Emerson to showcase Floor to Cloud factory automation solutions at Hannover Messe 2024

09 April 2024

Emerson will present the future of automation through its Floor to Cloud approach and innovative automation solutions at Hannover Messe in Hannover, Germany, on April 22 to April 26, 2024. Emerson will demonstrate how real-time visibility and control can drive sustainability, enhance overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) and empower teams using data-informed decision-making.

This is the first year Emerson’s booth will be housed in hall 11 at booth C20. Hall 11 is the Automation, Motion & Drives area, bringing together Emerson solutions all in one place. Attendees are invited to experience the impact of Floor to Cloud technology through immersive demonstrations. A unique PACSystems display will monitor the energy use of the Emerson and nearby booths to highlight how industrial edge control systems, software and analytics can maximize equipment and resources to continuously optimize operations. Attendees will learn how to create a “machine signature” and how this process extends equipment lifecycle. Visitors can also create a preliminary project plan using Emerson Floor to Cloud solutions to visualize anticipated decarbonization outcomes, cost-savings and timelines. Experts from the Test and Measurement Business will also be on-hand at the booth.

Emerson experts will be on-site with solutions from Afag ASCO, AVENTICS, Branson, CoreTigo, Movicon, National Instruments, PACEdge and PACSystems brands. In addition to product demos, the booth will have an innovation station where interesting topics will be presented and explained during the show. The interactive hub will feature scheduled showings that visitors can experience for themselves.

Presentation and event highlights:
Emerson will also host a VIP press event at the booth. During the invite-only event, attendees will hear from Emerson thought leaders and get an exclusive look at Emerson innovations in a relaxed atmosphere. Further details on the event will be announced closer to the show opening.

Product highlights:

AVENTICS Series Advanced Electronic System (AES) with Integrated OPC UA
The award-winning AVENTICS Series Advanced Valve (AV) system with Advanced Electronic System (AES) is the first pneumatic valve system with an integrated Open Platform Communications Unified Architecture (OPC UA). The AES helps interoperability challenges and accesses data more easily, while the digital twin integration improves productivity efficiency and reduces costs. In 2022, the AVENTICS Series AV system with Advanced AES won an Endeavor IDEA! Award, earned silver in the LEAP Awards and was named a finalist for the NED Innovation Awards.

AVENTICS Series AF2 Flow Sensor
AVENTICS Series AF2 Flow Sensors have helped plants around the world successfully reduce compressed air consumption and improve energy efficiency. By monitoring air consumption in pneumatic systems, AF2 sensors enable rapid intervention if leaks occur, helping optimize energy consumption, reach net-zero targets, prevent machine downtime and reduce costs. Emerson now offers a high flow model of this advanced sensor that propels compressed air monitoring beyond individual machines to benefit larger air lines and systems. This expanded capability allows users to easily optimize energy consumption across an entire packaging facility and improve overall plant sustainability.

Multimedia monitoring solution
The multimedia monitoring solutions, including CoreTigo wireless communication, analyze water, compressed air, gases, electricity, steam (WAGES) and other utilities. The Edge Analytics Dashboard measures efficiency, optimizes productivity and avoids or reduces downtime. Emerson experts will demonstrate the multimedia monitoring cabinet solution and the insights it offers, which will support meeting sustainability goals.

Movicon.NExT HMI/SCADA is a highly modular, highly scalable platform that goes beyond SCADA to solve automation problems for both CPGs and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), from the single machine level to a complete plantwide industrial internet of things project implementation. Among Movicon.NExT modules, Movicon Pro.Lean provides performance data and analytics for evaluations of OEE and Movicon Pro.Energy measures and tracks consumption, while the advanced Movicon NExT.AR solves operational problems through visualization tools that allow personnel to evaluate previously unreachable equipment. For maximum flexibility, Emerson also provides Movicon WebHMI, an HTML5-based visualization tool that can be used as a stand-alone HMI product running on Windows or Linux operator panels, or as a Web Client for Movicon.NExT SCADA applications, as well as Connext, an industrial protocol gateway.

PACSystems panel
Industrial edge software and solutions help analyze and solve problems where they occur — at the machine edge. PACSystems Edge Solutions is the most advanced portfolio of edge computing and control systems and includes edge hardware and software that help significantly simplify problem-solving at the machine level and allow easy, cost-effective analytics and communication at the edge. Included in the panel is the PACSystems RSTi-EP CPE200 compact controller family, which delivers large PLC capability in a compact, rugged design. It provides security-by-design, open programming and open communications built in, significantly reducing cost and complexity.
