisation and configuration of IO-Link devices can be performed with a web‑based configuration tool that contains an interface to the manufacturer‑independent IODDfinder database.

Until now, the challenge of machinery and plant engineering has always been to significantly shorten the time-consuming assembly, commissioning and maintenance phases. In these phases individual components – sensors and actuators – are connected electrically, subsequently adjusted and parametrised or exchanged if necessary. Using the IO-Link communication system to connect intelligent sensors and actuators to the controller significantly reduces the amount of time required. Sensors can be connected quickly and without any errors using a pre-assembled cable, for example, while automated commissioning is also made possible by means of downloading parameter sets. Another advantage is IO‑Link’s complete transparency right down to the sensor/actuator level, which convincingly supports plant availability. IO-Link enables precision diagnosis and simplified device replacement, which considerably reduces downtime and hence maintenance costs. Weidmüller is also providing comprehensive support for the advantages of IO-Link with u-remote, the flexible I/O system for streamlined planning and accelerated commissioning. Whether used as a control cabinet system, in mixed applications in the IP20 and IP67 degrees of protection or placed directly in the field for signal connection purposes, u-remote provides the user with all the freedoms of a flexible I/O architecture and offers the advantages of a consistent overall system. The u-remote integrated configuration tool enables convenient parametrisation and configuration, independently of the implemented fieldbus/network protocol.
