Do you want to significantly reduce your wiring costs? Then use our ASi solutions and the two-conductor ASi cable, which transmits power and data simultaneously. The cost advantage over round cable solutions with conventional M12 or 7/8" connectors can be as high as 68 percent, check out more details on our cost comparison.
Using the function-independent IO-Link protocol, you can connect a wide variety of intelligent sensors and actuators. Thanks to ASi, you only need one cable and have absolutely no restrictions on topology. The IO-Link devices are connected to the ASi-5 interface via our IO-Link masters – for example, in IP20 to a 4-port master in a control cabinet, or in the field in IP67 to a 4-, 2- or 1-port IO-Link master.

If you only want to integrate one IO-Link device at a single position, our compact 1-port master is your ideal choice. With it, you can also connect individual IO-Link devices at any location easily and cost-effectively – distributed over the entire ASi cable length of up to 200 meters.
Here we will give you several examples as to how easy it is to parameterize the IO-Link devices.
