IO-Link comes with many advantages, but the most important one for most adopters is its ability to work with existing industrial network infrastructures. Balluff, the market leader in IO-Link, will demonstrate this benefit at IMTS (Booth #134064) with a bold display of its own IO-Link Masters surrounded by technology from other vendors.
IO-Link multi-vendor solution wall, which illustrates the interoperability of IO-Link and its simple integration in existing control architecture, highlights how intelligent combining of industrial network with the IO-Link communication standard is the ideal solution for ever faster, more flexible, more efficient and more adaptable production.
The comprehensive IO-Link portfolio from Balluff includes sensors with different functional principles as well as a peerless, broad spectrum of network and connection technology. As a result, Balluf IO-Link supports all current fieldbus protocols. With fieldbus systems such as Profibus, Profinet, Ethernet-IP, Devicenet, CC-Link, and EtherCAT, we speak IO-Link in every field — for quick start up, optimal processes, high connectivity, as well as the greatest possible planning security and efficiency.
The vendor-independent interoperability aspects of IO-Link make this non-fieldbus method of connecting plant floor devices and systems an appealing way to jump-start IIOT initiatives.
Balluff experts will be available for interviews in the booth and at the Manufacturing Smart Hub on Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 11 – 12. Please call to schedule a time to talk about IO-Link and other sensing solutions offered by Balluff.
