Smart Diagnostics Tool


Manufacturers and industrial operators can now access more detailed sensor diagnostics in harsh operating environments using the IP67-rated ArmorBlock IO-Link master. The unit stores up to 40 timestamps of sensor events on each channel. This event history can thus help users track changes and more easily diagnose issues.


While the new ArmorBlock IO-Link master is ruggedized for use in harsh applications, the Rockwell Automation portfolio also includes an in-cabinet solution for light applications. The on-machine option requires only a single cable from the cabinet, reducing the number and length of cable runs and potential failure points.
