Numatics G3 Electronics Demo – Easy Commissioning and Fast Diagnostics

Wade Wright | July 24th, 2014

As the Pneumatic Product Manager for the Cross Company Automation Group, I have had numerous discussions with machine builders about their frustrations with commissioning fieldbus valve manifolds and trouble-shooting problems after they are up and running. They tell me about lugging their laptop computers around to connect to each communication node.

If a problem arises, they either have to repeat this process or try to decipher the flashing color LED’s to determine what the problem is and where it is located. This is the standard way to commission and trouble-shoot the fieldbus products for most valve manufacturers, but not Numatics.

Wade Wright Demos the Numatics G3 Fieldbus Part II

Thankfully, Numatics has developed the G3 Fieldbus Electronics platform that addresses these concerns. The following features are built-in to this product for the benefit of the user:

  • The communication node has a graphical display and menu buttons that allow the user to set all node parameters without the need for a computer connection
  • An optional ARM, or Auto Recovery Module, can be added to store all node parameters and write them to replacement nodes in the event of a failure
  • An optional MCM, or Manual Configuration Module, can be used to quickly configure multiple nodes on different machines
  • Connectors on the I/O modules are spaced apart to allow for easy access
  • All of the I/O modules also feature graphical displays that identify problems and provide their location for ease of trouble-shooting

Please take a look at my video as I point out these features and more using one of our demonstration units. Then contact me if you would like to discuss how this product can help you distribute your valves and I/O more effectively.
