Two new modules for Beckhoff's modular MX-System controllers allow pneumatic valves from Festo and SMC to be integrated directly.
SMC Corporation's ZKJ vacuum manifold with ejector system is Profinet-enabled.
SMC's Dynamic Technology Show is being presented as a platform for education and engagement around SMC technologies.
The Festo Motion Terminal is claimed to be the world's first pneumatic automation platform to be controlled by apps.
The Bürkert AirLINE Type 8647 valve island offers complete integration into the SIMATIC ET 200SP decentralised peripheral system from Siemens.
The Bürkert AirLINE Type 8652 valve island offers adjustable monitoring and diagnostic functions that improve system availability while at the same time enabling preventive maintenance, according to the company.
The Bürkert AirLINE (Type 8652) and AirLINE Field (Type 8653) valve islands are designed for applications in the pharmaceutical, cosmetics and food and beverage industries as well as for water treatment applications.
SMC has launched an addition to the SY series of valve manifolds with an IP69K rating, targeted at the food and packing market.
The MPA-C valve terminal allows users and designers to create decentralised installations without a control cabinet in harsh and intensively cleaned environments in the food and beverage industry.
Many processing plants have adopted pneumatic process control system methodologies. However, as the complexity of these control systems has grown, reliability and integrity have become more critical - as has the need for appropriate specification.
A multifunctional stream switching system for process analytical instrumentation that is capable of integrating stream selection and filtering functions into one compact, modular assembly is available from Parker Hannifin.
The ASCO Numatics 503 Series of pneumatic directional control valves with ultra-high flow ratings is designed for automation and piloting applications across a wide range of applications.
The VTUG valve terminal plug-in offers multiple variations and a highly simple and inexpensive fieldbus connection for all standard fieldbuses and ethernet as well as IO-Link.
The Inox modular valve and block system incorporates an all stainless steel pneumatically actuated valve, and standard block modules with eight standard port channels.
In today’s highly automated machines, fieldbus valve manifolds are replacing conventional hard-wired solutions. They more easily perform vital functions by integrating communication interfaces to pneumatic valve manifolds with I/O capabilities.
