Master

The distributed I/O system SIMATIC ET 200 and the controller S7-1200 integrate the quick and easy IO-Link communication of sensors and actuators into the established fieldbus systems PROFIBUS and PROFINET – and thus into Totally Integrated Automation with master modules:

The SIMATIC ET 200 SP, ET 200AL and S7-1200  IO-Link Master are based on the current IO-Link specification V1.1, which enables the consistent storage of the IO-Link device parameters in the master. This means that when a device is being replaced, the current parameters are automatically transferred to the new IO-Link device – without additional effort by the user. The special feature of the SIMATIC ET 200SP IO-Link Master module: not only the device parameters are saved automatically, but also the master parameters. This makes replacing a module, whether master or device, possible without a programming device and without backing up the data


Product-specific IO-Link advantages

  • Seamless integration of IO-Link-certified sensors and actuators into TIA

  • Standardized engineering from master to device – all data in one S7 project

  • PtP communication with IO-Link-certified devices by Siemens and from the field

  • Transparent, central diagnostics for all IO-Link devices

  • Master available in two protection classes (IP20/IP65)

  • Transparent depiction of all field device parameters

  • Dynamic changing of the parameters directly by the controller

  • Easy function mapping in STEP 7 through freely available function block

  • Firmware updates directly over the fieldbus

The configuration of the IO-Link channels is performed with the Port Configurator Tool “S7-PCT”, which is integrated into the STEP 7 Engineering or as stand-alone tool.
