Balluff: Bi-directional inductive coupler

Balluff has expanded its IO-Link enabled Inductive coupling product family to include bi-directional IO-Link communication; the inductive coupling solution enables transfer of power and data over a small air gap, making it ideally suited in the industrial space, where getting I/O in hard to reach places or to moving components is a challenge.

The Balluff IO-Link inductive coupler, with its small compact IP67 housing (40 mm x 40 mm x 70 mm), is the industry's first compact inductive coupler to offer 32 bytes of bi-directional data transfer over a standard 4-pole M12 sensor cable. It's also rated for 500mA at a 5mm gap with 24V power.
