IO-Link
Seamless communication with IO-Link

We speak IO-Link – in all areas of automation

The seamless communication from the sensor to the network is essential for fast, flexible and efficient production. At the same time, a growing amount of data needs to be managed. This requires components that make information available and an infrastructure that transports them across all levels.

With IO-Link, you communicate from the control unit down to the lowest level of automation through an universally applicable standard interface for communication. With IO-Link enabled sensors, I/O hubs and RFID installed on the line, systems can communicate directly to the controller via the network level to guarantee efficiency.

IO-Link from Balluff comprises sensors and fieldbus technology with an extremely wide range of functional principles. Using fieldbus systems like PROFIBUS, PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, DeviceNet, CC-Link, CC-Link IE and EtherCAT, we speak IO-Link in all areas of automation.
