For extreme welding conditions

Securely transmit signals in electrical noise fields

For extreme welding conditions

Decentralized system architecture in the welding booth

For the extreme conditions of welding, Balluff offers rugged modules for reliable signal transmission even in the presence of interfering ambient influences. Our weld-immune modules, made of fiberglass reinforced plastic, can reliably handle weld spatter, welding currents and electromagnetic fields.

The easy to install modules are available as IO-Link masters and IO-Link sensor/actuator hubs each with eight IO-Link ports for 16 inputs and outputs. Each input is short-circuit proof while each output is protected from overload. In addition, our IO-Link sensor/actuator hubs offer an expansion port for connecting an IO-Link valve interface or another IO-Link sensor/actuator hub, meaning you can use up to 30 inputs and outputs. This lets you flexibly integrate innovative fieldbus solutions.

The efficient point-to-point wiring of IO-Link allows construction of a decentralized system architecture in the welding booth outside the control cabinet. Network nodes equipped with an IO-Link master communicate via Ethernet/IP directly with the main controller or control device on the machine.

You can connect a wide variety of intelligent sensors or I/O modules with IO-Link interface to the IO-Link ports. This lets you use simple structures that are highly flexible. The parameters are also simple to transmit. Continuous diagnostics ensure reliable monitoring. And the affordable, three-core, unshielded industrial cables reduce wiring time.
