IO-Link enabled network blocks

15 February 2021

Carlo Gavazzi has launched the IO-Link Y series of IIoT-enabled network blocks which allow up to eight smart devices to connect to higher-level control systems.

IO-Link Y master YL212 is said to enable the connection of all sections of a plant into a single industrial network, from the management level right down to the field level. Using the embedded webserver and IO-Link Device Description (IODD) Y series IO-Link masters can provide integration, communication and direct data exchange between different fieldbuses using communication protocols such as Ethernet/IP, Modbus/TCP, OPC UA or Profinet IO.

The YN115 DIN rail version is suited to control cabinet installation and includes pluggable/removable push-in and screw terminal connectors for a quick and error-proof installation of the IO-Link devices and modules.  

The integrated web server is available in seven languages, and the IODD interpreter provides access, configuration and diagnostic of the module and the attached IO-Link devices via a web browser.  The inbuilt OPC-UA architecture allows data transmission on many platforms enabling remote assessment from PC’s, tablets or smartphones, without the need for any additional software or a PLC.
