Valve terminals with function integration

Integrate electrical, pneumatic and mechanical functions

Thanks to the versatile individual combination options for the different functions on a valve terminal, its configuration can be adjusted so it precisely suits the application. The function integration thus helps to optimise and reduce the costs of your entire process chain.

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

Increasing efficiency using function integration

Because the components are reduced to just one, potential savings in time and money are possible along the entire value chain.

 

 

 

 

Application example: save 825 minutes using function integration

 

  • In engineering some 470 minutes are saved compared to a conventional solution.
  • The time required for purchasing and warehousing is reduced by a total of 170 minutes.
  • For assembly and commissioning, including reduced troubleshooting, 185 minutes are saved.
