Comtrol is an US-based pioneer in industrial Ethernet communication and IO-Link gateway products known for its RocketPort® product family, among others. Comtrol’s technologies will complement Pepperl+Fuchs’ portfolio of Sensorik4.0 sensor solutions and interface technologies that includes AS-Interface, IO-Link masters, and industrial connectivity. Expanding its offering of Ethernet communication products and field-interfacing devices ties into Pepperl+Fuchs’ Industry 4.0 strategy and will allow the company to provide even more solutions that close the gap between field devices and the control level.
“An enhanced Pepperl+Fuchs IO-Link product range will help our customers improve the flow of data from field devices to the control level and the cloud. Customers will be able to turn to a single, trusted partner to help develop their newest digital business processes,” says Reiner Müller, President of the Factory Automation Division at Pepperl+Fuchs.
