IO-Link closes the gap in communication on the last steps to the processConsistent 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.
