IO-Link is becoming the new worldwide standard for sensor and actor communication in the world of automation. Many well known system suppliers as well as sensor and actor vendors support the new standard and offer IO-Link masters and devices. IO-Link can be easily integrated into existing field bus systems like e.g. PROFIBUS, Interbus, ProfiNet, AS-Interface, EtherCAT, etc.
The test confirms the extended benefits that FDT technology brings to configuration and maintenance of intelligent field devices
FDT Group releases specifications for Profinet I/O and Modbus communication applications, enhancing our position as the solution of choice for vendor independent integration of devices and systems.
