IO-Link Competence Centre

A team of experts ready to help you develop projects and support you in Industry 4.0 training

IO-Link is an industrial communication protocol capable of equipping even the simplest products with smart functionality.

However, introducing new technology to a product requires investment and training of specialists that are not only experts in the technology but also the system.
At Duplomatic, since January 2020 these specialists are now recognised, qualified experts, following certification as the only IO-Link Competence Centre in Italy.

WHAT IS IO-LINK?


IO-Link is a digital communication protocol that allows two-way transfer of information to and from devices of a machine or process, standardising the exchange of data and allowing acquisition of additional information, such as that used for diagnostics, supporting management of the machine.

 

 

  • International standard
  • Two-way point-to-point communication
  • Compatible with the majority of fieldbuses
  • Simplified, reduced cabling: unshielded, three or five-conductor cables for transmission of logic and power, and M8 or M12 connectors for all devices

 

IO-Link Network
 

  • Combination of IO-Link and simple digital devices on a single node
  • Parametrisation with on-work system
  • It is possible to group up to 128 I/O signals on a single IO-Link Master
  • Simplification of interface with PLC

Advantages
 

  • Cleaner signals
  • More field data
  • Quick and easy installation including on existing systems
  • Reduced installation and maintenance times and costs

The IO-Link Competence Centre actively promotes the technology across Italy, as well as preparing IO-Link technical specifications, participating directly in projects within the German IO-Link community.
