IO-Link meets digital I/O

The Smart Communication Module (SCM) is a master gateway that is suitable for all Zimmer-IO-Link components. With its two channels, the SCM can control two devices and on a functional level, offers the direct implementation of IO-Link to digital I/O. The module thus makes it possible to integrate IO-Link devices into a digital infrastructure and utilize almost the full extended range of functions of the IO-Link device.

YOUR benefits

  • Translates IO-Link to digital inputs and outputs (digital I/O) and from digital I/O to IO-Link
  • Easy control of intelligent IO-Link grippers via 24 V digital I/O
  • Configuration and training take place using the corresponding intuitive guideZ software
  • Can be used with one or two grippers depending on the flexibility required
  • Up to 15 different workpieces can be trained for one gripper

Application example

The SCM is installed in the robot control cabinet, where it communicates directly with the robot control system using its digital I/O. On the gripper side, the 5 pins of the IO-Link are connected directly to the SCM, using an external or (where available) internal line.
