Balluff IO link 400April 8, 2019

The newest family of IO-Link masters from Balluff provide more flexibility in designing controls architectures with Smart IO-Link devices. The new Device Integration IO-Link masters — BNI00E1 (Ethernet/IP) and BNI00AZ (Profinet) — feature 4x Type A IO-Link ports and 4x Type B IO-Link ports, each with up to 2A of output per channel to meet a wider range of requirements.

“Balluff’s portfolio of IO-Link masters has been trusted by more than 50% of IO-Link applications worldwide. The addition of these masters offers our customers even more flexibility and choice for building resilient distributed modular controls architecture” said Shishir Rege, technical sales specialist with Balluff. “As IO-Link is becoming a mainstream choice for the next generation of IIoT ready industrial automation applications, this master acknowledges the customer’s needs and market trends.”

The new Device Integration IO-Link master offers M12 T-coded power connections capable of up to 12A of power. These IO-Link masters boast 9A of galvanically isolated output power with up to 2A per port on Type B ports to drive high amperage devices such as pneumatic or hydraulic valves.

The enhanced webserver capabilities on board the master enable remote configuring, parameterizing and monitoring IO-Link devices with IODD files without the need for additional software.

The savings keep coming when you use a variable frequency drive (VFD) with synchronous bypass and transfer capabilities. It can help reduce up-front capital costs and long-term energy and maintenance costs in various motor-control applications. And along with the cost savings, the VFD can help you increase efficiency and achieve more flexible process control.

A VFD with synchronous capabilities allows you to operate one motor continuously with variable speed control or to start and synchronize multiple motors. It also gives you the ability to soft start large motors.

Motor Feature


As a leading manufacturer of drive technology, we also supply mechanical variable-speed gearmotors. For both series, VARIBLOC®and VARIMOT®, you can easily infinitely adjust the speed mechanically using a handwheel or remote control.

Speeds of up to 45 kW can be easily adjusted mechanically

Mechanical variable-speed gearmotors are simple yet robust drive components that represent an inexpensive alternative in many materials handling and process engineering applications. This is because you control the speed infinitely variably yourself: mechanically using a handwheel or via remote control. The process does not involve any costly control cabinets or frequency inverters at all.
