IO-Link Master Solution

IO-Link is a serial communication protocol that connects sensors and actuators to remote I/O or programmable logic controllers (PLCs) in factory automation. This solution is an easy-to-use gateway development kit for the IO-Link protocol. It connects up to eight IO-Link sensors or actuators and supports industrial Ethernet communication controlled by an Arm® Cortex®-A7 microprocessor. 

System Benefits

  • Built-in IO-Link hardware frame handler significantly improves application performance 
  • Temperature and supply voltage monitoring and protection 
  • Overload protection for channels and connected devices 
  • Optimized for up to 8-port IO-Link master applications 
  • Optional secure boot function 

Target Applications

  • Industrial Ethernet/IO-Link network 
  • Industrial automation 
    • Sensors 
    • Actuators 
    • Hubs
