IO-Link Portfolio for decentralized automation

Turck has expanded its extensive IO-Link portfolio with an 8-port master with M12 power, a compact 4-port master in IP20, as well as I/O hubs with an external power supply. A web server update simplifies the parameterization, commissioning and maintenance of the masters.
The TBEN-L-8IOL IO-Link master is now also available with an L-coded M12 power supply that enables currents of up to 16 A.
The high power ports of the 8-port master enable power hungry equipment such as grippers to be fed with up to 4 A of power. As an IP69K device with an extended temperature range of -40 to 70 °C the rugged block module is ideal for installation at the machine. The IP20 FEN20-4IOL master for connecting four IO-Link devices is specially designed for use in restricted spaces. The TBIL-L-16DXP-AUX I/O hub with an additional power feed for applications is a new IO-Link device for increased power requirements. The consistent galvanic isolation of voltage groups V1 and V2 enables actuators to be switched off safely in an emergency while the sensors remain activated. The I/O hub links up to 16 digital inputs or outputs with universal ports to an IO-Link master. The I/O hubs are available with a 7/8 inch or M12 power supply.
Networking and Security
New software features simplify the engineering, commissioning and maintenance of Turck's IO-Link devices

Simplified handling
of IO-Link devices

Turck's IO-Link masters benefit from a comprehensive web server update for the I/O modules that simplifies integration and handling of IO-Link devices. The new web server with optimized user guidance, an intuitive design, context-based help functions, as well as clever software components such as the IODD Configurator, simplifies commissioning and maintenance of IO-Link devices without additional software. The IODD configurator makes it possible for example to display relevant parameters in plain text or to graphically display the measurement curves of sensors. Via the manufacturer independent database "IODDfinder", the user has access to all IO-Link devices available worldwide.

Facilitated engineering

Turck supports the engineering of IO-Link devices with the "Simple IO-Link Device Integration" (SIDI). IO-Link masters with SIDI enable the devices to be handled like genuine Profinet modules with their own GSDML entry. Users can select devices from the device library and integrate them via drop-down fields – without the need for any programming or additional software. The connection of existing systems with their own software solutions enables Turck to provide a flexible overall solution for handling IO-Link devices – both in the engineering as well as for commissioning and maintenance. This once more underlines the commitment of the automation specialist to being a digital automation company with end-to-end IIoT solutions. ds
