IO-Link Device Validation (Compatible or Identical)
Use Device Validation to make your IO-Link port smart. You can link IO-Link ports to operate only when a compatible or identical IO-Link device is attached. This example illustrates:
- Port 1 – Device Validation set to identical. Identical Device Validation can only function if the IO-Link device contains a serial number.
- Ports 2, 3, and 5 – Device Validation set to compatible, which means these ports only operate if a compatible (same Vendor ID and same Device ID) IO-Link device is attached to the corresponding port.
- Port 4 – after clicking SAVE, this port is configured for compatible device validation
