IO Link, and the Automation Platform Network - when a combination of networks becomes attractive

It is critical that suppliers of remote I/O systems can connect to the most important networks used in industry today. PROFINET, EthernetIP, EtherCAT® and Modbus are all common networks used in Industrial Automation but how does a manufacturer of machines standardise, when their various customers specify different networks in their factories?

Nigel Dawson, head of Business Development Electric Automation at

Festo explains.

Industry 4.0
Industry 4.0 From vision to reality – Status 2019

Many concepts from the past have been overtaken by the fourth industrial revolution: business models, partnerships, customer interfaces, value chains, and even the traditional automation pyramid – all are undergoing huge change. As an innovator and trendsetter in fieldbus technology, Festo will make a major contribution to reshaping the future with new concepts for Industry 4.0.

Decentralised control concepts
Decentralised control concepts

Installation and control concepts are influencing each other more than ever before, especially as we move towards Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT). It is only through effective interaction between these architectures that modular, flexible and adaptable production concepts with decentralised intelligence, pre-processing, autonomous machines or subsystems, cyber-physical systems – in other words, smart factories – will be successful.

Study on parallel kinematic system with CPX/EMCA
Study on parallel kinematic system with CPX/EMCA Robotics without a control cabinet

Robotics is getting ready for Industry 4.0 with the high-speed handling system EXPT with CPX/EMCA. CPX control technology from Festo for an IP65/67 environment and the numerous functions included in the new “integrated drive” EMCA facilitate robotic functionality without a control cabinet that is close to revolutionary. The pioneering combination of standard and cost-effective components is further enhanced by the latest Festo hardware and software. And it offers even more:

 

Valve terminal MPA – 3 variants, 3 x excellent
Valve terminal MPA – 3 variants, 3 x excellent Highly communicative!

Maximum function integration, many electrical connection options,

multi-pin plug, Festo I-Port, fi eldbus and a comprehensive diagnostics concept: that is the MPA. And it is extremely compact and has the latest valve technology.

  • New: MPA-C – hygienic
  • MPA-L – highly modular
  • MPA-S – communicative and with many functions

White paper: Reduce energy costs in compressed air systems by up to 60%

In order to survive in a tough competitive environment, many companies are searching for ways to make savings in their production. Such savings can often be found in their existing compressed air systems, which have generally been in place for years. Up to 60% of energy costs can be saved through optimisation at both the production facility and system level.

Simplified_Motion_Series
Simplified_Motion_Series Simplified functionality for simple movements.

The simplicity of pneumatics is now combined for the first time with the advantages of electric automation thanks to the Simplified Motion Series. These integrated drives are the perfect solution for all users who are looking for an electric alternative for very simple movement and positioning tasks, but don't want the commissioning process for traditional electric drive systems that can often be quite complex. Operation is simply based on the "plug and work" principle, without the need for any software. Digital I/O (DIO) and IO-Link are always automatically included – a product with two types of control as standard.
