Bürkert Fluid Control Systems is raising awareness of a comprehensive process automation solution that creates a remote field I/O network which is compact, reliable and not exclusive to any specific communication protocol.
And with considerable engineering efficiencies achieved, Bürkert customers are saving up to 40% on total system costs.
Designed for maximum flexibility, AirLINE is unique in allowing Rockwell’s Point I/O modules, Siemens ET200S modules, Phoenix Inline I/O modules or Wago I/O System 750 modules to be combined with high-performance Bürkert pneumatics mounted on a single DIN rail.
The series 8644 remote process actuation and control system combines digital I/O, including a full complement of pneumatic outputs, analogue I/O, including direct RTDs and T/Cs, and specialty signals (RS232, High Speed counters, etc) in a single node. By developing this system, facilitating the entire I/O requirement to a single node, Bürkert has resolved the single most limiting (and costly) factor in the use of I/O networks.
All components of the AirLINE are modular, allowing enclosures to be easily customised to specific requirements of size, flow and switching function. Fieldbus connectivity is made via customer-defined standard industrial fieldbus communications.
“Partnering with industry leaders Rockwell, Siemens,
“Bürkert adapts itself to the customer’s needs and to the systems already in place, rather than straight-jacketing customers with limited options and alternatives,” said Mr Booysen.
The AirLINE 11 mm- and 16 mm-wide solenoid pilot valves are available in 3/2, 5/2, 5/3 standard and 5/2 latching functions. The system handles flow rates from 180 to 700 liters per minute, with a pressure range of Bar.
“The system enables pneumatic valves to be electrically connected directly to a remote I/O module, without any individual coil wiring, numbering or termination required. Each valve is simply a digital output addressed by the network” said Mr Booysen.
The Bürkert system is suited to systems and processes in water treatment, transportation and automotive, food and beverage manufacture including dairy and viticulture, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, semiconductor manufacturing, cosmetics, pulp and paper processing, chemicals, textile dyeing and drying equipment.
