For better performances of your production lines, it is possible to leverage energy efficiency.
Festo, a leading company in the automation sector, told us its aim of energy efficiency both in the company and with its customers, thanks to a strong investment in promoting sustainable productivity.
What does it mean? Sustainable productivity means careful management of resources and an increase in their long-term value in terms of energy efficiency. This system will allow you to improve the productivity of your plants thanks to a reduction in waste, losses and costs, as the last consequence of the entire chain of energy sustainability.
All system data is collected and displayed via the Cloud with dedicated control panels, which can be easily integrated into the IoT environment of your business.
Smart design (apply the right technology according to the function of the product, profile, etc)
Dedicated products and solutions (energy efficiency modules, remote IO and handling systems, vacuum generators, pneumatic actuators, flow sensors)
Search for leaks (potential savings)
Festo offers free software for selecting and dimensioning components from the choice of the energy carrier to the right component size. For the definition of smart design and therefore of correct sizing, Festo offers the Engineering Tool. This software manages not only general but also specific parts in relation to individual products.
The energy efficiency modules MSE6 from Festo constantly monitor the compressed air consumption and interrupt the compressed air supply when production is stopped for a certain period. In some cases, they prevent the system pressure from falling below a certain stand-by pressure level. The MSE6 module communicates with other local devices thanks to two integrated digital inputs/outputs.
In other cases, the module can be integrated directly into PROFIBUS, PROFINET, EtherCAT®, EtherNet/IP via fieldbus or can be connected to a Festo CPX terminal.
Below we indicate the 4 steps of this process.
