Parker LogoParker Moduflex IO-Link for Smart Connectivity
Delivers reduced complexity, lower operating costs and increased safety
Moduflex IO-Link Module allows for simple and cost efficient connection to any IO-Link masters. Moduflex IO Link module can connect IO Link to 3 of Parker valve series: Moduflex valves, H Micro valves, and all 5 sizes of H ISO valves (15407 & 5599).
Connected valve technology gives Parker's customers the option to add intelligence and control, enabling reduced cabinet size and node count. This new IO-Link module is the perfect local extension of a superior industrial ethernet or fieldbus network through an IO-Link master, meaning reduced system complexity at a lower cost. 
IO-Link offers time critical extended diagnostics, not available through traditional discrete solutions, that can prove vital in preventing costly downtime.
