The simple and practical solution for connecting RS232 with IO-Link
Contrary to popular belief, serial RS232 communication is still used in many industrial applications. A typical example is the use of barcode scanners in the automobile or packaging industry.
Integrating RS232 interfaces into the existing control architecture is, however, often expensive and time-consuming because special components are often necessary, such as RS232 cards for the controller. This represents an obstacle for many in switching to IO-Link, with the result that they are unable to consistently take advantage of the benefits of this modern communication standard.
The solution is now here with our IO-Link converter for RS232 devices. The converters allow you to directly connect RS232 devices to an IO-Link terminal. No RS232 cards are necessary for the integration. Now you have a practical and simple to implement solution for uniform and comprehensive communication with all devices and bi-directional data transfer with the controller. And even more: you can reliably monitor all the devices from a central location and configure them quickly and easily.
