Turnkey condition monitoring


Turnkey condition monitoring

Detecting irregularities at an early stage and initiating the necessary measures before a system failure is now made possible by the dashboards and IoT gateway CPX-IOT from Festo. The turnkey, preconfigured dashboards from Festo do not need any additional programming or installation of software. The collected data improves operating transparency for production managers and operators.

Further processing and long-term analysis of data takes place in the cloud. Festo thus supports machine builders and end users in several steps – through the visualisation and processing of data. The result is increased productivity through better overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), lower costs due to greater energy efficiency and fewer downtimes thanks to comprehensive diagnostics, condition monitoring and improved maintenance. System operators can compare the process control systems of their machines across several locations and identify potential for saving energy.

The IoT gateway CPX-IOT connects components and modules from the field level, such as the valve terminal CPX/MPA, the energy monitoring module MSE6-E2M or handling systems, to the Festo Cloud through the OPC UA interface. CPX-IOT collects information and data on Festo devices and their statuses through an Ethernet-based interface and a standardised communication protocol, such as OPC UA. It then sends that information to the cloud through the second Ethernet connection using IoT protocols. Suitable IT security mechanisms ensure data security in the process.

With Festo dashboards, Festo is driving digitalisation forward and supporting its customers to enter the digital age. Festo is also using digital communication to support its customers throughout the Digital Customer Journey. This digital journey guides customers reliably and comprehensively through the Festo portfolio, from information procurement and configuration through ordering and delivery to commissioning and maintenance or even the technical training offering of Festo Didactic.
