Valve island type 8647 for Siemens SIMATIC ET 200SP HA

In addition to the Siemens SIMATIC ET 200SP, the newly developed valve island Type 8647 AirLINE SP can be seamlessly integrated into the Siemens SIMATIC ET 200SP HA and the Process Control System 7 (PCS 7).

The space-saving valve island can be installed inside a control cabinet together with various Siemens modules, thus enabling the control of up to 64 valve functions.

For a number of years now, Siemens and Bürkert have been successfully pooling their expertise in the fields of automation and fluid technology. This cooperation has previously resulted in the valve island Types 8650 and 8644. By combining individual strengths, it has been possible to develop Type 8647 AirLINE SP, an innovative pneumatic automation system, which is not only state-of-the-art but also offers various new features.

Thanks to its compatibility with Siemens peripheral systems, the valve island can be set up very easily. It performs identically to Siemens modules while boasting numerous functions, explains Tobias Zipf, Product Manager Pneumatics: “Integrated check valves in the exhaust air ducts help to prevent unwanted valve switching caused by uncontrolled pressure peaks. In addition, the valve island has a hot-swap function, allowing valves to be changed during operation. Central monitoring of the number of switching cycles of the valves enables wear-optimized maintenance (predictive maintenance) and improves the process reliability of the plant.”
