The Festo CECC Controller with IO-Link Master is a New Automation Solution for the Water Treatment Industry

This single mini controller works with both electric and pneumatic actuators

Happauge, NY December 04, 2012


The Festo CECC is the first mini controller with IO-Link master and CoDeSys V3 for the water treatment industry. The CECC controller is designed to reduce installation times, simplify programming, and enable fast and cost-effective control of sensors and valve actuators - either electric or pneumatic.

The CECC is a control solution for small to mid-sized treatment systems. Despite its modest dimensions, the CECC's variety of interfaces allows it to handle the various electric and pneumatic automation tasks found in a treatment facility. CECC can be easily and reliably integrated into higher-level systems.

Fast diagnostics

A major advantage of the CECC is its IO-Link master with four channels. While the traditional sensor/actuator interface only transmits 0 or 1, the new Festo mini controller with IO-Link master features an almost unlimited data interface. This enables treatment diagnostics down to the I/O connection point for easier troubleshooting.

"Festo took its industrial automation and water industry expertise and developed pneumatic and electric actuation components and control systems optimized for small to medium sized water treatment facilities," said Craig Correia, water industry segment manager, Festo. "This reduces engineering time for retrofits and new installations. It ensures lower labor costs during operation. Our solution lowers risk."
