Any combinations possible in just one module
These IO-Link modules allow connection of conventional digital and analogue sensors as well as digital actuators to IO-Link. To do so, the modules feature 8 flexible ports that can be configured independently: as digital inputs and outputs, as analogue input (4...20 mA or 0...10 V). This unique capability to freely configure in any combination of analogue and digital ports in one module saves cost. You only need one free IO-Link port on the controller.
Heavy-duty outputs for actuators
The powerful switching outputs of the PerformanceLine versions can switch currents up to 2 A (16 A per module). The electrical separation between supply voltage and IO-Link communication provides maximum protection.
Advantages and customer benefits
Cyclical or acyclical port configuration
A key feature of the multiport modules from ifm is the flexibility of port configuration. The user can define a cyclical or an acyclical version via the selection of the respective device ID via IO-Link. This allows a cyclical or an acyclical configuration of the function of each port on the module (AI, DI, DO).
