Emerson has showcased intelligent industrial controls and automation technologies at SPS Fair 2022 held in Nuremberg, Germany
The latest programmable automation controllers, SCADA/HMI software, smart pneumatics and industrial internet of things (IIoT) solutions and electric actuator solutions were the product highlights featured by Emerson.
Sophisticated analytics, precise control
Emerson showed how its electric linear motion control solutions provided original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and manufacturers greater flexibility and efficiency. Integrated, scalable and precise control has been provided by Emerson PACMotion™ high-speed servo motion controllers. These operate Emerson’s new AVENTICS™ Series Servo Profile Advanced (SPRA) Electric Actuators, which offer multiple screw technologies and a high level of precision and repeatability. An IIoT gateway with analytics software offers access to application performance and device condition information presented on a simple dashboard. This fully integrated solution provides assured repeatability and accuracy, helping to lower engineering time and also enable users to identify issues earlier, improving productivity and lowering total cost of ownership.
Product highlights displayed at the SPS Fair 2022:
Multimedia Monitoring Solution
Emerson’s multimedia monitoring solutions can help optimise energy and utilities usage. The demonstration features a turnkey engineered solution, incorporating an edge controller with integrated analytics, pneumatic valve system and power supply. Using open protocol communications to connect to a broad range of instruments and sensors, data is aggregated and visualised to enable monitoring, analysis and trending of compressed air, gas, water, steam and energy consumptions. The multimedia monitoring solution is ideally suited for automated applications such as clean-in-place systems, which often consume over 30% of utilities. Accurate monitoring and analytics enable the user to optimise consumption and to save 30%-45% of media usage for a single clean-in-place skid.

AVENTICS Series SPRA Electric Rod-Style Linear Actuator
Emerson’s AVENTICS Series SPRA Electric Actuators are a new line of precise and highly repeatable rod-style cylinders. The SPRA actuators offer three screw technologies which include a precision ball screw, which provides exceptional durability and accuracy for applications that need optimal quality or throughput, a cost-effective lead screw option and roller screws for precision, speed and heavy loads. This versatile range of rod-style cylinders lets users configure electric actuators to meet exacting application requirements, such as improved sustainability or efficiency, rather than settle for standard approximation.

PACSystems RXi HMI: Machine Visualisation
PACSystems RXi Human-Machine Interface (HMI) is a next-generation machine visualisation solution that provides easy-to-use, smartphone-like graphical displays, but without sacrificing rugged, industrial performance. PACSystems RXi HMI is designed with projective capacitive touchscreen technology that allows users to interact with the visual display with multitouch capabilities like swipe, pinch or zoom to move to the next screen or expand a chart, enabling easy operation by a wide range of personnel with varying levels of training and experience. PACSystems RXi HMI is HTML5-ready, which allows users to collaborate from anywhere, so that the operations, management and maintenance teams can all view the same screen at the same time, no matter their location. This immediate sharing of information and access to expertise reduce maintenance costs and improve productivity. In addition, faster access to data-based operational insights helps to maximise overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).

PACSystems RSTi-EP CPE200 Controller: Large PLC Performance — Small Form Factor
The PACSystems RSTi-EP CPE200 compact controller family delivers large programmable logic controller (PLC) capability in a small, cost-effective form factor so machine manufacturers do not have to sacrifice performance for price. It provides security-by-design, open programming and open communications built in, significantly reducing cost and complexity for OEMs and end users. A range of advanced features comes standard, such as OPC UA communication over high-speed 1-Gb Ethernet and C programming capabilities, plus the advantages of Emerson support. In addition, it includes analytics and is IIoT-ready in order to future-proof systems for new technologies or existing process equipment.
