Smart factories are an important part of the Internet of Things (IoT). The term IoT describes the technologies that connect objects—from consumer electronics to industrial components—to the internet. Meanwhile, the Industrial Internet of Things (or IIoT) refers specifically to the impact of this innovation on industrial applications.
In recent years IO-Link systems have become widespread within industrial automation. IO-Link is an open standard serial communication protocol that allows for the bi-directional exchange of data from IO-Link supported sensors that are also connected through a master.
There are many advantages to using an IO-Link system including standardized wiring, remote configuration, simple device replacement, advanced diagnostics, and increased data availability. Because IO-Link systems are open standard, the devices can be integrated in almost any fieldbus or automation system.
