What options are there for connecting a standard Analog Input to an IO-Link Port?

Analog Input to an IO-Link Port. What resolution can I expect?

It is easy to connect any standard Analog Input ( as below ) and bring these signals into the network using our IO-Link interfaces.

  • Voltage: 0 to10 V, -10 to10 V, 0 to 5 V, -5 to 5 V, 5 to 10 V
  • Current: 4 to 20mA, 0 to 20mA
  • Temperature: PT100, PT1000, Thermocouple Type J / Type K


Depending on the number of signals, we can connect to 1, 4 or 8 inputs using a single interface which connects to the IO-Link Master.


The signals are converted in the interface using 10 bit, 12bit, 14 bit or 16bit depending on the interface and the data format.

Note: We are not limited to just inputs, outputs are also possible.
