IO-Link is a point-to-point serial communication protocol standard used to communicate with sensors and/or actuators. It allows users to control and exchange three types of data – process data, service data and events.

The industry-leading RL78 microcontroller (MCU), best-in-class ZSC310xx sensor signal conditioners and ZIOL2401 IO-Link interface combine to make a complete solution that supports industrial automation trends, such as Industrial 4.0, Made-In-China 2025 and industrial internet of things (IIoT). Applications can include pressure sensing, level sensing, weight sensing, and a variety of other sensing functions.
