In the past, compressor condition monitoring was limited to the gathering and analysis of measurement data; today, compressor consumption can be automatically reduced by actively intervening in the compressed air supply of production plants. With Festo’s patented technology, you can save up to 3.2 tons of CO2 per year and hundreds of dollars in operating costs.
In one unit, the MSE6-C2M combines a pressure regulator, an on/off valve, sensors, and fieldbus communication. By monitoring compressed air consumption, this system shuts off compressed air after production is stopped for a certain period of time and maintains a certain stand-by pressure level.
Conditions are monitored via fieldbuses or PROFINET using modules from the MSE6 series. Measured values like pressure and flow rate are then sent to your PLC, your energy management system or even the cloud.
