The IO-Link Master from SICK is a Gateways, which is extremely versatile. It enables via the standardized IO-Link protocol a consistent communication from IO-Link device level to the PLC level. The Gateway acts as a fieldbus participant within the EtherNet/IP network.
At a glance:
- Connection of IO-Link devices (V1.0 and V1.1) or any other standard I/O device to the IO-Link Master via 8 parameterizable ports
- Configuration via engineering tool of the EtherNet/IP
- Integrated webserver
- All advantages of the IO-Link technology such as consistent diagnosis, easy installation and automated parameterization could be completely used
- High machine availability thanks to quick and error-free interchangeability of sensors
