Hydraulics with IO-Link: Reduced effort, high value

Content
 
 

Challenge:

Increased requirements for flexible machinery and systems in almost all industries calls for continuous diagnostics and predictive maintenance, and increased availability of machinery.

 
 

Rexroth Solution:

  • Now, even hydraulic proportional valves can be intelligently, easily and cost-effectively integrated in bi-directional digital communication.
  • Simplified commissioning in hardware and software enables flexible adjustment of hydraulic valves for varying production processes.
  • Extended diagnosis information enables condition-oriented and predictive maintenance concepts, and standstill and maintenance times are reduced.

IO-Link

 
 

Key Insights and Considerations:

  • Open standard for bi-directional point-to-point connections in parallel to field bus
  • Easy connection with standard cables and M12 connectors
  • No additional engineering tool necessary, possible configuration via control system
  • Data for predictive maintenance and quick device replacement
  • Industry 4.0-compatible hydraulic components for vertical flow of information
