From the IO-Link sensor into the cloud

The EP6228-3142 IO-Link module enables connection of up to eight IO-Link devices, e.g. IO-Link box modules, actuators, sensors or combinations thereof. The EP6228-3142 has 4 x Class A and 4 x Class B ports. The Class B ports provide an additional supply voltage for IO-Link devices with higher power requirements. The EP6228-3142 additionally offers further digital inputs on the four Class A master ports. A point-to-point connection is used between the module and the device. The terminal is parameterized via the EtherCAT master. IO-Link is designed as an intelligent link between the fieldbus level and the sensor, wherein parameterization information can be exchanged bidirectionally via the IO-Link connection. The parameterization of the IO-Link devices can be done from TwinCAT via ADS or very conveniently via the integrated IO-Link configuration tool.

In the standard setting, the eight IO-Link channels of the EP6228-3142 operate as an 8-channel input module, 24 V DC, which communicates with connected IO-Link devices as required, parameterises them and, if necessary, changes their operating mode. Each IO-Link port can optionally be used as a pure input or output.

The 7/8" power supply connectors offer an increased total current of the EtherCAT Box so that all IO-Link ports can be operated with maximum current.
