What is the name of your product?
Smart Pneumatics Analyzer (SPA)
What problem does your product solve?
Many customers find it difficult to get started with Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). With the Aventics Smart Pneumatics Analyzer (SPA), Emerson offers a mobile solution that is easy to integrate. The suitcase shows how the customer can obtain digitized information using existing standard components. The used algorithms written by our experts are based on decades of know-how from product development and application.
What is the product’s main benefit for the customer?
With just a few steps, energy consumption can be recorded and leaks in the compressed air system can be detected. This enables the customer to save money: The costs for leckages can add up very quickly to several thousand euros per year per machine.
Do you classify your product as a smart component? If so, why would you call your product “intelligent/smart”?
The SPA contains all functions to start with IIoT and carry out measurements without intervening in the PLC controlled processes. The information gained helps our customers to better understand and analyze their machines. The Smart Pneumatics Monitor (SPM) included in the SPA, combined with our fieldbus solution AES, evaluates existing sensor signals and reliably derives status information from them. For example, predictive maintenance is possible
Are there any other important points that you can think of?
Since all sensor data is processed locally (edge computing), no additional software or cloud connection is required.
