Meeting the needs of expanding IIoT

Belden has responded to the fast growing demand for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity by expanding its Lumberg Automation LioN-Power IO-Link System.

The latest updates to the LioN-Power family are claimed to offer maximum versatility and cost-effectiveness and make use of standardised protocols, the products feature user-friendly integration and configuration tools that eliminate the need for specialised programming skills.

The system makes it possible to implement predictive maintenance by transmitting diagnostic data of intelligent IO-link sensors and actuators before a failure happens.

”The LioN-Power IO-Link Master convinces with features that significantly simplify installation and cross-functional field application,” said Artjom Bil, product manager I/O Systems at Belden. ”By extending the system with the new I/O hubs, we meet customer demands for more flexibility. All parameters, digital inputs and outputs, port configurations and security adjustments can be adapted individually to customer requirements ex-works.”

Lumberg Automation has added two I/O hubs with 10 digital inputs and 6 digital outputs and 16 universal usable inputs and outputs (16DIO). Masters and hubs can now be easily connected to process up to 132 I/O signals per system. This offers an effective way to update from passive to active systems or to collect many digital signals in distributed environments.

All LioN-Power System components are designed to operate in the harsh and confined environments typical for robotics; machine and material handling; automotive and food/beverage manufacturing; transportation; and other industrial sectors.
