Belden Expands LioN-Power Portfolio, to Meet Increasing IIoT Connectivity Demands

Enhancements to Lumberg Automation LioN-Power IO-Link System Enable Greater Flexibility in Factory Automation

St. Louis, Missouri - February 19, 2019 - Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, has expanded its Lumberg Automation LioN-Power IO-Link System to help industrial manufacturers address fast-growing Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity needs through simplified device automation. New updates to the LioN-Power family offer maximum versatility and cost-effectiveness. In addition to leveraging standardized protocols, the products feature user-friendly integration and configuration tools that eliminate the need for specialized programming skills. Furthermore the LioN-Power IO-Link System makes it possible to implement predictive maintenance by transmitting diagnostic data of intelligent IO-link sensors and actuators before a failure happens.


"The LioN-Power IO-Link Master convinces with features that significantly simplify installation and cross-functional field application", said Artjom Bil, product manager I/O Systems at Belden. "By extending the IO-Link System with the new I/O Hubs, we meet customer demands for more flexibility. All parameters, digital inputs and outputs, port configurations and security adjustments can be adapted individually to customer requirements ex works."

Enhancements to the LioN-Power IO-Link System include:
• Lumberg Automation has added two LioN-Power IO-Link I/O Hubs with 10 digital inputs and 6 digital outputs (10DI 6DO) and 16 universal usable inputs and outputs (16DIO). IO-Link devices, IO-Link Masters and I/O Hubs can now be easily connected to process up to 132 I/O signals per system. This offers an effective way to update from passive to active systems or to collect many digital signals in distributed environments. Moreover IO-Link devices are designed to work seamlessly with the TMG IO-Link Device Tool as well as the TE concept tool in the future.

All LioN-Power System components are designed to operate in the harsh and confined environments typical for robotics; machine and material handling; automotive and food/beverage manufacturing; transportation; and other industrial sectors.
