“Industry 4.0” is a new industrial era in which industrial processes are implemented digitally in every respect. Bürkert supports this development with the Efficient Device Integration Platform (EDIP), which enables intelligent networking down to the sensor and actuator level. The I/O modules now make it possible to integrate all sensors and actuators in EDIP networks. In addition, the graphical programming interface f(x) offers virtually unlimited possibilities for the individual implementation of customer requirements.
EDIP combines and standardises the hardware, software and communication of Bürkert products. The modular design of the platform allows the adaptation of devices according to individual customer requirements and also enables short delivery times. The customer also benefits from a standardised product interface that provides a convenient operation and display concept, faster and easier start-up and the uncomplicated transfer and backup of device settings.
