Simple network topology for high system availability

Robot-assisted automation tasks can be found throughout the plastics industry. The Balluff IO-Link portfolio offers an incomparably wide selection of masters, hubs and intelligent sensors for cost-saving network topology. What's special about it: All sensors can be connected with IO-Link – even pre-installed sensors are directly integrated into the fieldbus level. And for IO-Link devices continuous diagnostics and parameterization are provided by the controller. The simple connection with an unshielded, 3-wire industrial cable makes it possible to save considerable amounts of time and money and allows for high system availability.
