Axis controller CPX-CMAXThe choice is yours: position and force control, directly controlled or selected from one of 128 configurable positioning sets. The configurable record sequencing function also enables simple functional sequences to be realised in the axis controller CPX-CMAX. The auto-identification function identifies each station with its device data on the controller CPX-CMAX. The control of a brake or clamping unit via the proportional directional control valve VPWP is also part of the performance of the controller CPX-CMAX. Up to eight modules (max. eight axes) can be operated in parallel and independently of each other. It is commissioned using FCT – the Festo configuration software – or via a fieldbus: no programming, just configuration.
End-position controller CPX-CMPXIt offers fast travel between the mechanical end stops of the cylinder, moving gently and without impact into the end position. It is commissioned quickly using an operating panel, fieldbus or handheld terminal. Controlling a brake or clamping unit via the proportional directional control valve VPWP is an integral part of the controller CMPX. Depending on the fieldbus chosen, up to nine end-position controllers can be actuated on the CPX terminal. All system data can be read and written via the fieldbus, including the mid-positions for example. The advantages are: Increased flexibility, OEM-friendly, commissioning also via fieldbus, clear installation and fast commissioning, economic, up to 30% more cycles, significantly reduced vibration in the system, increased working ergonomics thanks to considerably reduced noise level.
End-position controller SPC11It offers fast travel between two fixed stops with electronic end-position cushioning and up to two freely selectable intermediate positions. Actuation is via digital I/Os. Up to 30% more cycles are possible with significantly less vibration in the system. Fast problem-free commissioning is possible, no specialists required. It is also possible as well as easy to convert existing systems. It offers a mass/load change of up to 30% of the total mass moved with optimum operating performance, is more cost-effective than electromechanical drives and emits a lower noise level.
