Smart Pneumatics – the next big thing?

Advance Market Analytics has published a new research publication on “Global Smart Pneumatics Market Insights, to 2026”.

Key players profiled in the study include: Emerson Electric (United States), Festo (Germany), Parker Hannifin (United States), Bimba Manufacturing (United States), Rotork plc (United Kingdom), Metso Corp. (Finland), Thomson Industries (United States)

The Smart Pneumatics Monitor (SPM) IoT gateway analyses existing sensor signals and uses the result to generate status information. To monitor the wear of a shock absorber. The SPM makes it easy for customers who are already using AV valves and the AES Fieldbus system to take a further step towards implementing IoT. Programming of the SPM can even be modified while the application is running, without any impact on communication to the controller. The use of smart pneumatics reduces the operating cost as well as minimizes the risk of unplanned machine downtime.
