IO-Link Starts with #Balluff

What is IO-Link?

A new, simple, field-bus independent and open standard communications interface.

Serial bi-directional point-to-point connection. This is Not a new bus system!

Seamlessly “Add-onto” the the binary signal interface. It can transmit I/O data via a serial protocol.

Cabling that is 100% compatible with existing technology.Utilizes existing field-bus communications platform.

Your benefits at a glance


  • Cable installation: 3-wire non-shielded standard cable, IO-Link port, 24 V digital signal

  • Cable track application: less and thinner cable, higher cable life expectancy, less weight / high dynamics

  • Networking: fewer network nodes, sensor connected via low-cost hub to node, overall cost reduction


  • Convenient and free: Data is stored and managed from a central position by a remote control system.

  • Minimize machine downtime: Automatically transfers parameter sets to the new device

  • Easy, effective, and fewer mistakes: Multiple parameter sets need to be created just ONCE, effectively


  • Full range of diagnostics without additional wiring effort

  • Status-based and need-based maintenance possible

  • Monitoring of communication and diagnostics indicate device availability
