Firstly, what is IO-Link?IO-Link
IO-Link is a standardised IO technology (IEC 61131-9) for communication with sensors and also actuators. The powerful point-to-point communication is based

Secondly, how do we integrate with this technology? on 3-wire sensor and actuator connection without additional requirements regarding the cable material.

AMETEK Land’s range of SPOT and System 4 Thermometers, and the new LMG MKII processor can be integrated easily into systems which use IO-Link communication technology. By using AMETEK Land IO-Communication Adapters, analog bi-directional communication can be achieved.

The 4 to 20 mA output signal from the thermometer can be transmitted via IO-Link and integrated into your process control system. Additionally, a 4 to 20 mA signal such as an emissivity or reference temperature value can be input to your SPOT or System 4 thermometers.
