How IO Link Is Paving the Way for IIOT Advancements

IO Link industrial communication technology is growing rapidly as a point-to-point communication system for delivering device data. Host Hilary Kennedy welcomed guest Tim Graham, Product Manager at Schneider Packaging Equipment, to discuss how this technology is changing industries and bringing greater efficiency to operations.

Before taking on his role as product manager, Graham worked for several years as a controls engineer specializing in robotic solutions and machine design. He has the technical knowledge that comes with experience and all the details on where this technology is headed in the future.

“The big piece everyone has seen the benefit from immediately is controlling your data,” Graham said. IO Link can incorporate existing sensors and improve the capabilities and performance of those systems.

The flexibility in changing settings and configurations makes this technology ideal for facilities that need to adjust operations in response to changing data.

Over the last few years, IO Link has become standardized across the U.S., leading to greater adoption as industries begin to understand all the capabilities and possibilities of the technology.

IO Link is ushering in new advances in IIOT (industrial Internet of Things), where the amount of data coming out of sensors creates a more robust operation. However, having more data is not without challenges.

“Everybody thinks more data is better, but, at the end of the day, it has the downside of trying to figure out which data to capture when, as well as what to do with it once you have it,” Graham said.

This flexibility of data gives customers an opportunity to customize and implement solutions that best suit their needs.
