By Busknotenmodul CTEU for valve terminals type VTUB and VTUG of Festo are fieldbus-valve islands for the price of Multipollösungen possible. These will extend the Busknotenmodul open the valve terminal cost the world of fieldbus protocols such as CAN, Profibus or DeviceNet.
Existing installation solutions with multipole connection or single wiring can be replaced cost-neutral. Switching from multipole to fieldbus significantly reduces installation and engineering costs. With diagnostic functions, the bus node module reduces downtimes and machine failures, for example by identifying undervoltage and short circuits.
The basis of this communication interface for the valve terminals VTUB and VTUG is the "I-Port" as a universal M12 connection. It can be flexibly equipped with the new bus modules of type CTEU or configured to IO-Link. The high degree of protection IP65 / IP67 allows use even under harsh environmental conditions.
