IO-Link LIBRARY for SIMATIC PCS 7/SIMATIC PCS NEO WE PROVIDE THE KEY

AT A GLANCE:

Drivers are a small but important key to integrating IO-Link devices in SIMATIC PCS 7.

We offer an appropriately varied library for system-compliant device integration.

Close collaborations with vendors provide us with in-depth knowledge of a variety of IO-Link components.

THE CHALLENGE:

The number of sensors and actuators integrated in SIMATIC PCS 7 via IO-Link is constantly growing, so it’s no surprise that this communication protocol is used universally, from engineering to device diagnostics – provided it always has the right IO-Link library. That really isn’t a problem, but it does require special expertise.

 

WHAT GIVES YOU ADDED VALUE:

We offer a diverse IO-Link library for system-compliant connection to SIMATIC PCS 7. As a specialized development team, we enable cost-effective solutions throughout the lifecycle of the process control system, from its initial integration to maintenance and ongoing updates. The risk to you couldn’t be smaller.

 

WHAT WE DO DIFFERENTLY:

Every library contains knowledge that we’re constantly refining in collaboration with major vendors like Turck, Pepperl+Fuchs, Siemens, and ifm electronic. We make our expertise available in the IO-Link standardization consortium, among other organizations, where we also pick up valuable ideas for new trends and developments.

IO-Link: The smart communication standard

IO-Link is a point-to-point communication protocol that allows the integration of smart sensors and actuators in automation systems. It simplifies engineering and commissioning, delivers diagnostic indications to the control and monitoring system, and forwards process data from the IO-Link devices to the application program.

 

One benefit of IO-Link is that data is transmitted via an unshielded 3-core cable that’s also used for sensors with no bus connection. This means that devices in an existing system can be replaced by IO-Link sensors without having to change the wiring.

Add-on module driver library

IO-Link technology is already widespread in the manufacturing industry. It offers benefits during installation, commissioning, and ongoing operation. Seamless integration is essential for using IO-Link technology in process control systems, as are effective and consistent engineering. Input and output signals are automatically assigned to the corresponding device in engineering, and the diagnostic data is integrated in the signal’s accompanying value.

So we can offer consistent, end-to-end engineering for IO-Link devices, Codewerk has released a library as an official SIMATIC PCS 7 add-on for integrating devices.

ECONOMICAL SOLUTION FOR YOUR PROJECTS

We offer a license that you can purchase for the IO-Link library for SIMATIC PCS 7 that’s valid for multiple controllers within a plant.*

License costs per project are between €2,450 and €2,650, depending on the PCS 7 version used.

By releasing the library as an official SIMATIC PCS 7 add-on, we guarantee long-term support and regular upgrades to new system versions.
