MESCO is a new IO-Link Competence Center for North America

MESCO Group continues to expand its competencies in the USA. MESCO Engineering, Inc. was accredited by the IO-Link Steering Committee as an IO-Link Competence Center. As such, MESCO now offers technical expertise and support to IO-Link manufacturers and vendors from North America.

IO-Link, the new bi-directional, digital, point-to-point communication standard (IEC 61131-9), offers a standardized mapping of advanced sensor and actuator features in the control engineering tool environment. It can be integrated easily and cost-effectively and plays an important role for the advance of IIoT. The technology is therefore becoming increasingly important, especially in automation technology.

In order to facilitate easy access to the IO-Link technology, MESCO as a certified IO-Link Competence Center offers development tools such as IO-Link Master and Device Stacks, various test tools and additional development services.

In Germany, the MESCO Group works closely with its partner TEConcept in the IO-Link area. Together, they have been pioneers in IO-Link technology for years and have proven their competence many times through their participation in the IO-Link Community. Now MESCO is bringing its know-how closer to US customers.
