Analog Plugs convert analog signals into IO-Link signals.
Construction Equipment and Supplies

Analog Plugs convert analog signals into IO-Link signals.

Featuring 14-bit resolution, IO-Link Analog Plugs are suited for systems with limited instances of analog signals. Units are connected directly to sensor and convert analog signals into IO-Link signals before transmission. Constructed with IP67-rated enclosure, plugs use unshielded, 3-conductor cable in place of shielded cables. Versions are available with current input of 4-20 mA, voltage from...
