New Digitization Solutions from Festo Advance Rockwell Automation’s IIoT Initiatives

At Automation Fair 2018, Festo introduced new three of its latest enablers for Rockwell Automation intelligent device initiatives that advance Rockwell Automation’s data-driven manufacturing and processing initiatives.

“The future of optimum overall equipment effectiveness and energy efficiency will rely on a collaborative maintenance environment and on intelligent devices that deliver real-time cloud-based analytics,” said Frank Latino, Festo product manager for Ethernet/IP.

The Festo CPX-FB36 is the first Rockwell Automation third-party device that provides FactoryTalk Analytics for Devices (Shelby) with valve terminal health and diagnostic details. When combined with the MSE6-E2M intelligent energy efficiency module, Shelby creates a dashboard providing the pneumatic response of a system with up to a six-month look-back.

Festo also previewed its soon to be released CPX-IoT Gateway. CPX-IoT gives customers preconfigured dashboards for Festo devices, including all CPX valve terminals and the MSE6-E2M intelligent energy efficiency module. Festo dashboards are designed to enhance energy savings and to improve overall equipment effectiveness.

Festo AppWorld now has a SaaS solution for EPLAN. Simply enter a configuration of any Encompass Referenced valve terminal and the service creates an error free EPLAN project in minutes. Ideal for system integrators and solution partners, this service can save a day of work and facilitate a digital-twin development.
