Long-term Cost Reductions with IO-Link

Planning

  • Economies of scale due to reduced interface complexity and number of control inputs
  • Fewer options reduce ordering and administrative costs
  • Lower volume of spare parts kept in stock
  • Greater flexibility, lower planning costs


Installation and commissioning

Installation and commissioning
Installation and commissioning
  • Reduced installation and commissioning times
  • Save costs on components du to standardized interface
  • Simplified configuration, parameterization, and diagnosis due to uniform range of tools
  • Short commissioning times: flexible on-site or central commissioning

Operation

Operation
Operation
  • Simultaneous transfer of switching information, measured values, and status information
  • Evaluation of measured values locally at the sensor or centrally in the PLC
  • Access to diagnostic information during normal operation
  • Requirement-oriented maintenance prevents system downtime
  • Intelligent parameter administration enables parameter changes within seconds

Maintenance

Maintenance
Maintenance
  • Access to diagnostic information during normal operation
  • Preventive maintenance for reduced downtime
  • Localization function and central parameter storage enables quick, targeted sensor replacement
  • Automated reparameterization shortens system downtime
  • SIO mode allows backwards compatibility with standard digital input/binary sensor
