What is IO-Link 

IO-Link (IEC61131-9) is an open standard technology that allows the bidirectional data exchange from sensors and devices that support IO-Link and are connected to a master.Thanks to an IO-Link master, data is transmitted over various networks, fieldbuses, or backplane buses, making the data accessible for immediate action or long-term analysis via an industrial information system (PLC, HMI, etc.).
