SMC has several products with IO-Link connectivity. IO-Link is the first standardized IO technology worldwide (IEC 61131-9) for the communication with sensors and also actuators. The powerful point-to-point communication is based on the long established 3-wire sensor and actuator connection without additional requirements regarding the cable material.
Sensors & Switches
ISE20B-L Pressure Sensor
ISE20B-L is a digital pressure sensor supporting the IO-Link communication protocol. When paired with an IO-Link master, measured values, and settings can be accessed from the HMI screen of a PLC. ISE20B-L incorporates IO-Link 16-bit process data includes 2 output bits for set points, a diagnosis bit, and 13 bits for the measured pressure valve. The 3-screen, 3-color display shows the instantaneous reading in red or green, and the setting label and its numerical value in orange. ISE20B-L is UL/CSA, CE and RoHS compliant, with an IP65 enclosure rating.
ISE70/71 Pressure Sensor
This next generation ISE70 pressure sensor provides continuous quantitative values, as well as switched digital outputs when pressure set points are met. This sensor is also IO-Link compatible. Sensor information, such as identity, functional state, cable connection, and current or switch values can be set or monitored remotely though an IO-Link master, and connected to a fieldbus network. The ISE70 is designed for abusive environments that may also include splashed coolant, lubricants or grime. Electronics are packaged in a metal housing, while the piping connection is a stout lug with female threads, which together protect the sensor against accidental collisions with other objects in the area. A smooth display face with membrane type buttons avoids contamination from grit and sticky residue that could clog or jam raised rubber buttons. The display is angled and can rotate 336 degrees, to permit easy reading when indirectly mounted. The main screen shows instantaneous values in red or green, while the sub screen setting appear in orange. Switch indicators will also light when set points are reached.

ISA3-L Digital Gap Checker
The ISA3-L is an IO-Link compatible version of SMC's ISA3 digital gap checker. A gap checker uses air pressure to verify the presence and proximity of a workpiece. Applications include confirmation of raw material placement before machining or other fabrication operations, or the correct seating of a component into a jig or fixture to trigger the next assembly sequence. ISA3-L includes features like 2 sensors detect supply and outlet pressure, to help determine whether and where this is a clog. NPN or PNP switch type is selectable electronically. The sub-screen has been divided into 2 screens, to display more information or finer resolution. The lower limit of the setting range can be extended down to zero. IO-Link communication expands functionality. Gap size, supply and outlet pressure are available as 16-bit integers. 6 bits and settings monitor 2 switch outputs. 2 additional bits are available for pressure and error diagnosis. Settings can be stored by the IO-Link master to copy automatically when replacing or deploying multiples. ISA3-L is CE and RoHS compliant, with an IP67 enclosure rating.
PSE200A, Multi-Channel Digital Pressure Sensor Monitor
PSE200A is a pressure sensor monitor with an informative, easy to read 3 screen, 3 color display. Connect up to 4 PSE series remote pressure sensors, then select a channel to view the sensor’s measured value on the main screen. Alternately, the range input function can scale any 1-5V signal from another sensor type to a display value from -1500 to 1500. View a variety of secondary data on the sub-screens, including switch set point value, level meter, character string for labeling and more. Check differential pressure between CH1-CH2, or CH3-CH4. Additional functions include anti-chatter, error codes, power saving, key lock, security code and others. This monitor is also IO-Link compatible for viewing measured values, diagnostics and switch output status of all channels. Internal hardware and applied pressure errors can also be indicated. Parameters set on the monitor can be reset by the IO-Link master if a new monitor replaces a damaged or failed one. PSE200A is CE and RoHS compliant, with an IP65 front face when panel mounted (IP40 otherwise).

The JXCL1 is a single axis controller for LE's 24VDC step motors compatible with IO-Link fieldbus protocol. Actuator motors can be operated by calling a line of step data or by direct numerical instruction, each possible over the network. Futher fieldbus compatible functions include return to origin, alarm outputs and resets, parameter setup, status monitoring, and trial runs.
IZT - Separate Controller Ionizer Bar Type/Nozzle Type
The IZT bar ionizer is an industrial static control solution. Bar ionizers generate a curtain of static eliminating ions effective for a distance up to 2000mm/6.5 ft. The IZT's low profile is also ideal for tight clearance installations. Compared to SMC's IZS4 bar ionizers, the power supply and control modules have been separated from the bar, resulting in a reduction in bar height. IZT bars can be placed closer to static-carrying materials in more confined adjacent spaces. The separate controller can be mounted in a workstation for easier access and observation during operation. Models include the standard IZT40, the IZT41 which adds auto-balance, emitter maintenance detection, and I/O signals, and the IZT42 with low amplitude ion generation for sensitive electronics. Extending the value of IZT, one controller can manage a maximum of 4 ionizing bars. Needle cartridges are easily removed, without tools, for cleaning or end-of-life replacement, further extending this ionizer's value.
