Wireless IO-Link Master For Remote Motion Control

Sept. 25, 2019
SMC’s next-gen wireless base module gets reduced in size and adds flexible connectivity capabilities. 

SMC showcased a sample of the next generation of its traditional wireless base modules during PACK EXPO 2019. The next iteration of the wireless base takes up 50% less space and has a remote antenna that can be mounted onto a control panel. This antenna has an IP66 washdown rating so it can be exposed to harsh conditions.

While this is just a concept for SMC, the company expects this technology to be available for purchase within the next four to six months.
