IO-Link

IO-Link is a technology that connects sensors and actuators to industrial Ethernet using digital signals. Various types of data can be exchanged at the sensor level in line with the IIoT. Fastus is a product brand of OPTEX FA.

IO-Link Master - UR Series

Highly functional IO-Link Master for various industrial Ethernet

  • First in industry* Mixed connection of digital Sink(NPN) / Source(PNP) I/O devices is realized with one unit
  • Largest no. in industry* 16 channels
  • Fastest in industry* Realized the minimum cycle time of 0.3 ms

*Regarding IO-Link Master, surveyed by OPTEX FA in November, 2021.

Benefits

Maximum number of channels at minimum cost

I/O devices require various units such as A/D converters depending on the interface, but on-site I/O devices can be combined to significantly reduce costs with our IO-Link Master and IO-Link Hub.

Unit that converts 1 CH of IO-Link ports in IO-Link Master to 16-point of digital I/O:

  • UR-DS16D
  • UR-DS16T
  • UR-DS8D8T

Unit that converts 1 CH of IO-Link ports in IO-Link Master to 4 CH of analog I/O:

  • UR-DS4AD
