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.
With the help of Balluff inductive couplers, the need for manual insertion of mechanical connectors is eliminated. The couplers send signals and power without contact, are easy to use and offer maximum flexibility. The quick-disconnect units can be changed in the gripper in just moments.
