Rockwell Automation's IO-Link Master brings smart diagnostics to industrial environments

Manufacturers and industrial operators can access detailed sensor diagnostics in harsh operating environments using the IP67-rated, Allen-Bradley ArmorBlock IO-Link master from Rockwell Automation.

The IO-Link master stores up to 40 timestamps of sensor events on each channel. This event history can help users track changes and diagnose issues. These diagnostics can reduce issue-resolution time, improve preventive maintenance and optimize overall system performance. The on-machine option requires only a single cable from the cabinet, reducing the number and length of cable runs and potential failure points.

The ArmorBlock IO-Link master includes connectivity for up to eight IO-Link sensors. The master and sensors share an IP address, helping end users reduce the cost and time to commission equipment.
