Why actually IO-Link?
Reduce your costs
Parameterizable sensors and actuators reduce the variety of device types required. This reduces complexity in procurement and creates space in the warehouse.
Realize innovative machine concepts.
Only consistent communication to every sensor and actuator opens up all the functions of intelligent devices. This expands the possibilities for the development of more innovative machines and plants.
Shorten commissioning times
IO-Link communication runs over unshielded cables and uses industry-standard connectors. This saves time and nerves when replacing devices.
Increase the productivity of your machines.
IO-Link devices identify and parameterize themselves automatically. This simplifies the replacement of defective components and reduces repair-related downtimes of machines and systems.
Revolutionize your maintenance
Intelligent IO-Link devices offer self-diagnosis functions. This enables new, predictive repair and maintenance concepts.

Simple, fast and safe commissioning and maintenance.
- Simple point to point connection - low wiring effort
- Uniform and "error-free" wiring using standard cable with M12 connector (plug & play)
- Simple and error-free sensor replacement
- Avoidance of incorrect replacement thanks to unique device identification in the vendor and device IDs
- Avoidance of incorrect settings, as parameters are stored in the master and automatically transferred during device replacement
- Condition-oriented maintenance and targeted service calls
- Minimal effort for troubleshooting
- Modern, manufacturer-independent tools for commissioning
- Minimal type diversity and stock-keeping
High operational safety
- Tamper-proof, since incorrect settings by the operator can be ruled out
- Immediate, centralized fault diagnosis (wire breakage, short circuit, etc.)
- Retrieval of diagnostic data for preventive maintenance, servicing and repair, thus reducing the risk of downtime
- Central parameterization and storage of configuration data
- Dynamic parameterization during operation for adaptive system control when changing recipes, materials or molds reduces downtimes and increases flexibility and production diversity
- Automatic sensor parameterization, plug & play for device replacement
- Simple duplication of parameters
Secure and continuous digital communication.
- Process data, diagnostic data, device information and configuration parameters
- EMC-technically interference-free measured value transmission with 24 V signal level and protection by checksum
- Continuous communication from the lowest field level to the ERP system
- One sensor for several measured values and switching points
- Worldwide remote maintenance and teleservice down to the lowest field level
- Reduced installation and cabling effort
- Savings on analog input cards through the use of standardized fieldbus connection groups
