Balluff’s new M8 I/O hub portfolio enables Balluff IO-Link masters to host up to 248 discrete sensors on a single network node. This replaces the need for up to 16 network blocks and eliminates the associated costs for integration. Use of M8 sensors and actuators are primarily geared toward compact footprint machine designs or light weight designs.
The hubs deliver M8 quick connect to enable resilient distributed modular architecture for compact footprint machines and end effectors.
