  • IO-Link solutions
    ifm offers the widest and most consistent product portfolio of IO-Link sensors, masters and software...

  • IO-Link solutions from ifm are:

    • Simple: The sensor parameters can be set from the controller or the master. No crawling or climbing required to set the sensor.

    • Transparent: Many sensors supply measured values to the switching signals via IO-Link. The goal is a constant product quality with less energy and raw material consumption.

    • Reliable: Transmission that is prone to errors and conversion of analogue signals is replaced with digital measured value transmission.

    • Low-cost: Process information, switching status, diagnostic functions are transmitted without loss via a single port to the controller. Expensive analogue signal processing is no longer needed.

    Advantages of IO-Link:

    • No external influence of the signal: data transfer is based on a 24 V signal. Screened cables and associated grounding are no longer necessary.

    • No measured value losses: the entire measured value transmission is digital. Transmission that is prone to errors and conversion of analogue signals is replaced.

    • Easy sensor replacement: all sensor parameters are stored in the master and transferred to the replaced unit.

    • Tamper free: no wrong settings by operators.

    • Identification: only like for like replacement. No wrong sensors accepted.

    • Wire-break detection/diagnostics: wire-break or short-circuit is immediately detected.
