In addition, these new products are PROFINET certified by Profinet International (PI) ensuring PROFINET compatibility.
“Comtrol is proud to introduce its US-designed and manufactured IO-Link technology at Hannover Messe. IO-Link technology is a critical component of the Industry 4.0 and IIoT infrastructure. Comtrol’s IO-Link Master can send the important real-time sensor data from the plant floor to an enterprise system in order to make intelligent supply chain and manufacturing decisions. IO-Link technology and Comtrol’s MultiLink help make Industry 4.0 a reality.” Bradford Beale, President of Comtrol Corporation.
The IO-Link Master PROFINET products are Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industry 4.0 ready with features such as embedded webpage sensor and configuration management.
