SPS 2019 Demonstrating Intelligent Devices and Digital Plant Architectures
Emerson demonstrated how its intelligent devices, edge controllers and digital plant architectures enable improved plant reliability and availability and comprehensive manufacturing control and production optimisation at Smart Production Solutions (SPS), in Nuremberg (Germany) held from November 26 – 28, 2019.
SPS is a leading trade fair for electrical automation in Europe. Manufacturers need to maximise the performance of their plant, increase availability and reduce operational costs to remain competitive. Unexpected downtime, a reduction in production performance and availability, and higher maintenance costs impacts profitability. With Emerson, end users will be able to expand operations and supply chain control — the process manufacturing of goods all the way through to assembly and packaging, states the firm.
The company’s experts demonstrated its solutions in power supplies for hazardous areas, machinery health monitoring and modern control and machine safety systems. In addition, it also demonstrated solutions for fluid control, pneumatics, measurement and industrial computing.
The company has extensive experience in providing machinery health data to support predictive maintenance practices. Experts at the firm’s booth enabled visitors to discover how the use of standardised communication protocols provides greater access to not only this information, but process and device performance data too, enabling smarter, real-time decision-making, adds the company.
In addition, the company’s industry experts were also available to explain how Emerson’s complete portfolio of industrial automation solutions can help one improve the reliability and availability of one’s plant to ensure one continues to meet market demands.
