IO-Link Sensor Transmitter Reference Design


Design files


This reference design offers a rapid prototyping platform for IO-Link sensor transmitter. Due to its modular design, different sections can be easily cut away to allow fast and simple interfacing of any analog or digital sensor.  The design is programmed with a fully validated IO-Link stack leveraging the fully validated IO-Link PHY. It comes by default with a switch emulating a digital input, 2 LEDs for status indications and a potentiometer emulating an RTD (read by a 24-bit front-end). All this fits in a 6-mm wide PCB compatible with the industry-standard M12 connector.

  • RTD performance: maximum measured error: 0.17°C (-200°C to 850°C)
  • IO-Link v1.1 connectivity out of the box (TMG stack, PHY and M12 connector)
  • Easy connection of in-house sensor to the PCB
  • Designed to meet IEC 61000-4-2, IEC 61000-4-4, IEC 61000-4-5 and IEC 60255-5 standards
