The unit as master gateway is available in two versions: for installation in a control cabinet (protection class IP20) or for direct mounting on the robot flange (IP54). Both versions are designed to connect two IO-Link components and can program individual component parameters. In this process, they continuously support the implementation of the digital I/O to IO-Link bus protocol. When configuring the settings, they also require a temporary Ethernet connection. Thus, despite the relatively limited capabilities of many robots regarding the digital I/O transmission infrastructure, it is possible to use virtually all functions of the company’s IO-Link components. “guideZ” is a software tool for the quick and easy commissioning of components; it enables user-guided implementation and commissioning for really everyone. In this process, users can switch between wizard or beginner mode and expert mode. Parameter data from this seven-step commissioning process can be adapted quickly and easily to any PLC command or even small commands.
