Easy-to-use IO-Link by Murrelektronik

MKV Metal and Impact67 IO-Link fieldbus modules take you directly to where you want to go. They are well suited for integrating IO-Link devices into installation systems. The advantages: fast integration, brief commissioning times, yet maximum flexibility. The basic feature of this easy integration is "˜IODD On Board', an innovative technology by Murrelektronik.

The sensor and actuator parameter data stored in the IODD (IO Device Description) are directly incorporated into the GSDML files of the Murrelektronik MVK Metal and Impact67 fieldbus modules. If these devices, for example IO-Link sensors or valve terminals, are connected, you can access this stored data directly and very conveniently via your control software, with no need for manual parameter setting or special tools.

This simplifies matters, as to date every new IO-Link device had to be integrated into the software individually, a time-consuming process. All of this is proof that it is best to store parameter data in the control. For series machines, this benefit can be multiplied because once created, configurations can be copied and pasted many times to other systems and machine controls.

One particularly interesting aspect is that device parameterisation can already be done on the computer in the office and no longer needs to be performed during machine commissioning on the shop floor. The parameter data is displayed in plain text (and not as HEX value) - this makes it easy to keep track of your data. This also facilitates the validation of machines and systems.

However, the freely configurable modules offer considerable time savings for non-standard machinery as well. The auto-configuration mode makes speedy commissioning a reality, since setting parameters for digital inputs and outputs is eliminated, the channels do as the control system commands.

The IODD of the new Emparro67 hybrid power supply unit from Murrelektronik makes it possible to parameterise the current values of the Mico channels and to exchange a variety of diagnostic data with the control - Murrelektronik's IO-Link master and devices are easy to use.
