- Eight safe digital inputs with two test pulses
- Four safe digital outputs up to 2 A
- Safe communication over EtherCAT (FSoE)
- TÜV-certified for the highest safety requirements up to SIL 3/PL e
- Significant space savings in the control cabinet with the modularly combinable I/O system
- Reduced wiring time with Push-in Technology

Axioline Smart Element features
All Axioline Smart Elements feature Push-in connection technology throughout for the particularly fast connection of signals.
Axioline Smart Elements can be integrated into various solution concepts via the system-independent interface.
Axioline Smart Elements can be plugged easily into carrier modules with a suitable interface. Removal is child’s play thanks to a simple unlocking mechanism.
Application in the Axioline F I/O remote I/O system
Within an Axioline F station, you can combine classic Axioline F modules with Axioline F backplanes including the Axioline Smart Elements in any way. You can therefore operate Axioline Smart Elements on already-existing Axioline F bus couplers or Axiocontrol controllers, such as PLCnext Control devices or classic PLCs.
The specially developed Axioline F backplanes feature four and six Smart Elements slots. With this flexibility, you can plug the Axioline Smart Elements into any position in the Axioline F backplane. The two-row design of the backplane enables an enormous reduction in the overall width of the I/O station.

Axioline E – one product family, a wide range of functions
The features at a glance
The new generation of Axioline E devices are highly robust with their IP65/IP67 degree of protections and a fully-cast zinc die-cast housing.
Because of their outstanding resistance to EMI and the robust mechanics, you can minimize downtimes in your system with these devices.
Due to their extended temperature range and their strong resistance to environmental influences, common cooling and greasing agents, and welding beads, they can be used in many different applications.
The M12 Duo contour allows flexible field wiring with proven M12 screw connectors or the new M12 push-pull fast-connection technology.
Featuring tool-free assembly, the M12 push-pull fast-connection technology saves 80% of cabling time in comparison to the proven M12 screw connectors, and saves two minutes per device. Feedback via the latching of the connection plug as well as a tension test ensure high protection against errors during assembly.
The Axioline E devices of the new generation feature a high-performance L-coded voltage supply with 2x 16 A and can be used over significantly longer cable distances without additional feed-in cables.
You can also set up IO-Link substructures with minimum cabling effort and without additional feed-in cables with the high-performance IO-Link master ports with up to 2 A at L+ and up to 4 A at UA.
Our Axioline E-IO-Link clients of the new generation comply with IO-Link specification 1.1.3. With an I/O-Link master cycle time of <500 µs, they complete their information exchange with the connected IO-Link devices four times faster than commercially available first-generation IO-Link masters.
With their configuration options for connected IO-Link devices, the devices enable optimized integration into your automation system.
Configure any connected IO-Link devices in the PLCnext Technology automation system by simply integrating the IODD into your engineering system.
By importing the IODD, the mapping of an IO-Link device in the engineering system is identical to that of a PROFINET device. The device parameters from the IODD are automatically converted into startup parameters and downloaded during device startup together with the startup parameters of the PROFINET devices.

I/O system for process-oriented applications
Axioline P features at a glance
The Axioline P remote I/O system guarantees maximum availability for your application. With S2 redundancy, two PROFINET controllers can communicate with the I/O station at the same time.
When used in a Modbus TCP network, redundant communication can also be implemented using separate bus couplers, each with their own IP address.
The hot-swap-capable local bus enables the replacement of existing modules from an Axioline P I/O station without having to switch off the system. The electromechanical design of the bus socket means that you can actually remove several modules from the station simultaneously, even without disrupting local bus communication.
The intrinsically safe I/O modules can be installed in zone 2 and are suitable for the use of sensors as well as actuators up to zone 0. They feature HART communication and NAMUR functionality, making them particularly suitable for process automation applications.
Standard modules can be combined with intrinsically safe modules particularly easily in the Axioline P I/O system. By positioning a partition plate (available as an accessory), the blue intrinsically safe modules can be added to the end of a station.
With the power supply integrated into each I/O module, the setup of an Axioline P station does not require an additional power supply. Furthermore, hot-swap capability is established when modules are removed due to the permanently live bus sockets.
The modular station communicates with a PROFINET controller, for example a distributed control system (DCS), via a bus coupler. As an option, you can connect up to eight PROFIBUS PA segments to the individual proxy outlets in a compact way. To ensure the individual segments are immune to interference, appropriate shield connection technology is available. PROFIBUS PA sensors are connected directly to the modular Axioline P proxy.
Proven fieldbus technology, such as HART and Modbus/RTU, can therefore be integrated into PROFINET networks. This is done using PROFIBUS PA gateways that are connected to the modular Axioline P proxy.
Connection through to zone 0
Axioline P devices can be connected directly to a distributed control system (DCS) in the form of a remote I/O system. PROFINET S2 system redundancy is supported, which ensures very reliable communication between the I/O station and DCS.
The Axioline P system can be installed in zone 2, and allows a direct connection of sensor and actuator signals from zones 2, 1, and 0. The portfolio includes important functions for process automation, such as analog input and output modules for HART communication as well as digital input modules for connecting NAMUR sensors.
This allows you to integrate intrinsically safe modules into the I/O station without additional components.
