PROFINET will be handling machine communication in its time-tested way.Another highlight at the PI stand will be a new PROFIsafe model, which will show how machines can work either independently or together. The live demo will illustrate how three machines with different fail-safe controllers can work together in a single system. The device demo includes optical and electromagnetic sensors, drives, controllers, gateways, and safe I/O modules.
The IO-Link Community will be exhibiting a variety of new innovations and offering users even more advantages and an ever-increasing spectrum of products. Users will find the new centralized, cross-manufacturer database for device descriptions of IO-Link devices (IODD) of particular interest. IODDfinder contains the IODDs of the various manufacturers and enables users and IO-Link configuration tools to have centralized access to IODDs. A prototype implementation will illustrate the capabilities of IODDfinder using various IO-Link devices.
