Description
The dock “thinks” for itself
The dock “thinks” for itself Decentralised Control in Bulk Material Handling

The world of bulk material handling seems easy at first glance: moving, filling, delivering. The art of dealing with a variety of different materials, however, lies in the details, such as the docking and undocking of containers at weighing stations. In the process, crosscontaminations

and the release of dusts can occur. AZO CleanDock prevents this

problem. Its latest generation can do even more: it “thinks” for itself. Directly attached to the dock, the integrated controller CEC of the modular electrical terminal CPX from Festo ensures additional process security and shortened commissioning times.

All set for automation with IO-Link
All set for automation with IO-Link Point-to-point!

Standardised IO-Link technology (IEC 61131-9) makes communication with sensors and actuators simple and economical. The result of an evolutionary development, this low-cost connection technology with three or five conductors achieves point-to-point connection without complex wiring and with minimal material requirements.

An overview of the automation platform CPX

 

 

Single-platform solutions

• Digital and analogue standard tasks

• Demanding I/O tasks with single-channel diagnostics and parameterisation

• Temperature, displacement and pressure measurement

• Electrical and pneumatic safety functions

• Integrated, comprehensive diagnostics and condition monitoring

• Subordinate, decentralised installation system

 

Combine these functions directly with the operating elements

• Pilot or process valves

• Control valves for cylinders, grippers, vacuum

• Pressure regulators

• Servopneumatic positioning systems

• Electric drives and axes

 

For control, choose from fi eldbus/Ethernet as remote I/O or the following front-end controllers:

• CPX-FEC (Festo mini control system)

• CPX-CEC (CODESYS controller with 32-bit processor,  400 MHz, CANopen master)

• PC Worx (controller for control environments from Phoenix Contact)

White paper: Plants based on the Lego principle
White paper: Plants based on the Lego principle Modular automation with valve terminals

Smaller batches and different types of product in the same plant – these are the market demands to which more and more manufacturers in

the process industries need to adjust. The answer is plants based on the “Lego principle”. Users can add modules or switch them off in line

with requirements. But this is only possible with modular automation.

Pneumatic automation concepts
Pneumatic automation concepts A comparison of individual valves and valve terminals

Individual valves or valve terminals – which is the most suitable option for actuating pneumatically automated process valves? What are the technological and economic differences between the two? We will use a cost comparison to compare and contrast the two options. And what are the differences in terms of commissioning? Which diagnostic options are available with valve terminals for reducing unscheduled downtime? These are the questions that will be examined in this article.

Pinch valve for heavy-duty applications
Pinch valve for heavy-duty applications Extremely low wear!

The heavy-duty pinch valve is ideal for use with abrasive or corrosive

fl uids, pastes, pulps, powders, or media with a high solids content.

Its high performance, extremely low wear, and long service life in

open and close mode as well as in proportional control applications

make it very suitable for use in mineral processing, in the cement

and construction industry, in iron and steel production, in metallurgy

and foundries, or in aluminium production.
