Cast off for the journey into the future of industrial communication

Real-time wireless communication, full connectivity and interoperability from the field level to the cloud: these are all prerequisites for realizing the factory of the future. In order to actually make use of what is technically possible, all automation providers have to agree on an open standard from the field level to IoT communication. There has been great progress here: The Field Level Communication (FLC) initiative of the OPC Foundation for full interoperability of field devices is gaining momentum.

New generation of flow sharing (LUDV) valves: modular RS20 platform from Rexroth

No compromises when it comes to operating life and robustness – this was the basic principle when coming up with the new design. With a maximum flow of 300 l/min per section, the RS20 platform from Rexroth achieves an even lower pressure loss compared to its mono block M7 20 and M6 22 predecessors. At the same time, the sandwich plate design allows any combination of small and large valve sections. As a result, the specific flow can be provided for each actuator in mobile machines. Manufacturers can match the sections to ensure that their requirements are optimally met.

Digital service connects hydraulic power unit with the IoT

With the new CytroBox generation of hydraulic power units, Bosch Rexroth connects fluid technology with the Internet of Things (IoT) as a standard feature – for maximum availability and lower maintenance costs. The CytroConnect software solution integrated into the unit uses sensors to monitor the main operating states and analyze them online. A dashboard shows maintenance technicians all the relevant parameters and provides important maintenance instructions. In addition to the Freemium basic module, machine manufacturers and users can add further digital service options, for example to receive error messages via push alerts or to use the data analyzed by artificial intelligence for predictive maintenance.
