Comtrol’s IO-Link Master EIP-4 – ISDU Handling
In case you missed it, we recently published a post explaining IO-Link technology along with an overview of our IO-Link Master EIP-4 product. As more people learn about the benefits of IO-Link, the more questions we get about our master’s features. Here are some of the features explained below.
One of the features explained is how Comtrol’s IO-Link Master EIP-4 eliminates complex and lengthy PLC programming for process data and ISDU handling (sometimes known as SPDU).
The Comtrol IO-Link Master provides a flexible and simplified ISDU interface with the following features:
- Multiple or single ISDU command message support
- Blocking and non-blocking messaging methods
- Flexible PLC ISDU message formatting – each message can contain a single command, multiple commands with the same data area size, or multiple commands with varying data area sizes
