In order to meet the latest industry requirements for digitalized Industry 4.0 processes, To simplify the realisation of intelligent networking, Bürkert Fluid Control Systems has simplified the realisation of intelligent networking with the development of EDIP – the Efficient Device Integration Platform. Thanks to EDIP, customized solutions that can function as a stand-alone or autonomous subsystem are now possible, as well as detailed device diagnostic capabilities.

The expanded platform

Two further components were added to the new expanded platform: With the I/O module ME44, various sensors and actuators can be integrated into the EDIP environment. The fieldbus gateway ME43 allows simple integration at process control level with the help of standard fieldbuses and Industrial Ethernet. Intuitive graphical programming allows autonomous subsystems to be realised quickly without the need for intervention in the control system. This is particularly advantageous when extensive documentation is required, for example, in the pharmaceutical field. The user receives a scalable, customised digital complete solution from a single source. 


Programmable gateway


The EDIP integration at process control level happens through Bürkert gateway ME43, which communicates via PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, PROFIBUS DP, Modbus TCP or EtherCAT (Image 2). It also serves as a central control unit for any EDIP device and offers the possibility of graphical programming for automating the subsystem. In each case, the gateway transmits up to 128 input and output variables. Optional upward or downward cable outlets simplify installations in cramped control cabinets. This ensures flexibility during assembly along with exceptional reliability as well as reduced cost and time expenditure during commissioning.


Universal I/O modules


With the I/O module ME44 from Bürkert, various sensors and actuators can be integrated in an EDIP system. The modules process standard signals and are compatible with 2- and 3-wire sensors as well as mechanical limit switches. Some channels can also be configured as frequency inputs, which allow the user to adjust them individually to suit requirements. Expanding the modules is easy as they simply snap together using a 3-slot backplane without the need for tools. Easily removable terminal block connectors for quick, uncomplicated assembly and the use of LED indicators to display short circuits and cable breaks help streamline installation and maintenance work.
