What is IO-Link?

What is IO-Link?Comtrol recently debuted its IO-Link Master EIP-4 at SPS IPC DRIVES in Nürnberg, Germany, and the demo and show were a success! The IO-Link master EIP-4 combines the benefits of the IO-Link standard with the EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP protocols.  The IO-Link Master effectively shields the PLC programmers from the IO-Link complexities by handling those complexities itself.  The result is simplified EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP interfaces, which decreases system development time and installation efforts.

Industrial Ethernet Book has named Comtrol’s IO-Link Master one of the Top 5 New Products 2012 in their December issue of Industrial Networks News!

Comtrol is part of the IO-Link consortium, which has created a goal to “develop and market IO-Link as a technology.” This video helps explain, “What is IO-Link?”
