Boost my light: IO-Link for CT5 and PC7
Auer Signal's flagship tower lights CT5 and PC7 are now available for IO-Link control.
The new PC7MC5IO and PC7BLVIO base modules as well as CT5MC5IO and CT5KR1IO enable the implementation of our PC7 and CT5 signal towers into IO-Link communication systems.

Key benefits of Auer Signal IO-Link solutions:
- Clever engineering in combination with highest demands on quality and design
- Most cost effective and user friendly IO-link signal tower solution on the market
- Simplest operation for IO-Link application
- Integration of IO-Link technology directly into the base
Upgrades for steady light modules
With the use of the new IO-Link bases by Auer Signal, existing steady light modules of the PC7 (PC7DC) and CT5 (CT5DC) can benefit from the full potential of modern LED technology: The functions flashing, strobe and double strobe light can be additionally reproduced with the cost-effective standard steady light modules. This solution optimizes the procurement process, increases flexibility and minimizes the costs for you signal tower despite the highest level of functionality.
Easiest parameterisation on the market
Signaling devices are an important component in automation. For this reason, our IO-Link solution relies on the lowest possible process data with just 3 bytes for full range of functions. This low demand for process data and the particularly simple programming make it possible to maximize the potential of the surrounding automation landscape.
IO-link integration directly into the base
The IO-Link technology is integrated directly into the base and follows with this approach the principle of value engineering: Thus, neither an additional IO-Link module is necessary, nor is there any additional effort for assembly, order processing or stock keeping. The visual appearance of the signal tower is identical to that of a conventional tower light without IO-Link control.
Easy change-over of existing signal towers
Currently implemented PC7 and CT5 signal tower modules are compatible with the new IO-Link bases. A simple upgrade from conventional control to IO-Link control is easily possible. The purchase of a new signal tower is not necessary. The conventional terminal connection makes the change-over process particularly suitable for retrofits.
