The Machine Speaks: IO-Link

The bidirectional IO-Link interface is key for optimizing digital processes. Whether replacing plug-and-play sensors, diagnosing the machine or sensor status, or identifying devices, IO-Link is essential for paving the way for efficient, digital production. 

Industry-optimized Cloud Services

Turck Cloud Solutions has been developed to meet the IIoT requirements of industrial customers. These requirements include encrypted communication for maximum security, plug-and-play dashboards for remote maintenance or automatic alarm messages. The perfect cloud for industrial applications — hosted by Turck or on customer-owned servers.

Transparency in Production and Logistics

RFID systems identify and locate goods, from goods-in and the production stage right through to retail. Turck combines its comprehensive IP67 RFID portfolio of HF and UHF technology with the integration expertise of Turck Vilant Systems, making it one of the industry's leading specialists. 

Separate, Supply, Protect - Even in the Smallest Control Cabinet

The IMXK interface devices have been specially developed for installation in flat control cabinets. They are just as narrow as standard devices, but with a depth of 77 millimeters, they also fit inside compact control cabinets and other small enclosures.

Sensor Solutions – Versatile and Intelligent

Measuring position and distance or detecting objects and fluids – demanding tasks in automation require smart solutions. Turck therefore has sensors in its product range that are not only particularly robust and precise, but IO-Link empowers them to be clever all-rounders.

Smart Flow Monitoring

Delta flow monitoring and Quick-Teach make it easy to commission the FS+ flow sensor. The intuitive operating concept with capacitive buttons ensures the device is impervious up to IP6K9K without compromising on the great appearance. And thanks to the modular mechanical concept, the appropriate FS+ is available in the shortest possible time.

Find the Right One Fast: Encoders from Turck

An encoder should function in the way that best suits the application. Turck's portfolio ranges from classic efficiency encoders to premium encoders capable of taking contactless measurements. The output type and frame size, as well as the shaft type and shaft diameter are key criteria when it comes to selecting an appropriate encoder.
