The B&R X20DS438A master module with IP20 protection and the X67DS438A master module with IP67 protection for use outside the control cabinet employ IO-Link 1.1 to communicate digitally with 4 intelligent field devices. The IO-Link communication standard covers the final stretch from the I/O module to individual sensors and actuators to exchange parameter data and diagnostic information. The modules intelligently integrate sensors and switching devices into the control level and complement industrial real-time Ethernet POWERLINK technology.
