The Simple IO-Link device integration from Turck short SIDI, simplifies the handling of IO-Link devices in Profinet engineering systems. Since the devices are already integrated in the GSDML file of the master, the user can select the devices from the device library (for example in the TIA Portal) and integrate them via drop-down fields in his project, as if the devices were submodules on a modular I / O system.
The user benefits from plain text access to all device properties and parameters. Measuring ranges, switching points and pulse rates can be set directly from the engineering system - without programming or additional software.
SIDI is now integrated on all Turck IO-Link masters of the TBEN-L, TBEN-S and FEN20 series. The software contains all IO-Link devices from Turck and Banner Engineering. In addition, the automation specialist has also included third-party IO-Link devices such as valve terminals in the SIDI catalog. On request, other devices from other manufacturers can be added.
SIDI also simplifies maintenance considerably. Since all device properties and parameters of masters and devices are available directly in the central project storage of the controller, automatic device replacement also succeeds in the event of damage without problems - both for IO-Link masters and for devices.
