TMG IO-Link Device Tool V5.1 – SE

The Standard Edition is intended for commissioning as well as for service and sales and includes the TMG USB IO-Link Master V2 SE. All IO-Link devices can be operated regardless of the IO-Link version. The IO-Link and IODD standard are fully supported.

IO-Link Deviced Tool SE

The IO-Link Device Tool V5.1 - SE software is used for setting, monitoring and diagnosing IO-Link devices. It supports the operation of IO-Link devices via IODD. The process data can be displayed dynamically and output values can also be specified. All settings can be saved in projects, which means that this is also available as plant documentation. Parameters can be transferred individually, in a block or all together. Settings for IO-Link devices such as parameter values, expanded or collapsed menus or scaling of the oscilloscope view can be saved on a project-specific basis or for the device type.

All settings can also be made and saved without having connected the physical device or the IO-Link master. (Offline project planning).

The Open IO-Device GUI has been specified by TMG TE and provides a graphical user interface in addition to the IODD table display. This allows even more complex setting procedures to be simplified and clearly displayed. The focus is on user-friendliness, so that parameter values can be adjusted quickly and easily. In addition, the demonstration of IO-Link devices by the sales department can be made more attractive.

Other useful functions are the IODD Viewer, the import of IODDs from the IODD Finder, the Scope function for visualization of process data and the firmware update function for IO-Link devices. The Generic function also allows operation via index and subindex and provides a raw data view.


The IO-Link Device Tool V5.1 - Standard Edition supports only the supplied TMG USB IO-Link Master V2 SE as well as the variants TS and EMC. If you want to use the IO-Link Device Tool V5.1 with other masters also from other manufacturers, we offer the Professional Edition. This is functionally identical to the Standard Edition, but also supports the IO-Link masters of other manufacturers.

Professional Edition

  • In addition to importing from the computer's file system, IODDs can also be imported from the IODD database of the IO-Link community (IODD Finder). If the IODD for a connected device is not available, the IO-Link Device Tool can search for and import the appropriate IODD for you.
  • IODD Finder
  • The IODD interpreter convinces with a very simple and clear display of the device information as well as with further useful functions. By switching to the corresponding tab, the general information, process data, identification data, parameters and diagnostic data are displayed.
  • IODD Interpreter
  • Basically, the IODD is interpreted in such a way that it is as simple as possible for the user to operate and observe. For the PLC programmer, at least for most programming systems, it is necessary to have more detailed information about the structure and addressing of the parameters, process data and diagnostics. For this purpose, the IO-Link Device Tool provides a corresponding view of the IODD.
  • IODD Viewer
  • The process data can be visualized graphically in trend curves using the Scope function. It is possible to display up to 8 elements at the same time. Furthermore, all process data elements can be recorded for up to one day. In addition, each trend line can be assigned a specific color, screen position and scaling for differentiation.
  • Scope Funktion
  • The Generic function enables IO-Link devices to be operated even without IODD. The data is displayed as raw data and addressing is done via index and subindex. In addition, there is a pull-down list with the standard parameters. This means that they can be read and written quickly and easily without tedious looking up in the specification or manual.
    Im Falle, wenn keine IODD vorhanden ist, erscheint im Tool nur der Reiter „Generic“. Ansonsten ist er als Ergänzung vorhanden, was insbesondere für den SPS-Programmierer nützlich sein kann, da hier oft Index- und Subindex-Adressierung verwendet wird und die Rohdaten helfen, Fehler zu finden.
    Im Ausgabefenster des Reiters „Generic“ werden auch die Port und Device Diagnosen (Events) angezeigt.
  • Generic Funktion
  • With the Open IO Device GUI it is possible to add a graphical user interface to the tables of the IODD view with simple means. This is especially helpful for the distribution of the devices. Graphical user interfaces can then be created very easily in VB.NET or C# according to your own wishes. We provide the specification with sample projects free of charge.
  • Open IO Device GUI Schnittstelle
  • IO-Link has a firmware update profile that can be used to update the firmware of IO-Link devices in a standardized manner. This functionality is supported by the IO-Link Device Tool V5.1. There is also an import function that can be used to read firmware packages into the tool's internal database. In the device interface, there is then an additional tab for the firmware update function. If the firmware package contains a new IODD, this is automatically imported and assigned to the device after the update. The firmware update function is available for all supported IO-Link masters.
    Firmware Update
  • For the development of the devices, TMG offers a packager for its stack customers, which packages and encrypts the firmware. This packager uses the information of the IODD, so that most of the information is already consistently available. In case a new IODD is required after the firmware update, it is packaged as well. The Packager can be used with the Windows user interface or integrated into the firmware generation via the command line.

TMG USB IO-Link Master V2 SE

IO-Link Master SE

Connect your IO-Link device easily with the included TMG USB IO-Link Master V2 SE. All IO-Link devices can be connected regardless of the IO-Link version. The IO-Link master has three LEDs that indicate the status and SIO mode. The IO-Link devices are connected via the M12 connector. Pin 2 can be used both as SIO mode and as a second IO-Link channel when using a Y-cable (cable not included). IO-Link devices with low current requirements (up to 80mA) can be operated without an external power supply, otherwise the supplied external power supply 24V/1A must be connected.
