Fieldbus manifold system
From Rexroth Mecman (Lexington, KY), the F-Design decentralized pneumatic fieldbus manifold system permits direct control of generic I/O field devices, including sensor inputs and valve solenoid coils.
This is possible through a serial communications link such as DeviceNet. Manifold may be split into segments without adding costs associated with multiple communication nodes says the company. Supports several well-known protocols. Components are IP65/NEMA 4 rated with valve flow ranges from 0.05 to 4.8 Cv.
