Festo Configuration Tool – parameterising components

The Festo Configuration Tool (FCT) provides a clear overview of all the drives in a system. With our configuration and commissioning software, you can move axis systems step by step or in sequences, write individual records for the positioning set table using the teach-in method and apply trace functions. FCT runs offline in the office as well as online directly on the machine for parameterising positioning options and for diagnostics.

Product-specific plug-ins can be found on the relevant product detail page under ‘Downloads and media’ in the Software section. Enter the part number or order code in the search field or navigate to the right page via the product selection.

Festo Maintenance Tool (FMT) – configuring CPX modules

The easiest way to commission, configure and carry out extended diagnostics of CPX valve terminals is with the CPX-FMT. If you are using an industrial Ethernet fieldbus node such as EtherNet/IP, PROFINET and Modbus®/TCP, the Maintenance Tool communicates directly with the CPX terminal. With conventional fieldbuses, the software can be connected to the CPX terminal via a USB adapter (type NEFC-M12G5-0,3-U1G5).

It enables you to find all Festo devices in the network and then easily and conveniently check and update the firmware.

Matching templates – labelling valve terminals

It’s important to be organised, and, with the help of these digital templates, you can easily create precisely fitting labels for valve terminals. There are separate Word files for the label holders for the CPV, CPX and MPA series.

Drilling templates for CPX, MPA, VTSA and VTSA-F series valve terminals can be found in the expert knowledge for each product.
