Festo: Universal interface module

The CTEU-EP universal interface module from Festo makes EtherNet/IP connectivity low cost and plug and play for an extensive range of economical valve terminals. The CTEU-EP is ODVA conformant and a Rockwell Encompass referenced product.

For maximum flexibility, OEMs can configure up to 96 valves on multiple valve terminals with a single EtherNet/IP node. Basic diagnostics reduce downtime through faster identification of such fault conditions as under voltage and short circuit. The CTEU-EP offers plug and play connectivity and automatic identification of the valve terminal type and configuration. These attributes simplify and speed up installation. CTEU-EP lowers inventory requirements – a single part number covers multiple configurations – and, with an adapter, a single CTEU-EP can interface two valve terminals for even more efficiency and savings.

The CTEU-EP connects to all Festo I-Port enabled valve terminals, including VTUG, VTUB, MPA-L, VTOC, and CPV. 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 I-Port enabled 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.
