TigoAir LK1 SOM

IO-Link Wireless Device System-on-Module

TigoAir LK1 SOM IO-Link Wireless Device Embedded Module

TigoAir LK1 SOM is an embedded system-on-module for designing and building IO-Link Wireless Devices, such as industrial wireless sensors and actuators. The module includes the IO-Link Wireless radio and physical components along with CoreTigo’s IO-Link Wireless Device software stack. TigoAir LK1 SOM converts from IO-Link to IO-Link Wireless over 2-3.3V UART, replacing the wired IO-Link PHY, thus enabling a smooth upgrade to IO-Link Wireless of devices originally designed with IO-Link ports.
Typical applications include embedding the TigoAir LK1 SOM in grippers, vacuum pumps, valves, vibration sensors, load cells, and more.

Product Highlights

Small Footprint

TigoAir LK1 SOM enables integration inside a broad range of devices due to its small footprint of 11x17mm

Simple Development

Fast and efficient integration by leveraging existing device design and enabling to save on the PHY 24V physical components


Based on the IO-Link Wireless system specifications, the TigoAir LK1 SOM provides an ultra-high reliability of 1 e-9 PER (Packer Error Rate), which is one million times more reliable than other conventional wireless systems

Low Latency

Enables development of an IO-Link Wireless Device that can communicate with an IO-Link Wireless Master at a low latency of 5msec


Immunity to noisy industrial environments, flexible external antenna connection, coexists with other wireless networks

Variety of Applications

  • Embedded in condition monitoring sensors such as vibration, air flow and load cells
  •  Embedded in grippers and vacuum pumps that are mounted on robotic end of arm or on independent mover systems
  •  Embedded in valves and servo motors for control on rotating equipment such as rotary tables and carousels
