Purging and pressurization is a safe and cost-effective type of explosion protection that allows electrical equipment to be used in a standard enclosure in potentially explosive atmospheres. Find out more about the Ex p type of protection and the functional principle of pressurized enclosures in explosive gas and dust atmospheres in our blog article.
When connected to an IO-Link master, IO-Link devices offer a variety of benefits to the control systems in a plant, such as online configuration and parameterization, simplified device exchange, and even data acquisition via OPC UA and MQTT. For commissioning and test reasons, however, you may wish to configure and parameterize an IO-Link device outside the plant. This blog article supports you in offline parameterization of IO-Link devices using PACTware.
