This is a complete sensor slave reference solution for temperature controllers, transmitters, data loggers, etc. For IO-Link applications, sensing parameter settings can be done through the IO-Link tool on a PC connected to the user’s IO-Link master board. The slave board will be expanded as a universal board, which will be able to connect with various MCU evaluation boards, some RS-485 interfaces, and a controller area network (CAN) with industrial fieldbus. Each connection is independent and the user can select the appropriate connection for their application.

These can be realized by using the RX23E-A or RA2A1 32-bit microcontroller (MCU). For additional resources, please visit the IO-Link Device Solutions page.

System Benefits:

  • Cost-effective two-way communication
  • Parameters are factory programmed
  • Real-time sensing status monitoring
  • Compact solution can be attached to small sensor devices
