IO-Link Master Configuration

Comtrol's IO-Link Master combines the benefits of the IO-Link standard with the popular industrial Modbus TCP and EtherNet/IP™ protocol by providing a gateway that's a streamlined bridge between the field level sensor network and the industrial Modbus TCP and EtherNet/IP™ backbone, making retrofitting or expansion simple.

The IO-Link Master easily installs on a standard DIN rail and incorporates two Fast Ethernet ports, eight IO-Link ports, two DI/DO ports and two DI ports. This product is designed with industrial grade components and redundant power inputs to make it exceptionally reliable for critical applications. The IO-Link Master is easily integrated into a system network, and is compatible with existing and new industrial Ethernet environments.
