I/O-Link increases efficiency


IO-Link simplifies the entire network topology, integrating every sensor into the fieldbus level.


Utilizing a widely accepted and open point to point technology, IO-Link, a Distributed Modular I/O system, is fieldbus independent, easily configured, and is vendor neutral. Process data shows up as simple packets of bytes in the controller for easy integration.


IO-Link transmits all sensor signals to the controller and, conversely, relays control data to the sensor/actuator level. With revolutionary results.

 Numatics Customer Success Story

Automated Palletizer System


A leading manufacturer specializing in case packing, palletizing, and material handling solutions for the food and beverage industry wanted to update the technology in its robotic palletizers. Weight played an important role in the products they chose, since weight reduction would allow the downsizing of the robot platform for significant cost savings.


The Numatics G3 platform enabled the manufacturer to significantly reduce weight and cost, by eliminating the need for junction boxes on the EOAT (end of arm tooling).
