AUMA actuators support Ethernet/IP

Date 03.07.2019

AUMA actuators are now available with an Ethernet/IP interface as AUMA continues to invest in pioneering Industrial Ethernet communication. Ethernet/IP is the third Industrial Ethernet standard that AUMA supports, in addition to Profinet and Modbus TCP/IP.

Ethernet/IP offers superior connectivity and enhanced network flexibility. With bandwidths up to 100 Mbit/s, AUMA actuators with Ethernet/IP provide reliable and rapid exchange of both cyclic process data and acyclic diagnostic data from the actuators.

49 AUMA actuators with Ethernet/IP communications are already proving their performance in the Santan Vista water treatment plant near Phoenix, Arizona. The SA multi-turn and SQ part-turn actuators with AC intelligent controls were supplied as part of an expansion project. Commissioning of the actuators was completed in April 2018. The expansion doubles the plant’s capacity to 48 million gallons (180 000 cubic metres) per day, catering for rising demand in this rapidly growing metropolitan area.

Ethernet/IP communications was specified in the tender for the project. AUMA was the only actuator manufacturer in the bid who met this requirement.

“Integrating the actuators into the Ethernet/IP system proved to be easy and straightforward,” says Lido Flores, Regional Sales Manager at AUMA Actuators, Inc., USA. “Many of our customers already use Ethernet/IP for their sensors and meter devices. We are very happy to now also provide electric actuators that use this future-proof technology.”
