Are There C Series Modules for Interfacing with the IO Link Protocol?

Updated Aug 26, 2022

Reported In

Hardware

  • CompactRIO Controller

Driver

  • Industrial Controller Device Drivers 18.5

Issue Details

  • How can I interface with IO Link devices using a compactRIO?
  • Is there a C series module that could work to interface with IO Link?

Solution

We currently do not offer any products to interface directly with IO Link devices. You could try using a IO Link master to communicate with the slave devices, and then use any compatible industrial communication protocol with the compactRIO.

Additional Information

GPower, a third-party company, developped a driver for IO Link products (External Link)
