Weitere Informationen


Hilscher’s IO-Link technology platform netFIELD Device connects simple as well as complex sensors and actors seamlessly to industrial Real-Time Ethernet networks.

The scope of netFIELD Device is now broadened by introducing the innovative IO-Link Wireless communication. Machine builders and factory operators have new possibilities to gather sensor data and monitor their plants.

The netFIELD Device IO-Link Wireless Class A Bridge serves as the counterpart to Hilscher’s IO-Link master and is directly connected to its corresponding sensors. The small coupling device for the radio communication only needs a 24V power connection to provide fast and reliable wireless communication.

Hilscher’s netFIELD Devices are IP67-rated, preventing the ingress of dust and water. A complex installation within control cabinets is not necessary.
