October 29, 2015 - B&R can connect pneumatic valve terminals from Festo, ASCO, Numatics and Aventics to B&R automation solutions using POWERLINK.

Valve terminal families can easily be integrated in the B&R engineering environment using a device description file. Proven functionalities – graphical display, simple component configuration, automatic firmware downloads and easy-to-use diagnostics features – are available for valve terminals just as they are available for other B&R products. This shortens commissioning times, maximizes system performance and productivity, and reduces downtime to an absolute minimum.

One of the things that characterizes the POWERLINK communication protocol is its high performance in terms of cycle time and clock accuracy. The integration of pneumatic solutions into the B&R automation system allows high-speed response times in the field of pneumatics as well. Mechanical sequences can be more precisely coordinated, opening up entirely new concepts in machine design.
