Balluff has come up with a simple and practical solution for connecting RS232 serial devices directly to IO-Link. The company’s new IO-Link convertor for RS232 devices allows the connection of serial devices such as barcode scanners, printers or RS232 controllers directly to an IO-Link terminal.

The compact convertor removes the need for expensive alternatives such as RS232 cards, freeing the way for more users to switch to IO-Link and enjoy all the advantages of this modern communication standard, such as remote monitoring and configuration.

The IO-Link convertor comes in a rugged IP67-rated stainless-steel housing measuring 118 x 18mm and weighing just 100g. It has two digital inputs and highly visible LEDs that simplify diagnostics. Connection to IO-Link is via a 4-pin M12 plug. On the RS232 side an 8-pin M12 female is provided. This also provides 24V power for the RS232 device.
