DESCRIPTION
IO-Link is a fieldbus independent and manufacturer independent communication standard and can be integrated into any existing fieldbus via a corresponding interface. This fieldbus independence allowed the creation of a corresponding specification by the IO-Link community, which has already been published by the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) as IEC 61131-9 (International Standard).
IO-Link is the first standardised IO technology worldwide (IEC 61131-9) for the communication with sensors and also actuators. The powerful point-to-point communication is based on the long established 3-wire sensor and actuator connection without additional requirements regarding the cable material. So, IO-Link is no fieldbus but the further development of the existing, tried-and-tested connection technology for sensors and actuators.
