The CTEU-EP universal interface module from Festo makes EtherNet/IP connectivity low cost and plug and play for IO-Link devices and Festo valve terminals. The CTEU-EP is ODVA conformant and a Rockwell Encompass referenced product.
For maximum flexibility, OEMs can cost effectively integrate IO-Link devices such as pressure and flow sensors, RFID readers, and light stacks along with a valve terminal with up to 64 solenoid coils. With a splitter, two-valve terminals can be served.
Features of the CTEU-EP include:
Economical IO-Link interface
- Simple plug and work commissioning
- Flexible configurations of valve terminals with up to 64 solenoid coils
- Compatible with five different Festo valve families
- Fail safe modes allow systems to hold last state in case of network fault
- Diagnostics on board
o Under voltage
o Short circuits
- Extendable to include inputs using optional CAPC splitter
- Rated to IP65 and IP67
The CTEU-EP connects to a range of Festo valve terminals, including VTUG, VTUB, MPA-L, VTOC, and CPV for greater flexibility. In harsh environment applications, CTEU-EP can interface EtherNet/IP to the MPA-C IP69K rated valve terminal. CTEU-EP is also compatible with other Festo products such as the CTSL input module, SDAT cylinder position transmitter, OVEM vacuum generator, VPPM pressure regulator, CMMO-LK stepper motor controller, and to a number of pressure sensors.
The CTEU family of universal interface modules is compatible with other leading fieldbuses, including DeviceNet, Modbus TCP, EtherCAT, ProfibusDP, Profinet, CANopen, and CC-Link. In addition,…
