Compact I/O modules with expansion port
Shielded cables and interface cards run up your fi eld installation costs. Help is here with IO-Link sensor/actuator hubs with M8 connectivity. These modules save you around 30 % in hardware costs compared with traditional fi eldbus devices. If you consider the additional savings from bus and power supply cables, the cost savings are as high as 40 %. This is because one economical M12 standard sensor cable is all you need for connecting to the IO-Link master. Another advantage of IO-Link hubs: you need only one bus address to variably collect sensor signals from up to 20 meters away. It's the greatest possible effi ciency!
