AUTOMATION FOR MANUFACTURING

IO-Link readout shows data, alarms and messages

Process values, alarms, warnings and QR codes from IO-Link installations can now be viewed on a dedicated display device developed by ifm electronic. The E30391 IO-Link display is connected to an IO-Link master like an actuator, and is controlled via PLC. No special software is needed to configure it.

The display can show four measured values, alarms or text messages simultaneously, as well as free text in four message windows. The colour of the text and background can be used to highlight information. Users can then trigger actions via a PLC or acknowledge messages, using built-in buttons.
