IO-Link is a standard intelligent digital interface. It's serial communication protocol makes wiring easier, needing only three wires to simultaneously transmit measured values and status information. The status bit can signal a controller if a sensor needs replacement and the controller can detect the new device and automatically configure it based on stored values minimizing down time. Parameters such as zero point can be sent and programmed into the sensor over this bus.
