Machine Connectivity and Integration – Field Connectivity


Field connectivity involves the connection of all field devices to central machine control. This includes the easy integration of sensors via standardized I/O interfaces in order to connect the field level to the superordinate control level.

Benefits and values of IO-Link

  • Reduced Effort: easy and time-efficient planning and comissionsing of the machine
  • Easy Replacement: save time and money in device replacement scenarios as downtimes can be resolved faster
  • Risk error minimization: through less error-prone parameterization during commissioning
