Cost saving controls for the water industry

Festo is turning its eye for innovation to control solutions for the water industry. The company has launched a series of new products, including modular controllers, real-time communications modules, sensors and actuators that enable system designers to use a task-optimised blend of electrical and pneumatic technology for process control, to help minimise cost and maintenance overheads.

Festo's CPX series multifunctional electrical terminals provide system designers with a very flexible, modular approach to process control, monitoring and diagnostics. The terminals can form part of centralised, decentralised and hybrid control schemes, and their module content can be freely changed at will, enabling systems to be reconfigured or expanded without altering the wiring. A wide range of compatible modules includes integrated PLCs for distributed control, intelligent analogue I/O units for temperature sensing and signal detection, PNP and NPN digital input units, M12 and M8 connection blocks, and connectivity to virtually all leading bus systems.

At the working end, Festo has also launched a powerful new quarter-turn pneumatic actuator, developed at the specific request of customers in the water industry. The new DFPB actuator is a rack and pinion drive which ensures a constant torque characteristic across its entire 90 degree rotation angle. Available in single-acting and double-acting versions, DFPB series actuators offer a unique level of versatility - the same units can be used for clockwise or anti-clockwise operation.
