Configure new Device in Turck IO Device
  1. Check following video to configure a new Turck Device that is was not configured before. The video below shows the steps to configure a Zimmer gripper that is connected to port-1 on a new Turck IO Device (no configuration have been set before on the Turck IO device).
  1. In case of pre-configured Turck IO Device, then follow the next video to load the old configuration data. Then follow the video above starting at 0:35. The video below show the how to load the configured data from existing Turck IO Device before adding a new connected device configuration.

Now the Turck IO Device is configured and ready for work.
