The Comtrol IO-Link Master supports remote communications from a PLC and/or HMI to an IO-Link device so that you can change an IO-Link device’s configuration or operational behavior.
In addition, you can change an IO-Link device’s configuration using the Comtrol IO-Link Master web interface without a PLC or HMI.
- Dynamic reconfiguration of sensor and actuator properties such as distance read range, attenuation, or code library
- Reconfigure IO-Link devices in hard-to-reach or hazardous areas
- Dramatically extend the diversity and duty cycle to get more use out of capital which was previously idle at times
