750-657 I/O Link MasterAutomation right up to the last yard ...
Increasingly complex products, manufacturing flexibility and high demands on quality assurance require intelligent, configurable and programmable sensors. The new IO-Link standard (IEC-61131-9) for end devices streamlines interfaces for connecting to a control system and device configuration tooling to fulfill these demands. A 3-wire connection can communicate process data for input and output data. It also communicates acyclic data for identification, configuration, parameterization and diagnostics with up to 230.4 kbaud to both sensors and actuators.
The functions and performance data are defined in device description files for master and device; these are easy to customize via WAGO-I/O-CHECK. If a device must be replaced, the configuration and parameterization can be automatically restored without maintenance personnel. Project design, installation and operation are simplified!
Leveraging this technology with the use of WAGO’s 750-657 IOLINK Master will help slim costs by reducing the number of wire terminations required when using intelligent sensors. It also will reduce engineering, maintenance, and commissioning costs by providing a single tool to configure devices from multiple vendors.
