- Awesome presentation for the benefits of IO-link.
Big cost saving opportunity is to use the IO-link master (usually a couple bucks more than a regular fieldbus m12 block) and run up to two 16pt input blocks from each io-link port. These IO-link 16pt slaves are only a couple hundred bucks and will save huge on high IO count projects.
Also ran into a project recently where analog measurement probes were needed.. we integrated IO-link ‘reed switches' for a negligible additional cost with no hardware or LVDT probe analog cards required.Thanks for your comments !
