Network portfolio for industrial automation
Balluff’s CC-Link IE field is a 1GBPS network for industrial automation. The network portfolio consists of IP67 protection rated machine mount I/O devices and IO-Link masters. The distributed modular architecture utilizes IO-Link to support the controls architecture while integrating smart devices into the architecture. IO-Link is the sensor-actuator communication standard specified in IEC61131-9 and utilizes standard M12 sensor cables for communication of process data, parameter data, and events on the same line. The CC-Link IE Field network module with 8 IO-Link ports can host up to 8 IO-Link smart devices including RFID, SmartLights, flow or measurement sensors, or analog I/O. Or the module could host up to 240 configurable discrete I/O points.
