IO-Link is the first international standardized (IEC 61131-9) I/O interface technology, for the communication between sensors/actuators and the I/O terminal. It functions by collecting I/O data, diagnostics and parameter information from sensors and actuators, through the IO-Link Master and feeding it through a fieldbus network, to a host controller. This enables communication of the whole system, reducing time needed for maintenance and commissioning. It constantly communicates at the sensor level, offering a better future of communication and enhancing the value of manufacturing. IO-Link is not just another fieldbus though, it a series of simple point-to-point connections to field devices, designed to replace field wiring.
Late last year Omron Electronics, a Japanese giant specialising in industrial automation, acquired a 100 percent stake in Adept Robotics – the largest supplier of industrial robots in the US.
How would you like to save 50 percent or more on your energy bills each year?
For manufacturers, it may not be as difficult as you think.
If your business operates fans, pumps, compressors, blowers or heavy duty motors you can achieve significant energy savings by simply installing Variable Speed Drives (VSDs).

On Friday the 28th of October, Omron Sydney hosted a successful seminar to introduce its new 1S Servo Technology System and NX1P entry level controller. About 40 existing and new customers from around Sydney happily attended. The day started with complimentary breakfast followed by introduction to this new servo system from Omron’s senior robotics engineer, David Pratt.
OMRON Electronics are proud to announce the release of their new DIN Track Terminal Blocks – XW5T.
This unit features ‘Push-In Plus Terminal Block’ technology for easy wiring insertion which reduces wiring time by around 60% in comparison to the conventional screw-type terminal block. Push-in technology are more secure as they have consistent tension thus allowing maintenance free application
