Festo Develops An Innovative Control Platform For The Water Treatment Industry
This new scalable control system for small to medium sized water treatment facilities speeds retrofits and new installations while delivering considerable operational efficiencies
Festo is now offering a modular and scalable control system designed to speed up water treatment control system renovation and new installations. The Festo water treatment control system offers considerable labor savings and operational benefits.
This new control system is based on proven off-the-shelf products, which helps to lower cost. Off-the-shelf solutions also reduce the kinds of maintenance and support problems so common with "one-off" designs. The Festo water treatment control system is designed to lower manual operation in favor of automation. Operators have a graphical overview of the treatment process in real-time. Graphical animation and touch sensitive areas on the operator terminal create an intuitive interface.
For example, touching the graphical image of a valve, filter, or pump brings up detailed information on the device. Key operational data include level, pressure, temperature, and flow. Having this information at their finger-tips helps operators troubleshoot and maintain optimum treatment conditions. The Festo CPX control platform delivers extensive self-diagnostics.
“Festo's taken proven pneumatic and electric automation components and controls and assembled a system that reduces engineering costs and lowers risk,” said Craig Correia, Festo's water industry segment manager.
