IO-Link is a powerful field I/O protocol capable of handling traditional field I/O along with diagnostic data from intelligent field devices including device health, configured parameters, and performance.

IO-Link master modules are the interface between field devices and higher-level controllers/information systems, and they also control data traffic between the connected devices. Two IO-Link master modules are now available that convert IO-Link signals to/from EtherNet/IP, OPC UA, and MQTT.

  • •The STRIDE IO-Link master will convert IO-Link data to EtherNet/IP messages (and vice-versa) so you can easily gain better insight into system performance using a well-established fieldbus protocol
  • •The Murrelektronik Premium master module provides the same advantages as the lower-cost STRIDE version, with the added capabilities of OPC and MQTT

IO-Link hubs are also available with up to 16 multifunctional DIO channels that allow standard sensors and actuators to connect to an IO-Link master using a single cable. IO-Link hubs provide an economical solution for a highly decentralized installation.

A variety of IO-Link capable photoelectric and proximity sensors are available that provide signal data as well as internal diagnostics for better insight into sensor performance. IO-Link master modules will also work with any 3rd party IO-Link-capable sensor/actuator.

IO-Link master modules start at $290.00 and hubs start at $180.00 , with a 2-year warranty provided for both. IO-Link enabled sensors start at $15.50 with select models offering a limited lifetime warranty. IO-Link master modules, hubs, and their connected sensors/actuators are easily integrated with Productivity PLCs using task libraries available in the Productivity Suite programming software.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
