Customised valve terminals Custom-made

Ready-to-install, 100 % tested and adapted exactly to your application: with customised valve terminals from Festo, you too can benefit from a whole range of advantages such as time savings, increased process reliability with reduced process costs and a focus on your core business.

Modular remote I/O system CPX-AP-A Stand-alone system or with valve terminal

The lightweight CPX-AP-A remote I/O system is integrated directly into Ethernet-based networks that are available worldwide. A variety of additional input and output modules as well as IO-Link master modules
are also available. Pneumatic valve terminals and proportional technology as well as controlled pneumatics that are adapted directly or integrated via AP
communication, can be used to create a scalable system topology. Electric drive technology for linear and rotary movements can be connected via IO-Link®.

The adaptable valve terminal VTUX The VTUX sets new standards in terms of materials, modularity and communication..

The successor to the established CPV, MPA-L/S and VTUG ranges impresses with its high flow rate. And with the communication system AP-I and AP-A, it is the perfect platform for digitised production!

White paper: Automating on/off process valves A comparison of actuation methods for pneumatic actuators

On/off process valves can be automated in different ways using pneumatics. This white paper looks at automation using an individual valve, a valve terminal and a digital valve terminal, and compares the three actuation methods in terms of:

• Required hardware/components and the installation

effort involved

• Investment costs

• Potential for compressed air savings and increased

energy efficiency

• Diagnostic and maintenance options

• Potential for function integration

• Possible applications in safety-related circuits

• Possible applications in potentially explosive areas

ET 200 SP Diagnostic Interrupts When Using Valve Terminals

When valve terminals are used, short-circuit and short-circuit detection of the safe output modules of the Siemens ET 200 SP may result in diagnostic interrupts. These diagnostic interrupts can lead to the fact that an operation is not possible. This technical report explains the background and suggests possible solutions.
