IO-Link – breakthrough sensor communication seminar gives an introduction to the new IO-Link sensor communication technology, the newly defined standard in the lower field level and useful advices for the development of device developers, product managers, and decision makers. In the past few months, leading automation manufacturers have developed the specifications and the IEC Standardization is imminent. IO-link enables it to bind simple digital sensors to control systems and thus to take advantage of industrial communication.
