Festo Corporation: Compact Pneumatic Valve Terminal
The VTUG offers flexibility in the choice of control options.
Designed for food, beverage, packaging, electronics, semiconductor, and light assembly industries where low cost and assured performance (high flow rate, small footprint, and long cycle life) are essential, the unit's compact, lightweight aluminum manifold and valve housings can be mounted in cabinets, on machines, and on robotic end effectors. The valve terminal is also suitable for compact pilot valve applications when using an available dual 3/2-way function valve to accommodate from 4 to 48 solenoids. It can be controlled through a multi-pin connector, one cable IO-link interface to a master controller, or through the company's new CTEU fieldbus module to DeviceNet, EtherCAT, CANopen, Profibus, and several other protocols. Multi-pin and I/O link modules are available as spare parts to easily convert existing valve terminal configurations, ensuring flexible communications.
