Festo MSE6-E2M energy efficiency module
The energy efficiency module MSE6-E2M from Festo makes energy saving in compressed air systems simple. This intelligent service unit measures, controls and monitors the consumption of compressed air in production and makes important data visible. It ensures compressed air is supplied according to needs and helps to detect and rectify leakages. As compressed air is only supplied when it is really needed, the energy efficiency module can save up to 20% of the current energy demand in machines.
During downtime, the compressed air supply to the machine is shut off, thus preventing any air escaping through leakages on the machine. The module also has an option whereby the compressed air supply can be switched on and off manually. In the case of particularly complex production processes, automatic standby detection can be deactivated so that plant operators can specify themselves via a PLC whether a machine is in production operation or not.
A further advantage of the energy efficiency module is active condition monitoring. This feature gives plant operators access to energy- and process-related data at all times. The module can be integrated fully into a machine control system via Profibus and exchanges important data such as energy consumption and machine availability.
This module is suitable for new, energy-efficient machines and, thanks to the simple connection of the sensors to a PLC, it can also be used as an easy retrofit on older installations which now need to operate more energy efficiently.
