Valve terminals

Electromagnetic valves are linked to create a valve manifold with a common power supply and controller: the valve terminal.


Pneumatic valves and electrical connections are efficiently integrated on the valve terminal. This Festo invention means the valve unit has fewer tubes and is much easier to assemble.


Since 1989 Festo has continued to develop the valve terminal: control protocols, diagnostics and condition monitoring as well as application-optimised valve terminals make them even more economical and flexible.
