Pneumatics diagnostics and integration
The new Drive and Diagnostic Link (DDL) from Bosch Rexroth’s Pneumatics Div. makes it possible for pneumatics to be fully integrated across the overall control system on a packaging machine.
The DDL checks every valve using criteria such as short circuit display and it displays a clear text message. Rather than wait until there is a fault the diagnostics check can be conducted as soon as the machine is turned on. It can be connected safely and swiftly into an existing PLC control system.
