IO-Link Integration Part 1 for PROFIBUS and PROFINET

The IO-Link consortium within PI has been developing a point-to-point digital communication technology mainly for sensors and actuators in factory automation, which are using nowadays many more optical, magnetic, capacitive, radio-based, and other effects in conjunction with very small and cost-effective micro-controllers (IO-Link Communication Specification). The IO-Link device manufacturers are striving for a general integration strategy for the most important fieldbus systems with the smallest impact on the logistics of their IO-Link devices. It is the objective of this specification to describe an examplary integration solution into PROFIBUS and PROFINET for the counterpart of an IO-Link device, the IO-Link master.
