Balluff Inc.

The IO-Link system from Balluff Inc., Florence, KY, enables quick and easy expansion or simplification of Profibus and Profinet networks. The expansion module attaches directly to the Profibus or Profinet network, either as a new node or by substituting it for an existing node. Then you attach up to 4 intelligent IO-Link sensors using standard 3-conductor M12 cordsets. Hardware includes network expansion modules, sensor hubs, standard 3-conductor M12 cordsets, standard sensors, and IO-Link sensors. Sensors are available in a range of different sensing technologies, including distance feedback, RFID, and pressure monitors. Sensor hubs allow connection of 16 standard discrete sensors to the network per hub.
