Industry 4.0 ready valve island range extended

06 September 2021

Camozzi Automation has extended its range of Industry 4.0 ready Series D valve islands, with the introduction of 2 new sizes; Size 2 (16mm) and Size 5 (10.5mm & 16mm).

Size 2 has been designed for applications where a compact solution, combined with a high flow rate is required, while Size 5 offers a mix of sizes (10.5mm and 16mm) on a single valve island that offers a common multipole or fieldbus connection. Across the range, Series D now offers flow rates  from 250Nl/min up to 2000 Nl/min.

Series D valve islands are said to offer a versatile solution, allowing expandable pneumatic and electrical functions in restricted spaces. Constructed entirely of aluminium, the range is Industry 4.0 ready owing to Camozzi’s advanced CoilVision technology which employs integrated electronics to constantly monitor the operating parameters of the solenoid driving the spool. Data, including power consumption and coil temperature, is automatically analysed and processed by software algorithms to determine the real time health status of the coils.

Results transmitted from the valve island to the PLC or through WLAN to an IIoT gateway and onto the Cloud, can be used to predict a potential fault in the coil before it has the opportunity to cause disruption. In addition to the diagnostics being captured on a remote dashboard, the valve body also incorporates blinking LEDs that can indicate a potential fault.
