Developing reliable and functionally safe electromechanical and hydraulic solutions for power generation plants that ensure the stability of supply networks.
As pneumatic technology requires far less pressure than that needed by hydraulic applications it is used more often in automation applications for industry.
Aventics, a leading manufacturer of industrial pneumatic drive and control solutions, distributed and serviced by Tectra Automation, has integrated electronics into its pneumatic range. Examples of this integration include the ED series electro-pneumatic pressure regulators and AES modular electronics for the advanced valve generation.
This range of pneumatic products provides the functionality needed for machine networking, making them ideal for use in industrial automation applications.
Software and intelligent algorithms that have been custom designed for hydraulic applications have reached a stage where they equalise non-linearity inherent in fluid technology.
This can be seen in Bosch Rexroth’s Sytronix series. It combines the best properties of both hydraulic and electric systems enabling steel or iron constructed valve controls to embrace industrial automation. It achieves this through open operation by decentralising the intelligence in the electronically controlled device.
Bosch Rexroth has also integrated its electrohydraulic expertise into its IndraMotion MLC control solution software, opening the door for industrial automation applications.
This opens the door for industrial automation applications as the technology includes special characteristics that are intrinsic in fluid technology to the point where it replaces elegant programming with parameterisation.
Conquer the traditional boundaries between machine controls, the world of the Internet and IoT – the Internet of Things.
