IO-Link technology has a new web presence. The new website (www.io-link.com) focuses on the benefits of this interesting industrial automation technology and establishes a central information source for all interested parties. The newly designed download area provides access to all important documents about IO-Link, such as written specifications, technical descriptions, and presentations. Interesting application examples illustrate the possible application areas.
Interested parties can contact IO-Link member companies directly online. Refer to the “About us” page for primary contact data and links to each manufacturer.
The complete web presence is oriented to the new motto “USE IO-Link”. USE is an acronym for Universal, Smart, and Easy. IO-Link is universal, because it is fieldbus-neutral and standardized and is thus always compatible. It is smart because its interface is functional, fast, and reliable, and it is easy because its implementation is based on existing standards. IO-Link enables access to comprehensive parameters and diagnostic data. It is thus very easy to adapt sensors and actuators during operation to the task at hand. Parameter data are saved consistently within the automation system. IO-Link is easy and always fits.
