Sensors with IO-Link interface

It is not a question of whether one needs to intensively address digitization in the various branches of industry, but rather of when: the digital transformation affects all sectors nearly without exception. Digitization is a mega-trend and for the area of sensors, IO-Link technology in particular is an important driving force as it provides an intelligent, decentralized interface for highly efficient, seamless digital communication on all levels of a production system in the sense of comprehensive networking.


This white paper offers an overview of the potential of IO-Link in the area of sensor technology and concludes with a presentation of the broad product range of IO-Link solutions from ipf electronic. ipf electronic is constantly expanding the selection of devices with IO-Link interface. In this context, it is therefore not possible to describe in detail all IO-Link functionalities and features of every device series or specific sensor type, as this would be beyond the scope of the white paper. To start, first some general information about IO-Link, the system architecture and functionality.
