Device description IODD

IO-Link devices possess individual system information in the form of an IO device description (IODD), which contains:

  • Communication features
  • Device parameters with value range and default values
  • Identification, process and diagnostic data
  • Device data
  • Text description
  • Picture of the device
  • Vendor's logo

If the IODD is imported, then the device data are automatically detected during automatic scanning with TwinCAT and adopted in the System Manager (cf. integration of the IO-Link devices).
