Valve system with embedded wireless connectivity

A wireless automatic recovery module (ARM) for the Emerson Aventics G3 fieldbus platform makes it easy for technicians to perform pneumatic valve system commissioning and diagnostics from a mobile phone, tablet or laptop computer.

"The Aventics G3 fieldbus platform is the first in the industry to offer wireless technology that puts valve system configuration and diagnostics at the control engineer´s fingertips," says Enrico De Carolis, vice president of global technology, fluid control and pneumatics, at Emerson. "This offering furthers our quest to help manufacturers reduce production downtime and simplify valve system commissioning, while creating a path for using diagnostics/prognostics for analytics and advancing our offering of intelligent devices with IIoT capability."

The new wireless ARM module and Aventics G3 fieldbus platform are designed for pneumatic valve system applications in the automotive, food and beverage, tire, packaging and metalworking industries. The wireless ARM module provides easy access to the Aventics G3 fieldbus platform´s diagnostic and commissioning capabilities via an internal Wi-Fi access point and mobile website — even when the valve system is located inside a machine or on a ceiling. It offers the visual benefits of a hard-wired human machine interface (HMI) at lower cost and with higher flexibility. The wireless ARM module generates error notification for alarms, voltage levels, short circuits, module errors, open load errors and distribution errors to reduce system downtime.

The device has a small footprint that connects easily to the Aventics G3 fieldbus platform in the space of a jumper clip. It features three power settings for low-, medium-, or high-distance signals to ensure safe and secure access to data — regardless of where the valve system is mounted. Additional security benefits include wireless signal that can be turned off during configuration, multiple password options, and diagnostic and commissioning information provided with no control capability. The wireless ARM module is compatible with Ethernet/IP DLR, and Profinet protocols. Additional protocols are targeted for future release.
