Powerlink enables seamless integration of valve terminals
16 August 2015
B&R has created a system for seamlessly integrating pneumatic valve terminal in cooperation with partners Festo, ASCO Numatics and Aventics.
Valve terminal families from all three companies can easily be integrated within the B&R engineering environment via the Powerlink communications protocol 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.
Integrating pneumatics into a B&R automation system allows high-speed response times; mechanical sequences can be more precisely coordinated, opening up new possibilities in machine design.
