Balluff IO-Link analog hub
This eight-channel analog measurement hub uses IO-Link to bring all measurement data through an IO-Link master module and into the controller. Working in concert with an IO-Link master block, the analog hub expands the capabilities of the master to host multiple analog devices over a single IO-Link port. Each channel on the analog hub has fully configurable inputs for voltage, current or temperature measurements. Analog-to-digital conversion resolution can be configured per channel as 10, 12, 14 or 16 bits to meet application demands. Software-based set points can be assigned per channel, eliminating the need to physically teach set points on the sensor.
