On all automation levels there is a demand for systematic diagnostics concepts and for efficient handling of parameter data. It is essential that sensors and switching devices are integrated in the automation network. New scope is available with IO Link, the innovative interface for the last few meters to the process.
Consistent automation is only possible with sensors and actuators. The smart connection of sensors and substations to the control level ensures precise and profitable production. The communication standard IO-Link is ideally suited to this purpose. Integrating all components is simplified by IO-Link in switchboards and IO-Link on the field level. They ensure maximal consistency and efficiency on the last steps to the process and thereby seamless communication.
Using the example of two applications in the solar and food industry, Siemens shows how IO-Link solutions can be put to practice.
