The 1236 is now available with IO-LINK enabled communication in a simplified system architecture. IO-LINK point-to-point wiring provides a level of diagnostic feedback formerly only available in fieldbus network control systems. With a simple USB service tool, IO-LINK device parameter settings can be adjusted locally at the valve. Time and cost savings during commissioning provide immediate payback prior to plant operation. The IO-LINK concept is an open standard that was developed by a consortium which includes most of the partners responsible for introduction of the AS-I, actuator-sensor-interface. The unique sensor/microprocessor concept, which provides self-setting either locally or from a remote control station, provides consistency and reliability that has all but eliminated false alarm feedback in an instrument with highly visible local indication.
