The Emerson AVENTICS Series AF2 flow sensor monitors airconsumption in pneumatic systems, enabling actionable insight around air consumption and leakage. The leakage rate can be monitored by looking at the used air volume, so leaks can be diagnosed early and addressed before they become a major issue. By giving customers actionable insight on machine data such as flow, pressure and temperature, the AF2 helps to optimize energy consumption, prevent machine downtime and reduce costs. The AF2 is a highly flexible flow sensor that can be directly interpreted by many controllers, and offers multiple communications options, including an IO-Link connection, Ethernet connectivity, OPC-UA server, MQTT communication and on-board webserver. The sensor can be fitted on new installations and its seamless IoT integration makes it perfect for retrofitting existing machines.
The RXi2-LP industrial PC (IPC) edge computer delivers compact, rugged, low power and cost-effective performance computing capabilities to run HMI, historian and analytics applications right at the machine. This enables improved real-time control of operations and better integration into plant-wide systems. Combining strong computing and graphical capability with a low-profile small form factor, the RXi2-LP IPC is ideal for a wide range of industrial applications.
