IO-Link at field level

With IO-Link on the field level, the multitude of sensor interfaces can be reduced noticeably. Dissimilar interfaces on sensors become dispensable through the employment of a consistent IO-Link interface. It does not only simplify the variety of interfaces of sensors and IO-periphery, but also the variety of connecting cables required. Multipole-cables can be replaced with an unshielded standard cable. The complexity of wiring and installation can be reduced significantly through IO-Link.

SIMATIC IO-Link Master

The SIMATIC IO-Link master modules 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

I/O modules for IO Link

The compatibility of IO-Link also permits the connection of standard sensor/actuator technology. This is done particularly economically with the IO-Link I/O modules that permit the simultaneous connection of several sensors/actuators to the controller over one cable.


The new RFID system SIMATIC RF 200 IO-Link has been designed for simple identification tasks, such as the reading of identification numbers or any user data. The devices can be used in small assembly lines or in production logistics and intralogistics.
