Alfa Laval introduced its ThinkTop V50 and V70 hygienic valve control units featuring an IO-Link communication between the valve and Industry 4.0 automation systems.
The point-to-point IO-Link communication protocol in these hygienic valve control units connects sensors and actuators—regardless of fieldbus—to your automation systems enabling real-time data exchange, improving diagnostics and simplifying configurability and control.
M12 connectors and automatic recording of valve stroke duration simplify installation and use. Data and process parameters can be changed via the remote automation system.
LEDs with customizable colors and flashing-light ‘wink’ function eases valve identification on the automation system and the factory floor.
Optimized valve cleaning uses a remote programmable logic controller to switch between standard time-based seat lift cleaning and burst seat cleaning. A pressure shock counter provides nearly instant detection of valve movements
