For quick and easy connection and configuration of IO-Link sensors via the USB interface on a computer, Pepperl+Fuchs offers an IO-Link USB master. Sensors can be integrated into an FDT user interface, such as PACTware® software, and parameterized outside the plant, directly via the IODD interpreter.
Using the IODD interpreter, individual IO-Link sensors are cloned easily, by transferring the configuration and parameterization data from one sensor to another. Extensive diagnostic options are also available during the setup process. For example, the data, stability, and functional reserve of a sensor signal can be checked and adjusted. The IO-Link USB master therefore offers the possibility to perform simple configuration and parameterization of IO-Link sensors outside the plant.
