Analog devices with IO-Link

Balluff: A new family of single channel, analog interface modules simplifies configuration and integration of analog devices by interfacing with IO-Link. Because analog devices are widely used in factory automation controls architectures, these modules can save valuable time and resources.



Balluff is introducing four second-generation, single channel analog-to-IO-Link interface modules used to convert a variety of analog input data such as current, voltage, and RTD/thermocouple measurement to digital equivalent values. And having IO-Link onboard enhances diagnostic information available. The new modules are: analog input conversion of input data like current, voltage and RTDs; analog input for temperature measurement sensors, Type J, Type K, or RTDs; analog output module with voltage or current output configuration; and universal analog module, configure as either an analog input or analog output.

These modules further simplify installations by eliminating analog in-chassis interface boards and reducing additional analog network blocks. IO-Link lets users replace lengthy shielded cable runs with basic unshielded cables.
