Comprehensive configuration

31 positioning options and diagnostic functions

In the Festo Configuration Tool FCT, all drives within a given system are clearly arranged and can be managed from within a single project.


For further commissioning, the FCT enables movement of axial systems in individual steps or in sequences. You have access to tools to write individual records in the teach-in process into the motion record table as well as trace functions.


Use the free software platform FCT offline at your desk or online at the machine.
