IO-Link Masters

July 2020 – CARLO GAVAZZI is pleased to announce the launch of our new IO-Link Masters, which are IIoT-enabled network blocks for digital industrial transformation. They feature an embedded web interface and OPC UA for full remote access and control of the IO-Link master and connected devices.

The new Y Series is available in two housing styles, the YL212 for machine installation has a fully encapsulated IP67 housing for use in harsh environments and integrates the future-proof L-coded M12 power connector for higher current in more compact dimensions, compared to the 7/8” standard. The YN115 DIN rail version for control cabinet installation includes pluggable/removable push-in and screw terminal connectors for a quick and error-proof installation of the IO-Link devices and module. YL212 and YN115 fully support the industry’s leading Ethernet protocols, such as EtherNet/IP™, PROFINET IO, and MODBUS TCP. In addition, the integrated OPC UA protocol allows simultaneous access to the data of the attached smart devices from the PLC and via OPC UA clients, with a reliable, continuous, and transparent data flow from the sensors into cloud-based systems.
