Exchange data consistently with IO-Link – from the controller down to the lowest field level.
Make the most of all the options offered by IO-Link: the point-to-point connection enables you to exchange both process data and service data between the connection and sensor/actuator.
The IO-Link master from Phoenix Contact is available with IP20 and IP67 protection both for modular systems and those with a block design.
In contrast to control cabinet installations, considerably fewer analog signals/special signals are required in field installations.
Nevertheless, in order to fulfill the demand for non-digital signals while keeping up with the trend for using IO-Link-compatible actuators and sensors, a highly-functional IO-Link master is included in the portfolio of Axioline E Series for each network.
In combination with the IO-Link/analog converters of the Axioline E series, this results in a perfect solution for the multifaceted applications of analog signals.
Moreover, it opens up significant potential for reducing the installation costs: an IO-Link/analog converter can either be directly connected to or placed in the immediate vicinity of the analog sensor. This significantly reduces or even completely eliminates the need for expensive, shielded cables between an analog sensor and I/O device (in this case the IO-Link master).
In line with the slogan “One device, numerous possibilities”, the above image shows the varied application possibilities of an Axioline E series IO-Link master.
The following functions can be used via the IO-Link master by using the various operating modes of an IO-Link port:
With the multi-functional IO-Link ports, an IO-Link master becomes a universal I/O device.
Compressed air is one of the most expensive production resources in existence. Compressed air meters from Phoenix Contact enable you to optimize the use of this costly resource. By using compressed air efficiently, you can decrease compressor usage and therefore reduce energy costs.
The calorimetric measuring procedure records even the smallest consumption rates. You can detect wear or leaks based on the amount of air consumed.
Use compressed air meters to acquire the following values:
