reasons Six Million Over 6 million sensors with IO-Link capability built in from ifm electronic are already in use. Fieldbus modules from ifm can unlock the full capability of the sensors you already have on plant. Some of the benefits of using IO-Link are…. Correct process value – Digital transmission of the measured value; 23.3° at the sensor = 23.3° at the PLC without conversion losses. Stable signal - Data transfer uses an interference- free 24 V signal. Screened cables and analogue input cards belong in the past. Error-free set-up and operation - set devices remotely and disable potentiometers or pushbuttons; change recipe easily. Device identification – interrogate device to ensure correct type; prevent down time due to incorrect unit. IO-Link from ifm electronic – from sensor to SAP www.ifm.com/uk to use
