The integrated IO-Link master function allows comprehensive diagnosis and parameterization. The L-coded M12 power plug provides a current of up to 16 A and reduces installation costs. Modules with an integrated logic function can tackle autonomous applications, completely replace control panels, or deal only with status messages. As such, these fieldbus modules form the foundation for Industry 4.0 solutions. The multiprotocol feature permits standardization in the machine where different module types were previously required; a rotary switch makes it possible to switch between the PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, and EtherCAT protocols. The integrated web server facilitates downloads and parameterization, and also provides a diagnostics indicator. IO-Link-compatible sensors and actuators can be connected, configured, and parameterized using the integrated eight-way IO-Link master. Key benefits of this solution include transparent diagnosis and the ease with which devices can be replaced thanks to the redundant data storage.
