Showcased last month at Interphex in New York City, this company’s MSE6-E2M pneumatic energy-efficiency module (photo) monitors the condition of pneumatics on process equipment, skids or packaging machinery, enabling users to decrease consumption of energy and compressed air. The module provides automatic detection and notification of leaks, as well as condition monitoring for relevant process data. When paired with the new CPX IOT gateway, the E2M module provides realtime analytics with a direct connection to this company’s cloud service. — Festo Corp., Islandia, N.Y.
