Big trend: function integration on valve terminals

Function integration means increased productivity and reduced installation

  • Electrical components: up to 512 digital/analogue I/O, temperature and pressure sensors
  • Pneumatics: up to 128 valves
  • Proportional pneumatics: up to eight pressure regulators on the bus
  • Servopneumatics: positioning and soft stop for up to eight axes
  • Motion control: electrical drives, synchronous/asynchronous/2.5 D interpolation
  • Safety engineering: press valves, special valves and start-up pressurisation
Application example: Save 825 minutes using function integration
