Digitalized interfaces for connected I4.0 hydraulic applications

Digitalized interfaces

for connected I4.0 hydraulic applications

Application-oriented digital interfaces for proportional high-response valves from Rexroth

Work to connect all actuators in mechanical and plant engineering is progressing quickly.
The requirements here range from simple status queries to decentralized, synchronized movements.
With application-oriented solutions, Rexroth opens up new ways of connecting hydraulic valves digitally in an economical manner.

Only with a digital interface can users change parameters via software during operation in order to react flexibly to new requirements. It also allows quick diagnostics and condition monitoring and thus increases machine availability.
Rexroth caters for various concepts and is the only manufacturer at the moment that caters for your own specific requirements.

IFB valves

Multi-Ethernet field bus valves: “IFB”

Directional control valves with a multi-Ethernet interface reduce system costs with integrated safety and additional functions. Optionally, pressure and force control can be achieved with internal or external pressure sensors. Thanks to the integrated safety interface (EN13849 Kat4Ple) which allows a single-channel shut-off, the costs of safety applications are reduced. The integrated control functions for pressure and force control help to reduce your planning and commissioning outlay.

IAC valves

Multi-Ethernet field bus valves with integrated axis control: “IAC”

IAC valves with integrated axis control take over demanding control tasks. In addition to the benefits of the IFB valves, these valves allow you to select pressure, force and position control as well as closed-loop control functions. The interfaces for the pressure sensor and position sensor are integrated into robust M12 systems. A wizard guides you through the commissioning process in just a few steps.
