Key Document


The TIDA-00457 TI Design is an IO-Link adapter which evaluates the binary or analog 4-20mA output signal of sensors in the industrial environment and forwards the results to the PLC via IO-Link. All this is fitting in a 6mm wide PCB compatible with the industry standard M12 connector.

  • IO-Link v1.1 and v1.0 Connectivity
  • Connection of a sensor transmitter in 2- or 3-wire technology
  • Small form factor (6mm board width)
