Wireless Communication Module
WIRELESS FUNCTIONALITY FOR ALL IO-LINK GRIPPERS
With the Wireless IO Communication Module, IO-Link signals are transmitted by radio. This opens up entirely new approaches in robotics and mechanical engineering, where the integration of sensors and actuators is just a mouse click away. Extensive combinations in complex systems can now be created and used in a simple manner. In addition, sources of error due to moving data lines or wearing parts are eliminated. Regardless of the design of the existing robots or plant base, all Zimmer Group IO-Link gripper components can be used. Learn more about the benefits of this effective communication solution!
- Compatible with all Zimmer Group IO-Link grippers, regardless of the design of the existing robot / plant base.
- No complex cable routing through the robot or system (slip rings, contact elements, etc. not required)
- No source of error due to moving data line (mechanical obstacle, broken wire), wear part eliminated
- Scalable, easy expansion with additional grippers by pairing on the master
Equipped for digital transformation: with its comprehensive software package, Zimmer Group offers you the digital service you need to reduce production costs, improve quality, increase flexibility and ultimately boost sales.
