The digital communication of intelligent field devices and the transmission of process, device and diagnostic data are becoming increasingly important in process automation.
This development is also playing an ever more vital role in valve technology. For example, intelligent control valves can be better monitored through greater networking as well as availability and product quality increased through diagnostic information.
Digital positioner Type 8694 with IO-Link interface
By implementing an IO-Link interface, we have equipped our positioner Type 8694 with future-oriented technology, thereby meeting the requirements of Industry 4.0.
Transmission of parameter and diagnostic data
Compared to other communication standards, IO-Link can be used to transmit both cyclic process data and acyclic parameter and diagnostic data between the valve and higher-level automation systems. This allows you to access your device data during operation while keeping an eye on the process status at all times.
Simple planning of maintenance intervals
The extended diagnostic functions, such as limit value definition of the operating parameters and active status messages, enable predictive maintenance of your plant to increase plant availability.
Your advantages at a glance
✓ Comprehensive functionality for parametrisation and diagnostics
✓ Simple connection of field devices to the control level
✓ Fast device replacement for service and plant maintenance activities
✓ Easy start-up and cabling
✓ Simple retrofitting of existing plants
Now available with the Bürkert system bus interface
In addition to the IO-Link and AS-Interface, the positioner Type 8694 is also available with the Bürkert system bus (büS) communication interface. For customer-specific system solutions in particular, büS offers numerous advantages, including the simple networking of büS-capable Bürkert products. This allows them to be configured and parameterised directly with the Bürkert Communicator.
