New space-saving Profibus IO-Link Master
01 May 2009
These IO-Link Masters make the intelligence built into sensors and actuators available to the control level. Balluff now offers a, space-saving version of its IO-Link distribution box for Profibus. The slim and rugged zinc die-cast housing with 224x37x32 mm dimensions is equipped with large LED indicator lights.
The IP67 protected distribution box is the ideal solution for applications in tight mounting spaces and where dust, water, oils or even mechanical loads are present.
With its M12 connection technology, it is ideal for a variety of uses including connection of sensor hubs, control panels or actuators such as valve terminal units.
The Profibus IO-Link Master is available with two or four IO-Link terminals. In combination with IO-Link sensor hubs, this means up to 68 sensors can be connected. Unused IO-Link ports can be used as standard input or outputs.
Balluff IO-Link Masters replace complexity with standardisation. It makes no difference whether the signals from measuring or binary sensors are sent to the machine controller or setup parameters need to be sent to the devices. The entire data exchange with the control level takes place in typical IO-Link fashion over a single, 3-conductor standard cable. No additional cables, shielded special cables or different types of interface boxes are needed.
