IO-Link now integrates fluid technology
Enables digital communication of peripheral valves and pressure switches.
Industry 4.0 is closer than you think. IO-Link from Rexroth is supported by about 150 companies and enables digital communication of peripheral valves and pressure switches. Now hydraulic actuators and sensors have been added to the network. This adds fluid technology to Industry 4.0 applications.
IO-Link standardizes and simplifies wiring with M12 connectors and unshielded 3-conductor/5-conductor cables to eliminate wiring by hand.
All communication blocks are available for the IoT-ready ILC and motion control systems. Combined with IndraWorks Engineering, they provide direct access to project planning, parameterization and testing. And parameters can be adjusted to new conditions.
Standardized plug and play devices reduce machine and system downtime. With authorized access, operating conditions such as temperature, operating hours and error status are evaluated during production.
