Optimized for control cabinet installation
There is a growing trend towards ever smaller control cabinets, and control systems, remote I/Os and valve terminals from Festo are no exception. The modular control system CPX-E and the universal valve terminal VTUG are now combined into one solution package.
The package offered by Festo, consisting of the modular automation system CPX-E and the universal valve terminal VTUG, is more compact and cost-efficient than other control cabinet solutions.
Can be used universally
The modular control system CPX-E is an automated system for factory and process automation. It consists of individual function modules which enable a flexible, modular design: depending on the module combination, the system can be configured as a purely remote I/O system with bus module or as a control system with control unit. The CPX-E's distinguishing features are its rapid signal processing and its compact assembly.
The universal valve terminal VTUG has been specially designed for installation in control cabinets and to save space. Thanks to the new manifold rail variant, check valves and fixed flow restrictors, the valve terminal is a true all-rounder in control cabinets. The topic of "simple installation" is self-explanatory: the installation of the valve terminal in a control cabinet wall with the new manifold rails means that tubing within the control cabinet is unnecessary. The variant with a front outlet direction has a clearly visible LED indicator and inscription label holder, enabling direct access to the manual override function. The practical hot-swap function allows individual valves to be replaced quickly during operation without the valve terminals having to be depressurised, which could result in production downtime.
