BALLUFF'S IO-LINK OFFERS EFFICIENCY AND FLEXIBILITY

IO-Link actuator/sensor hubs from Balluff feature eight ports for a total of 16 in-/outputs, and now feature a new-to-market expansion port. 

Designed for maximum flexibility and efficiency, they allow for signals from up to 16 switching sensors to be collected from a distance of up to 20m.

Then, they can be made available to the machine controller via IO-Link and an IO-Link master using a simple 3-conductor cable.

Each slot can be reconfigured as an expansion port by means of a simple parameter entry. A complete valve plug or an additional sensor hub can be connected to it. For the user this means a significant gain in flexibility and efficiency.

Now it is possible not only to cost-effectively process additional in- and outputs, but also expand the range to a circle of another 20 m. Thanks to plug-and-play and the use of unshielded standard cables, the system can be started up in no time at all.
