Where innovationmeets reliability.
recovery capability. Each time the fieldbusmanifold is powered up, its configuration andparameter settings are saved into the wirelessARM module’s nonvolatile memory.
If there is a power spike or other criticalevent which damages any of the modules ofthe G3 system, the modular ARM devicewill automatically reconfigure any replacement modules without the need of a laptopor user commissioning. The auto-recoverymodule (ARM) automatically saves all theconfiguration data, avoiding valuable timeloss and allowing the valve manifold toquickly get back into service.
This kind of backup intelligence, based
on the use of smart digital technology, is
a key requirement for many automation
end-users: Instead of requiring a controls
engineer to recover and reprogram the
valve system functionality through the PLC
or laptop, a service technician or machine
operator can easily perform the replace-
ment to restore the valve function with
minimal effort and without using any spe-
cial tools or software.
Wireless Expands Io T Capabilities

systems. Wireless interfaces can simplify
and streamline how plant floor personnel or
maintenance technicians access diagnostics
from pneumatic valve systems. There’s no
need to gain access to the machine’s network
or download a special app—the real-time,
actionable data is safely available via a stan-
dard web browser.
The Wireless ARM is not meant to replace
high-speed, wired automation networks like
EtherNet/IP or ProfiNet, for valve control.
Rather, it provides a simple wireless diagnostic
interface into smart pneumatic valve systems
platforms and represents a key addition to the
expanding range of smart digital technologies
being integrated into today’s pneumatics.
It is also an example of how companieslike Emerson continue to invest in innovation and advanced thinking about ways toleverage proven technologies like wirelessconnectivity. As a result, manufacturers areable to reduce production downtime andsimplify valve system commissioning. Inaddition, these developments are designedto create a path for using diagnostics andpneumatic device performance data foranalytics and further expanding IIOT functionality.
