The IO-Link family of high frequency read/write modules (HF RWMs) with IO-Link interface V 1.1 has been designed for easy, cost-effective integration into existing control systems.
These non-embeddable HF RWMs are available in sizes M18 and M30. When used with a 50 mm diameter tag, they offer maximum read/write distances of 42 mm for the M18 type and 60 mm for the M30 type. They can be operated either as IO-Link devices or in standard I/O mode (SIO) with conditional binary outputs. In stand-alone SIO mode the conditional output switch enables either tag detection or data block comparison.
With two operating modes and simplified plug-and-play installation, these HF RWMs reduce installation costs, typically in the logistics, mechanical engineering and automotive industries.
