IO-Link - Breakthrough in communication
"Last mile problem"
Sensors and actuators have long been intelligent and capable of providing a wide range of information. But despite the diversity of available configurations and interface technologies, what has been missing to date has been an economical solution to address the issue of continuous communication down to the lowest field level. With IO-Link, a standardized interface will be available in the future with the ability to make this type of information easily accessible using conventional 2/3 wire standard parallel wiring.
