Digitalized pneumatics replace components with apps

By Chemical Engineering |

The new pneumatic Motion Terminal VTEM (photo) features applications (apps) that can replace over 50 individual components. The new method of function integration — combined with software apps — will simplify the value chain, since only one piece of hardware will be required. Piezo technology, integrated stroke and pressure sensors come together with motion-control apps. Changes in pneumatic functions and adaptations to new formats are controlled via apps by changing parameters. The integrated intelligent sensors for control, diagnostics and self-learning tasks will eliminate the need for additional components, according to the manufacturer. — Festo AG & Co.
