Leuze offers IO-Link via modular principle

Owen (Germany) 

With their IO-Link function modules, the Sensor People at Leuze are introducing a powerful tool for manufacturers and operators: it renders the integration of IO-Link device data into PLC programs significantly easier. Users can simply and quickly transfer the function modules to the control program. Common control systems from manufacturers such as Siemens, Beckhoff, and Rockwell Automation are supported. The innovative modular approach makes reading and writing device parameters significantly easier. The function modules can be downloaded free of charge for all IO-Link products from Leuze.

Fast and reliable integration
Each function module is tailored to an IO-Link sensor from Leuze. The software-based modules save the user’s time. It is no longer necessary to waste time looking for data types, parameter indexes, and process data structures. Possible errors in the integration of IO-Link device data are also prevented. Users can even obtain diagnostic data while the process is running and use them for optimizations. Individual components of the process data are easily accessible thanks to the process data parser function.

Format and recipe changeover during operation
Another advantage for users is the format and recipe change during operation: Recipes stored in the PLC can be switched easily in the sensor by the control program while the process in ongoing. 

Leuze offers the IO-Link function modules as free downloads. Further information is available at www.leuze.com/io-link-fb.
