Parker announces connectivity enhancements to its valve portfolio

11 June 2019

Parker Hannifin has added an expanded range of network connectivity options to its valve platforms with the addition of an easy to configure, cost effective Industrial Ethernet node.

The addition of the P2M Industrial Ethernet network node provides an inexpensive means of connecting the company’s H Series valve, its Moduflex valve and the H Micro valve families to the Industrial Ethernet network.

The availability of the P2M node means that customers can benefit from low-cost connectivity with integrated diagnostics, making network connectivity an affordable and beneficial alternative to traditional hardwired networks. The new Industrial Ethernet node reinforces Parker’s continued focus on reducing complexity and cost at the machine, while also supporting the simple diagnostics required for alignment with the needs and objectives of Smart Factory & Industry 4.0.

In addition, the P2M Industrial Ethernet Node is safe power capable, meaning auxiliary valve power can be supplied by a safety device in support of the European Machinery Directive. The P2M Node is offered with two M12 ports for network in/out and a single M12 connection for valve auxiliary power.

Parker now offers a full range of Industrial Ethernet connectivity options including EtherNet/IP, Profinet IO, EtherCAT, Ethernet PowerLink, Modbus TCP/IP and CC-Link IE protocols. For more information on the P2M Industrial Ethernet Node please visit the website at:
