IO-Link is the first I/O technology for communicating with sensors and actuators to be adopted as an international standard as described in IEC 61131-9. This technology enables the cyclic exchange of digital input and output process data as well as the acyclic exchange of parameter and diagnosis data between a Master and its associated Devices. A Master can be coupled via a gateway to an upper-level system such as a Fieldbus with a PLC.
IO-Link is a serial, bi-directional point-to-point connection for signal transmission and energy supply under any networks, fieldbuses, or backplane buses. It is based on the familiar 3-conductor connection for a digital switching signal, in which the switching signal is issued as a serial telegram. With IO-LInk, information can be exchanged in the form of a serial protocol between the I/O level and the field device.
The IO-Link system offers decisive benefits as a digital interface for connecting sensors/actuators.
