IIoT-enabled network blocks

20 January 2021

ADDRESSING Industry 4.0 needs, Carlo Gavazzi has launched the IO-Link Y series of IIoT-enabled network blocks, which allow up to eight smart devices to connect to the higher-level control system.

Installing smart devices within a plant can improve business performance as well as product quality, maintenance/machine uptime, increased speed of operation and lower manufacturing costs.

IO-Link Y master YL212 allows the connection of all sections of a plant into a single industrial network, from the management level (ERP) right down to the field level (sensors and actuators). Using the embedded webserver and IODD Y series IO-Link masters can provide complete integration, communication and direct data exchange between different fieldbuses using communication protocols such as Ethernet™/IP, Modbus/TCP, OPC UA or Profinet IO.

The YN115 DIN rail version is suited to control cabinet installation and includes pluggable/removable push-in and screw terminal connectors for a quick and error-proof installation of the IO-Link devices and modules.

The integrated web server is available in 7 languages, and the IODD interpreter provides easy access, configuration and diagnostic of the module and the attached IO-Link devices via a web browser.  The inbuilt OPC-UA architecture allows data transmission on many platforms so it can be accessed remotely from PC’s, tablets or smartphones and without the need for any additional costly software or PLC.

The Y Series is the perfect solution to provide optimal performance in any factory where smart processes are required from the machine and factory level to the top, providing an easy to use intelligent interface between hardware and software. The Y series of products are CE, UL and FCC certified.
