Without the limitations of cabling, wireless systems can provide more flexibility and modularity. There is no difference in how IO-Link Wireless data is processed, compared to the existing IO-Link standard, thus simplifying implementation.
For Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), wireless connectivity is a must. Traditional wireless is not suitable, as it cannot both control and monitor production machinery and does not meet industrial standards for latency, reliability, and scalability. Read this article by Silicon Labs and CoreTigo and discover how IO-Link Wireless provides a proven solution for both new machines and retrofitting existing equipment, and meets the latency and reliability standards for monitoring and control use cases.
