Fieldbus-Independent Automation: LioN-Power Multiprotocol I/O Modules

Power your industrial automation solutions for Industry 4.0 connectivity with the most versatile multiprotocol I/O modules on the market, supporting PROFINET, EtherNet/IP and EtherCAT.

Choose just one I/O module to meet your operation’s demands across multiple regions, purposes and customers. LioN-Power Multiprotocol I/O modules support all three of the largest industrial Ethernet standards – PROFINET, EtherNet/IP and EtherCAT – to give you maximum flexibility, cost-effectiveness and field-level connectivity in any application. With the latest M12 power technology + standard 7/8” options, you don’t have to change your machine design in order to upgrade.


Fieldbus-Independent Automation: LioN-Power Multiprotocol I/O Modules

Multiprotocol technology inside LioN-Power active I/O modules now supports the three largest Ethernet protocols in a single device. Easily select the protocol you need through the integrated rotary switch.

Fieldbus independent

  • Gain flexibility with the world’s first I/O module to support all three of the largest industrial Ethernet protocols, giving you everything you need in one module.


  • Configure every channel for digital input and output with the easily adaptable universal DIO module.


  • Connect more field devices in a daisy-chain with the industry’s only I/O module to support 2 x 16 A in a single connector.

Fieldbus-independent LioN-Power Multiprotocol I/O Modules are especially helpful for applications where machines or systems are built in an identical way, but with different programmable logic controllers (PLCs). One single LioN-Power I/O device can be used across all three different control systems (protocols) and, therefore, helps you design standardized machines with identical field-level components.

With the addition of universal DIO options, the LioN-Power Multiprotocol I/O modules give machine builders scalable solutions that are adaptable to the needs of customer-specific machines and varying I/O configurations.

LioN-Power Multiprotocol I/O Modules

With LioN-Power multiprotocol I/O modules’ additional ability to support EtherCAT, machine builders now have even more flexibility in choosing one LioN-Power module for multiple purposes, regions and customers.
