IO-Link for the T.VIS® A-15

IO-Link is the first globally standardized IO technology (IEC 61131-9) to communicate with sensors and actuators.

IO-Link is the first globally standardized IO technology (IEC 61131-9) to communicate with sensors and actuators.

The powerful point-to-point communication is based on the long-known 3-wire sensor and actuator connection without any additional requirements for the cable material. Therefore, IO-Link is not a fieldbus, but the evolutionary advancement of the existing and proven connection technology for sensors, actuators and thus also for control tops of the latest generation.

Sensors and actuators can communicate

  • Process data will be digitally exchanged with high signal quality.
  • Components can be centrally parameterized.
  • Diagnostic information can be transferred from the valve to the controller.

End to complex wiring

  • Standardized and considerable simplified installation.
  • IO-Link is fieldbus-independent and can be integrated into all fieldbuses worldwide.
