August 3, 2018 – Balluff’s IO-Link master range is boosted with integrated web server functionality to integrate IO-Link devices. The web server supports the configuration of IP addresses and network monitoring and has the ability to configure, parameterize and monitor IO-Link devices and provide diagnostic information. The web server uses the IODD (IO-Link Device Description) files supplied with each IO-Link device to display, modify and update device parameters in human readable language. The enhanced web server functionality is readily available with all Balluff IO-Link masters for EtherNet / IP, PROFINET and EtherCAT network protocols. The additional capacity eliminates the need for separate software or tools for configuring IO-Link devices.
