Integrating IO-Link devices in Profinet

22 March 2019

Turck's Simple IO-Link Device Integration (SIDI) aims to simplify the handling of IO-Link devices in Profinet engineering systems.

As the devices are already integrated in the GSDML file of the master, users can select the devices from the device library (for example in the TIA Portal) and integrate them into projects via drop-down fields as if the devices are submodules on a modular I/O system. 

The user benefits from access to all device properties and parameters in plain text. Measuring ranges, switch points and pulse rates can be set directly from the engineering system – without any programming or additional software required.
SIDI is now integrated on all Turck IO-Link masters of the TBEN-L, TBEN-S and FEN20 series. The software contains all the IO-Link devices from both Turck and Banner Engineering. IO-Link devices from other third-party manufacturers, such as valve blocks, are also included.
