Maxim Integrated MAXREFDES145# - 8-channel IO-Link master

Maxim Integrated MAXREFDES145# board image

The MAXREFDES145# is a fully IO-Link®-compliant, 8-port IO-Link master reference design. This design uses TEConcept's IO-Link master stack and is both an IO-Link master reference design as well as an IO-Link sensor/actuator development and test system. Eight IO-Link ports allow for simultaneous testing of up to eight different sensors (or actuators). The reference design has eight robust female M12 connectors, the most common connector used for IO-Link, and ships with two IO-Link cables to quickly connect to IO-Link compatible sensors and actuators. An AC-to-DC (24VDC/1A) power-supply cube is capable of providing at least 125mA simultaneously to each port and more when fewer ports are unused. A USB 2.0 Type B connector allows for quick connectivity to a Windows® PC.

The easy-to-use TEConcept Control Tool (CT) GUI software with IODD file import capability makes the MAXREFDES145# a must-have for any company or engineer serious about developing IO-Link products.
