Emerson will demonstrate at SPS IPC Drives 2018 how its advanced automation solutions enable manufacturers to improve plant reliability, safety and availability. Using Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications and technology to place the right information in the hands of the right experts, Emerson facilitates better and faster decision-making that helps prevent unexpected downtime, a reduction in production performance and higher maintenance costs that all affect profitability. By embracing the opportunities presented by Industry 4.0 and digital transformation, manufacturers can maximize the performance of their plant and reduce operating costs. To help them achieve this, Emerson provides digital plant architectures and intelligent devices that deliver improved control and greater insight into the performance and health of machinery, plants and production.
Plantweb™ digital ecosystem
Emerson’s Plantweb™ digital ecosystem, which harnesses the power of Industry 4.0 and IIoT applications, can be easily implemented without adding system complexity, leading to improved production performance and availability, and ensuring product quality and machinery and worker safety. Emerson industry experts will be available to explain how the use of standardized communication protocols provides greater access to process and device performance data, and how this can provide actionable insights, enabling smarter decisions.
Diagnostics, sensing and monitoring skills
Emerson will demonstrate how its ASCO™ and AVENTICS™ fluid control and pneumatics technology uses diagnostics, sensing and monitoring capabilities to improve system uptime and performance, enhance safety and optimize energy usage. Visitors will be shown how connectivity, via a range of communications including Ethernet and IO-Link, provides remote access to valve health information, enabling faults to be identified earlier and maintenance scheduling to be improved.
The latest Rosemount™ and Micro Motion™ measurement technology, including analytical, level, temperature, pressure and flow devices, will be on display and Emerson experts will outline how pervasive sensing applications, enabled by wireless networks, deliver actionable information that can be used to quickly improve operations.
