Function Integration Saves Time All Around

Article-Function Integration Saves Time All Around

When electrical and pneumatic subsystems are separated, all the phases of building even relatively simple systems can take a lot of time. This can result in delays and dissatisfied customers. Function integration can solve this, as it offers increased functionality and reliability, reduced interfaces and saves time along the entire value chain. This improves efficiency and productivity throughout the company.  

This white paper presents information on: 

  • Trends towards function integration in machine and system building 
  • Interface conflicts and requirements in day-to-day projects 
  • The benefits of valve terminals in eliminating interface conflicts 
  • Application example of function integration 
  • Potential reduction in the total cost of ownership (TCO) in the application example 
  • Key factors when selecting an integrated automation platform
