Asset management with AUMA

Posted: Thursday 5th August 2010

Asset management functionality has been addressed by AUMA with specific functions provided for the new range of Generation .2 actuators and controls.

With the new Generation .2 multi-turn actuator range SA 07.2 – 16.2, the company has provided a solution that can monitor actuator-specific service conditions and limits. Additionally, the indication of events according to NAMUR recommendation NE 107 categories is provided to help prevent actuator failures and downtime.

AUMA has recognised that plants consist of numerous components supplied by different manufacturers: device feedback must therefore satisfy defined schemes. The approach taken by AUMA has been classification of status signals into four NE 107 classifications, namely ‘out of specification’, ‘maintenance required’, ‘function check’ and ‘failure’.

Future product developments for the Generation .2 range will include a maintenance key for continuous supply of information on actuator status: the data obtained from lifetime tests will be fed into formulae stored within the actuator firmware.

In line with AUMA’s previous products, the new controls are available with different fieldbus interfaces, including the Profibus DP interface with V2 services.
