SPS IPC Drives: Valve island designed for food and beverage industry

SPS IPC Drives: Valve island designed for food and beverage industry
Maximum system availability and process reliability for pneumatic controllers is the goal of a partnership between Bürkert and Siemens. The result of the cooperation is the new Type 8647 AirLINE SP valve island, which is compatible with the Siemens I/O system SIMATIC ET 200SP. Bürkert will present the valve island system at SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg from 22nd to 24th November 2016.

Complete your process - even in the event of a power failure

Complete your process - even in the event of a power failure
Imagine that you are drilling a hole, but in the middle of it all the power goes out and the drill breaks off. Regardless of which process you have just started, whether you are turning, milling or bending or in whatever form you are working on a workpiece: in the event of a power failure, the work step should be completed quickly and the tool moved out of the workpiece. This is usually achieved with an external uninterruptible power supply - or with a clever automation solution.

Solenoid control without the bang: working in explosive atmospheres

Solenoid control without the bang: working in explosive atmospheres
The automation of process control systems is very important for improving efficiency and reliability. In the majority of cases, this can be achieved quite easily, but in situations where the whole atmosphere poses a potential risk, finding the best solution can be quite a challenge. Paul Hobden, Bürkert UK ATEX solenoid valve champion, looks at the challenges surrounding process control in potentially explosive atmospheres and how they can be overcome.
