All set for automation with IO-Link Point-to-point!

Standardised IO-Link technology (IEC 61131-9) makes communication with sensors and actuators simple and economical. The result of an evolutionary development, this low-cost connection technology with three or five conductors achieves point-to-point connection without complex wiring and with minimal material requirements.

Automation solutions for fingerboards in the Oil and Gas industry

Very few environments are as demanding as those on an oil rig. Materials are stressed and corrosion is promoted by water, salt and wind, as well as extreme weather fluctuation. The highly innovative Festo Motion Terminal as well as the state of the art valve terminal VTUG combined with our control cabinets offer reliable and steady solutions for automation of fingerboards under these harsh conditions.

CPX terminal with PROFINET bus interface Seamless connectivity!

PROFINET, the world’s leading Ethernet-based protocol for industrial automation, offers you direct access and seamless connectivity from the management level to the field level. The new bus interfaces FB43/44/45 of the automation platform CPX are equipped with the latest hardware and software chip technology and are fully compatible with the predecessor series FB3x.

Maximum productivity: Terminal CPX
PA-Toolkit: Library for CODESYS MTP compliant!

With the PA-Toolkit from Festo, implementing the automation logic of process engineering units and modules is really intuitive. You can also use the library for CODESYS to program applications without the need for more in-depth programming expertise. This is ideal for automating modular systems according to the MTP standard, which requires a separate controller for each system module.

Intelligent automation for filtration basins
The dock “thinks” for itself Decentralised Control in Bulk Material Handling

The world of bulk material handling seems easy at first glance: moving, filling, delivering. The art of dealing with a variety of different materials, however, lies in the details, such as the docking and undocking of containers at weighing stations. In the process, crosscontaminations

and the release of dusts can occur. AZO CleanDock prevents this

problem. Its latest generation can do even more: it “thinks” for itself. Directly attached to the dock, the integrated controller CEC of the modular electrical terminal CPX from Festo ensures additional process security and shortened commissioning times.

Pneumatic automation concepts A comparison of individual valves and valve terminals

Individual valves or valve terminals – which is the most suitable option for actuating pneumatically automated process valves? What are the technological and economic differences between the two? We will use a cost comparison to compare and contrast the two options. And what are the differences in terms of commissioning? Which diagnostic options are available with valve terminals for reducing unscheduled downtime? These are the questions that will be examined in this article.

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

White paper: Plants based on the Lego principle Modular automation with valve terminals

Smaller batches and different types of product in the same plant – these are the market demands to which more and more manufacturers in

the process industries need to adjust. The answer is plants based on the “Lego principle”. Users can add modules or switch them off in line

with requirements. But this is only possible with modular automation.

Automation with function integration The pneumatic and electrical modules of the valve terminal CPX/MPA/VTSA

The double-sided poster shows the complete variety and far-reaching functional integration of the electrical terminal CPX and the two valve terminals MPA and VTSA. The electrical functions and connection options of the CPX modules as well as the valve functions and other pneumatic additional functions of the valve terminals MPA and VTSA are clearly presented by tables and graphics. What they all have in common are the part numbers and type codes in the tables, so that they can be ordered directly without a long search.

Pneumatic and electrical modules of the valve terminal CPX/VTSA-F-CB The perfect platform for your safety concept

The double-sided poster clearly shows the modules and connection options of the electrical terminal CPX and the valves and additional functions of the valve terminal VTSA/VTSA-F-CB on the front. On the back, implementable safety concepts and example circuits as well as application examples are shown in detail and in a comprehensible way, and the integration into the control architecture as well as configuration and circuit examples are described.
