WE CONNECT HUMAN ACTIONS WITH IO-LINK

The direction in automation is clear: more networking and data, less complexity. That’s why IO-LINK has become established as a standardized, fully bus-independent interface at sensor and actuator level. At RAFI, we are dedicated to maintaining our reputation as a technology leader and actively supporting our partners on their journey into the future.

Our IO-LINK products offer a smooth entry into this field. You can quickly integrate these products into your existing environment using standardized M12 plugs. Our control and signaling units are easy to connect and individually parameterize, giving you countless possibilities. With the TILTED DIAMOND+ and E-BOX versions of IO-LINK, you are equipped today for tomorrow’s challenges.

ADVANTAGES

PLUG. SET. PLAY. REPEAT.

Plug & Play

  • The M12 terminal facilitates rapid assembly and commissioning

  • No need to worry: Thanks to IO-LINK, our portfolio is bus-independent and can be integrated in all field buses worldwide
  • The minimal wiring work saves you time and money
  • No need to manufacture expensive special connectors
  • Lower personnel costs: Mistakes during wiring are not possible, so even untrained employees can perform installation

Convenient parameterization

  • Reduced product variety: Parameterize the color, brightness, and flashing modes of the key switch with ease via the control unit
  • Simple replacement: Stored parameters are automatically transferred to new devices
  • World innovation: The first control box available with IO-LINK

Reliable and safe

  • Retrievable device diagnosis data enables predictive maintenance
  • Fewer maintenance errors thanks to device identification: Incorrectly installed devices are reported to the control unit

Cost-effective in all areas

  • The system designer can refer to standards and respond flexibly to customer wishes for specific key switch colors, lighting modes, and labeling
  • Parameterization is applicable for all versions. This means fewer products for your Purchasing department to manage, and early achievement of economies of scale
  • Fewer products means less storage space and capital tie-up
  • With the parameterization and reduced work for commissioning and assembly, production can remain the same for all different machine types
  • Management benefits from optimized processes, reduced downtimes, and greater system availability
  • Customer Service works faster, with fewer mistakes, and benefits from the standardized hardware in spare parts logistics. Predictive maintenance is also possible
  • Simple wiring with an unshielded, three-core cable saves time and money
  • The diagnosis function enables the production line foreman to identify and remedy mistakes quickly
