IO-Link in production.

The benefits of IO-Link...

Simplicity
Point-to-point connection
without addressing.

Parameter
setting

Automatic parameter setting.

Automated machine adjustment.

Flexible remote parameter setting.

Automatic parameter management.

Cost savings due to offline parameter setting.

...and your advantage with ifm.

Easy replacement of units: can be done


by anyone without special knowledge.

Adjustment to different media and recipes.

Shorter and trouble-free retro-fitting times


ensuring increased machine uptime.

No crawling or climbing required


to set the sensor.

Plug and play unit replacement: can be done


by anyone without special knowledge.

Manufacturer-independent tool
for all IO-Link units.

The benefits of IO-Link...

Measurement
Observing and using sensor
and machine data.

Digital data transmission.

Savings
Cost savings in comparison to
units with analogue signal.

Reduction of sensor versions.

Backwards compatible.

...and your advantage with ifm.

Continuous monitoring of energy efficiency,


condition-based maintenance.

Transfer of measured values (EMC) is more


immune to interference in comparison to
analogue transfer. No conversion losses.

No pipe length calibration. More accurate


measured values allow energy savings due to
more accurate process regulation control.

Reduced spare-parts inventory.

In older installations, IO-Link sensors


can be used as usual via switching or
analogue signal.

IO-Link in production.

The benefits of IO-Link...

Wiring
Standard connection cables
(e.g. M12, M8, unscreened).

Production
Diagnostics.

Plant transparency,
preparation for Industry 4.0.

Protection.

...and your advantage with ifm.

Existing wiring can still be used.

Sensor detects states outside the


normal operating behaviour.
This enables condition-based maintenance
for a higher machine uptime.

Continuous communication from the sensor


to ERP, e.g. SAP.
This allows long-term process optimisation.

Protection against tampering:


operating buttons can be disabled.
