Pilz PSS u2 ES 4IOL IO-Link master module

The PSS u2 ES 4IOL IO-Link master module is designed to enable communication between the PSSuniversal 2 remote I/O system and sensors or actuators.

The IO-Link master module PSS u2 ES 4IOL can be integrated into Profinet and EtherNet/IP networks using the corresponding head modules. IO-Link devices such as sensors or actuators are connected to the PSSuniversal 2 remote I/O system via four IO-Link ports on the master module. One module transfers up to 128 bytes of process data via point-to-point communication. The process and device data of the devices is available centrally in the master module. The IO-Link data interface simplifies all the maintenance tasks due to the detailed device and cabling diagnostics.

The master module is configured simply via the PASconfig software from Pilz. The user can save the device configurations centrally in the master module: when a sensor is exchanged, its data is simply transferred to the new sensor; no new parameters need to be set. This automated parameterisation saves the operator time. In addition, faults are reduced and plant availability is increased. The IO-Link module can be hot-swapped, which further minimises downtimes.

An LED display on the master module indicates the IO-Link mode, operating status and module errors. Expanded diagnostics through communication with the IO-Link devices also enables open circuit detection. The PSS u2 ES 4IOL IO-Link master module provides the information to the intelligent devices for further processing for a networked production and it can support future solutions for preventive maintenance.
