All set for automation with IO-Link
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.

Fully automated assembly system with IO-Link®

Maximum productivity: Terminal CPX.
Maximum productivity: Terminal CPX. Automation platform

CPX is ideal as automation platform, valve terminal partner or remote I/O - it is electric, open and direct. It is also the perfect platform for electrical peripherals. With CPX, you can integrate pneumatic and electrical control chains easily, quickly, flexibly and seamlessly into all automation concepts and company-specific standards.

Electric automation
Electric automation Electric automation without compromise

Put your trust in a partner who has been setting technological standards for decades. Whether in pneumatic or electric automation. And don't expect anything less than a complete package, from mechanical systems to integrated motion control solutions and subsystems.

Copper-free pneumatic and electrical components
Copper-free pneumatic and electrical components Secondary battery manufacturing industry

Many of Festo’s products are inherently free of copper. For example guides are made essentially of polymer. In order to be able to offer customers who manufacture lithium-ion batteries as many components as possible from our product range, we have optimised products specifically for use in this field – and we have replaced parts that contain copper with copper-free elements.

Decentralised control concepts
Decentralised control concepts

Installation and control concepts are influencing each other more than ever before, especially as we move towards Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT). It is only through effective interaction between these architectures that modular, flexible and adaptable production concepts with decentralised intelligence, pre-processing, autonomous machines or subsystems, cyber-physical systems – in other words, smart factories – will be successful.

IO Link, and the Automation Platform Network - when a combination of networks becomes attractive

It is critical that suppliers of remote I/O systems can connect to the most important networks used in industry today. PROFINET, EthernetIP, EtherCAT® and Modbus are all common networks used in Industrial Automation but how does a manufacturer of machines standardise, when their various customers specify different networks in their factories?

Nigel Dawson, head of Business Development Electric Automation at

Festo explains.

Proportional pressure regulator VPPM IO-Link
Proportional pressure regulator VPPM IO-Link Decentralised safety!

VPPM is the first proportional valve with IO-Link and I-Port connection technology. Its outstanding features include easy parameterisation

and stable data transmission. The high-speed COM3 data rate of 230 kB/s and cycle times of 0.4 ms mean that even complex data packets can be transmitted quickly and reliably.

Modular control system CPX-E
Modular control system CPX-E Powerful!

Designed as an EtherCAT® master controller and motion controller
with protection to IP20, the powerful automation system CPX-E for
factory and process automation with NE21-specific certifications is
becoming the central control system for handling technology. Several
bus modules are available for the configuration as a compact and
low-cost remote I/O.

Pressure sensor and pressure transmitter SPAU
Pressure sensor and pressure transmitter SPAU Maximum flexibility!

The sensor SPAU for pressure measurement, pressure monitoring and pressure sensing keeps pressure levels permanently under control, ensuring more productivity and process reliability. As well as quicker system commissioning.

Flow sensor SFAW
Flow sensor SFAW Monitor liquid media

Ideal for monitoring cooling circuits, for example in welding guns in the automotive industry or in front-end applications in the semiconductor and electronics industries. The new fl ow sensor SFAW measures the fl ow rate, consumption and temperature of liquid media within the ranges of 1.8 … 32 l/min and 5 … 100 l/min.

Position transmitter for T-slots SDAT-MHS
Position transmitter for T-slots SDAT-MHS Programmable

Whether it is for monitoring screwing in, riveting, ultrasonic welding, pressing or adhesive bonding processes, piston positions always need to be detected in order to ensure high repetition accuracy.

Now there is an inexpensive alternative to costly positional transducers or mechanical potentiometers: the programmable SDAT-MHS for analogue feedback signals.

Simplified_Motion_Series Simplified functionality for simple movements.

The simplicity of pneumatics is now combined for the first time with the advantages of electric automation thanks to the Simplified Motion Series. These integrated drives are the perfect solution for all users who are looking for an electric alternative for very simple movement and positioning tasks, but don't want the commissioning process for traditional electric drive systems that can often be quite complex. Operation is simply based on the "plug and work" principle, without the need for any software. Digital I/O (DIO) and IO-Link are always automatically included – a product with two types of control as standard.

Optimised Motion Series
Optimised Motion Series Electric cylinder EPCO and motor controller CMMO-ST

Optimised Motion Series – the system: low-cost with optimised performance.

A package that makes positioning easier than ever before – and significantly less expensive than conventional electric positioning systems. Electric cylinder EPCO with stepper motor EMMS-ST – simple like a pneumatic cylinder but with the advantages of electric drives and motor controller CMMO-ST in the ServoLite.

Fieldbus node CTEU Varan
Fieldbus node CTEU Varan Simply universal!

The fieldbus node CTEU is versatile and easy to use, and integrates
valve technology from Festo into the fieldbus world. With VARAN*,
the successful CTEU concept now has a real-time, Ethernet-based
bus for very short cycle times and minimum synchronicity jitter.
