EDS Water Management for Festo Didactic


Water cycles in the model

The EDS Water Management System offers an innovative and practice-orientated learning platform for understanding and controlling the complex interrelationships and processes in water cycles. At the centre of this system is the simulation and analysis of water cycles, which are of central importance in many industrial and municipal applications. By simulating real-life scenarios in a practical way, the EDS Water Management System enables students to familiarise themselves intensively with the many different aspects of water management, such as water treatment, distribution and recycling. This includes the technical as well as the ecological and economic dimensions of water utilisation and reuse. By focussing on water cycles, the system promotes a deep understanding of sustainable water resource management and the efficient use of this vital resource.  


Learning content
EDS Water Management is a modular training system that presents the core processes of a water and wastewater treatment plant in the form of a water cycle from the source to the treatment plant and back.
Thanks to its industry-orientated design, EDS Water Management makes it possible to convey the principles behind the collection and extraction, transport and treatment of (waste) water. It offers a compact introduction to measurement, control and regulation technology.
Practical tasks and experiments are used to analyse the individual process steps in more detail and show how changes in one area can affect the overall system. As the components of the learning system largely correspond to their real-life counterparts, carrying out the tasks is an exciting and authentic experience for the learner. Detailed documents with theoretical content also promote learning success.
A special focus is placed on understanding the system. To this end, it is possible to simulate different water consumption levels or a rain event in order to demonstrate the effects in the sewer system or an accident in the rainwater retention basin.
The system is designed to automatically add a dirt fraction. The dirt fraction must correspond to the behaviour of sludge particles and be able to be fed back into the process after appropriate drying.

The system is divided into four stations, each of which can function on its own. The individual stations are designed as portable table models.

Dimensions (whole system except for supply tank):

  • Width: 2760 mm
  • Depth: 400 mm
  • Height: 1150 mm (from tabletop)

Requirements for operation:

  • Compressed air: 4-6 bar (~50 l/min)
  • Water (~10 – 15 l)
  • DC 24 V
  • PC (at least Win XP, USB 2.0)
