Camozzi Industry 4.0-ready valve islands now with fieldbus connection

02 September, 2020

Camozzi Automation’s Series D range of smart valve islands has been extended with the introduction of a fieldbus connection option. Series D is now available for connection to all the main fieldbus protocols (PROFIBUS-DP, PROFINET, CANopen ,EtherNET/IP, EtherCAT and IOLink) through a new serial module.


The combination of the Series D valve island and the serial module makes it easy to integrate pneumatic and electric functions in advanced automation systems, as it allows an increase in the number of controllable valves and interconnection of analogue and digital I/O modules in a single network node.

Modular single sub-bases in technopolymer, with an easy valve connection system and reduced dimensions, make this solution ideally suited to industrial applications requiring quick and easy installation in restricted spaces.

The entire Series D range is Industry 4.0-ready due to Camozzi’s CoilVision technology. This technology employs sophisticated diagnostics to monitor and predict the impact of wear on the efficiency of solenoid valve parts, alerting users to potential breakage and in so doing, avoiding disruption and machine downtime.

Integrated electronics

CoilVision technology uses integrated electronics to constantly monitor the operating parameters of the solenoid driving the spool. This data, including power consumption and coil temperature, is automatically analysed and processed by software algorithms to determine the health status of the coils.

Results transmitted from the valve island to a PLC or through WLAN to an IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) gateway and onto the Cloud, can then be used in advance to predict a potential fault in a coil, before it can cause disruption. In addition to the diagnostics being captured on a remote dashboard, the valve body also incorporates LEDs that give an accurate indication of health status to maintenance engineers.
