IO-Link Wireless Development Toolkits

The perfect tool for IO-Link Wireless development

Development Toolkits for Master and Device Development

KUNBUS Development Toolkits enable device manufacturers to enter the world of IO-Link Wireless quickly and easily. The toolkits are available for both IO-Link Wireless Master and Device development. Technologically, we have chosen the SimpleLink™ CC2650 microcontroller from Texas Instruments.

 

The reason we chose the CC2650 from TI

Compared to other microcontrollers on the market, the CC2650 offers high performance at very low power consumption. This allows potential applications with energy self-sufficient sensors, which are also covered by the IO-Link Wireless standard. The integrated Cortex-M3 of the CC2650 enables a single-chip design without a separate controller. The hardware footprint and costs can be significantly reduced. Thanks to the exact synchronization of the single radios, the IO-Link Wireless Master stack supports the implementation of 5 tracks with 40 connected Devices (sensors or actuators). Up to 3 Masters shall be able to communicate with up to 120 Devices at the same time within one RF area.

Seamless fieldbus connection

IO-Link Wireless can be integrated into the fieldbus or Industrial Ethernet level by integrating the IO-Link master as a slave in the higher-level fieldbus / Industrial Ethernet. Such integration can be implemented seamlessly with the Texas Instruments Sitara processor family. Both the fieldbus/IE slave stack and the IO-Link Wireless Master Stack run on a Sitara processor, while the SimpleLink CC2650 continues to handle the wireless communication. This allows the implementation of compact, fieldbus-capable IO-Link Wireless Masters with a small hardware footprint. For the TI Sitara processor family we offer the most common industrial network protocols with PROFINET, EtherCAT, EtherNet/IP and PROFIBUS.
