May 31, 2019 – Emerson has introduced a tool to help pneumatic system users see the potential benefits of integrating IIoT. By connecting the AVENTICS Smart Pneumatics Analyzer to the compressed air supply on an existing machine, users will have analysis options for key machine characteristics such as compressed air consumption and possible leakages.
The portable analyzer case contains a Smart Pneumatics Monitor, AS series air preparation units and a tablet for visualizing the live data. Emerson personnel can show a user within minutes how they can use IIoT-enabled data for insights into their own machine.
The monitor initially detects the system operating state, analyzes data, and provides this processed information to users for status-oriented maintenance, for example. The Smart Pneumatics Monitor evaluates the data locally and uses it to generate information about the status of the system. All data from the valves, as well as from components connected to the I/O modules on the valve system, is read into a microprocessor and processed by means of mathematical algorithms. These algorithms are based on decades of expertise in AVENTICS pneumatic product engineering and application.
