IO-Link Wireless bridge
TigoBridge from CoreTigo is an IO-Link Wireless component that enables the communication of industrial sensors, actuators and devices without the need for a wired cable connection to a master or gateway.
TigoBridge is based on the IO-Link Wireless standard, designed specifically for factory automation, and certified to meet the demands of harsh industrial environments. It connects in a plug & play manner to both IO-Link and digital I/O devices to establish a standards-based wireless communication. In addition, TigoBridge can wirelessly connect multiple devices in parallel by plugging in to off-the-shelf industrial I/O Hubs with multiple sensors/actuators.
TigoBridge can be used in a variety of applications such as machine retrofit, condition monitoring and IIoT. TigoBridge can also be used for control-based applications, such as wirelessly controlling grippers or vacuum pumps on moving equipment (e.g. robotic arms, linear robots and transport systems).
TigoBridge includes an IP67 industrial-grade housing, standard M-12 connectors for simple connection to any device, a specially designed internal antenna for optimal performance, and a variety of mounting options. TigoBridge can be configured and setup via the TigoEngine IO-Link Wireless Engineering Tool, and a variety of applications for data visualization, analytics and monitoring can be built with the TigoInsights software platform.
