With valve terminals, control systems, controllers and much more, Festo is always well connected
Whatever communication concept and bus architecture you choose, Festo's valve terminal range and electrical peripherals can be adapted to virtually all networking tasks.
Our valve terminals are open to all fieldbus protocols and also provide comprehensive diagnostic and energy management functions. For example, as a fully flexible automation platform, CPX supports the integration of electrical and pneumatic components, motion control and networking components.
More than 20 fieldbus and Ethernet protocols and more than 20 years of experience make Festo the world's no. 1 for intelligent pneumatics.
Sercos and Powerlink
Motion control, real-time, remote I/O with pneumatics and more – on one bus
Profinet, Profibus, Profisafe
Very common open Ethernet protocol.
CANopen, EtherCAT, Modbus/TCP
High-speed and classic design:
EtherCAT with a focus on realtime capability, enabling universal communication with CANopen and the simple structured data model Modbus-TCP.
Powerful point-to-point communication
New connection system at field level for sensors and actuators
The first open bus system complete with standard Ethernet and TCP/IP technology.
Fieldbus for integrated automation, especially in Asia
CC-Link stands for “Control and Communications Link” and is an open, industrial network of global significance and especially important in Asia.
At the actuator/sensor level, AS-interface functions as a "feeder" and is the ideal supplement to fieldbus/Ethernet systems. The data and energy are transferred using only one cable.
Real-time Ethernet for industrial automation.
