IO-Link masters with OPC UA interface

09 December 2019

Pepperl+Fuchs believes it is the first company to offer IO-Link masters with an OPC UA interface, helping to pave the way for end-to-end, transparent, and seamless communication from field level to the cloud.

The company has achieved this goal through acquisition of Comtrol Corporation, a pioneer in the field of Ethernet-based industrial communication and a provider of IO-Link masters. 

According to Pepperl+Fuchs, the combining of OPC UA and IO-Link opens up new possibilities for end-to-end, transparent, and seamless communication from the lowest field level to the cloud. If IO-Link functions as the interface for the identification, diagnostics, and parameter data from the sensor technology, OPC UA provides a solution for transmitting this data to PC or cloud-based systems in full and in parallel with time-critical control communication.
