ASCO Numatics has introduced the Numatics 501 Series panel mount adapter plate. The new product brings the Numatics 501 Series directional valve’s high flow characteristics and compact size to pneumatic panel applications.
The mounting plate adapter allows original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and end users to directly connect the 501 Series valve manifold to a panel in the wall or floor of a cabinet. All panel strength, integrity and certifications are maintained. The panel mount adapter plate is ideal for applications in the process industries where directional control valves are installed in a cabinet due to environmental or packaging constraints. These applications include food and beverage, pharmaceutical and packaging machinery, plus general machine automation.

Metso has strengthened its product portfolio and developed new control applications to improve usability in the Metso DNA automation system. The novelties include tools for alarm shelving and a function test, both continuing Metso's pioneering work in usability applications for process control. Also, an IEC 61850 interface is now available.
To further improve usability in the Metso DNA system, Metso has developed an Alarm Shelving application. With it, the operator is able to temporarily prevent an alarm from being displayed when it is being more of a nuisance. A shelved alarm will be removed from the alarm list and will not show until it is un-shelved.
