WAGO’s New IO-Link Converter

IO-Link Converter

WAGO’s new IO-Link Converter is a 4-20 mA analog input with a digital display incorporating analog signals into a digital communication network for sensors and actuators from the field into an IO-Link-capable system.

The Analog/IO-Link Converter provides an economical, compact solution for easily incorporating conventional analog sensors and actuators into an IO-Link-capable system like the WAGO I/O System Field, depending on their type. This allows reliable, cost-effective, interference-immune acquisition and output of analog signals. Digital communication can easily be introduced (retrofitted) when old systems are modernized. The converter can be configured directly on the device via IO-Link. A compact design, IP67 protection and the high operating temperature range make the Analog/IO-Link Converter ideal for automation without control cabinets.

The product is used for evaluation of an analog signal, a connected sensor or another device with an analog output. The product has one analog current input and two outputs. Output 1 is digital, and output 2 can optionally be used as analog current output.

The product can be operated in stand-alone mode and IO-Link mode.

Application:

  • Decentralized display, preprocessing and conversion of analog signals

Use as an IO-Link device:

The device has an IO-Link communication interface that requires an IO-Link-capable module (IO-Link master) for interoperation.

The IO-Link interface allows direct access to the process and diagnostic data and enables setting of the device parameters during operation.

Use as a stand-alone device without IO-Link:

The device compares the measured current value with the set parameters and switches the output according to the selected function.

This mode is without IO-Link functionality. Parameterization is performed either via the push ring or with the WAGO IO-Link Configurator.
