IO-Link Integration for PROFINET
PROFINET , IO-Link
It is the purpose of this document to map the IO-Link technology according to IEC 61131-9 into PROFINET in such a manner that the user benefit is maximized through standardization.
From a PROFINET point of view this can be achieved through pursuing the following objectives:
• IO-Link mechanisms should be transformed into PROFINET mechanisms to hide the differences as much as possible ("virtual PROFINET devices");
• "Look & Feel" of the deviations should be harmonized across manufacturer borders through standardization;
• It should be possible to use one of the IO-Link Tools (PDCTs) for several IO-Link Masters from different manufacturers/brands through standardized interfaces to the Masters.
