Floor to Cloud factory automation solutions at Hannover 2024

Emerson will demonstrate how real-time visibility and control can drive sustainability, enhance overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) and empower teams using data-informed decision-making at Hannover Messe 2024.

This is the first year Emerson’s booth will be housed in hall 11 at booth C20. Hall 11 is the Automation, Motion & Drives area, bringing together Emerson solutions all in one place. Attendees are invited to experience the impact of Floor to Cloud™ technology through immersive demonstrations. A unique PACSystems™ display will monitor the energy use of the Emerson and nearby booths to highlight how industrial edge control systems, software and analytics can maximise equipment and resources to continuously optimize operations. Attendees will learn how to create a »machine signature» and how this process extends equipment lifecycle. Visitors can also create a preliminary project plan using Emerson Floor to Cloud™ solutions to visualize anticipated decarbonization outcomes, cost-savings and timelines. Experts from the Test and Measurement Business will also be on-hand at the booth.

Emerson experts will be on-site with solutions from Afag™ ASCO™, AVENTICS™, Branson™, CoreTigo, Movicon™, National Instruments, PACEdge and PACSystems™ brands. In addition to product demos, the booth will have an innovation station where interesting topics will be presented and explained during the show. The interactive hub will feature scheduled showings that visitors can experience for themselves.

Presentation and product highlights:

Emerson will also host a VIP press event at the booth. During the invite-only event, attendees will hear from Emerson thought leaders and get an exclusive look at Emerson innovations in a relaxed atmosphere. Further details on the event will be announced closer to the show opening.

AVENTICS Series Advanced Electronic System (AES) With Integrated OPC UA

AVENTICS Series AF2 Flow Sensor

AVENTICS Series AF2 Flow Sensors have helped plants around the world successfully reduce compressed air consumption and improve energy efficiency. By monitoring air consumption in pneumatic systems, AF2 sensors enable rapid intervention if leaks occur, helping optimize energy consumption, reach net-zero targets, prevent machine downtime and reduce costs. Emerson now offers a high flow model of this advanced sensor that propels compressed air monitoring beyond individual machines to benefit larger air lines and systems. This expanded capability allows users to easily optimize energy consumption across an entire packaging facility and improve overall plant sustainability.

Multimedia Monitoring Solution

The multimedia monitoring solutions, including CoreTigo wireless communication, analyze water, compressed air, gases, electricity, steam (WAGES) and other utilities. The Edge Analytics Dashboard measures efficiency, optimises productivity and avoids or reduces downtime. Emerson experts will demonstrate the multimedia monitoring cabinet solution and the insights it offers, which will support meeting sustainability goals.


Movicon.NExT™ HMI/SCADA is a highly modular, highly scalable platform that goes beyond SCADA to solve automation problems for both CPGs and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), from the single machine level to a complete plantwide IIoT project implementation. Among Movicon.NExT modules, Movicon Pro.Lean™ provides performance data and analytics for evaluations of OEE and Movicon Pro.Energy™ measures and tracks consumption, while the advanced Movicon NExT.AR solves operational problems through visualization tools that allow personnel to evaluate previously unreachable equipment. For maximum flexibility, Emerson also provides Movicon WebHMI, an HTML5-based visualization tool that can be used as a stand-alone HMI product running on Windows or Linux operator panels, or as a Web Client for Movicon.NExT SCADA applications, as well as Connext™, an industrial protocol gateway.

PACSystems Panel

AVENTICS AV Valve Systems

AVENTICS Advanced Valve Systems form a reliable basis for both compact handling systems and complex automation solutions. Especially in the area of machine safety, the AV family offers intelligent solutions that significantly reduce effort when creating a safe design. The valves of the AV family — AV03 and AV05 — have set standards with their diagonal spool in both sizes. They are characterized by an excellent volume flow ratio and a record-breaking energy balance. With the serial Advanced Electronic System (AES) interface, the AV valve system communicates effortlessly with modern controllers via all common fieldbus systems. The modular electronics form the basis for high networking, flawless data transmission and integration into Internet-of-Things concepts.

Edge Devices and Software

Emerson edge devices combine the best deterministic controllers on the market with secure, nondeterministic controllers for analytics and machine learning algorithms to proactively optimize business outcomes. These rugged devices are designed for remote industrial areas and equipped with our vendor-agnostic PACEdge software to safely run nondeterministic applications. This reduces latency and meets all application performance requirements.

AVENTICS G3 Electronic Fieldbus Platform

In today’s highly automated machines, the AVENTICS valve system of the Series G3 electronic fieldbus platform replaces conventional, hard-wired solutions. It integrates communication interfaces with pneumatic valve systems that have input/output (I/O) capabilities. This next-generation electronic platform provides easy access to connections. It is easy to assemble, install, commission and maintain. The functionality of the G3 enables programmable logic controllers to turn valves on and off more efficiently and transmit I/O data from sensors, indicator lights, relays, individual valves or other I/O devices on a channel basis over various industrial networks.
