  1. Some additions:
    – It is possible to use repeaters if the distance is more then 20m. Look at IFM E30444. The 20m limit was for me the biggest backdraw to use IO-link.
    – Rockwell also has IO link mastcards and sensors: the 1734-4IOL and 1732E-8IOLM12R. Search for “iolink-br001_-en-p.pdf” for more info.
    – People using IFM products probably altready have IO-link sensor without knowing it. A lot of IFM products come factory standard with IO-link.
