Breaking down the barriers to industrial networking

Breaking down the barriers to industrial networking Festo is breaking down the barriers to networking, enabling customers to set up pneumatic valve terminals and get connected to Fieldbus networks in just a few simple steps. With just one entry-level valve terminal users can go from multi-pin connection to Ethernet through IO-Link and Fieldbus as required.

This flexibility is typified in the development of Festo's VTUG range of cost-effective pneumatic terminals. The pneumatic functionality includes two 3/2 valves, 5/2 and 5/3 valves as well as pressure zoning, additional supply and sandwich plates and three sizes of valves, with more to come.

The VTUG valve terminal is available with a multi-pin connection, providing communication through sub D connectors as well as flat cable connectors if required. However, the multi-pin connection can easily and quickly be changed for an M12 connector to provide an IO-Link connection and a network-ready valve terminal by removing four screws. This Fieldbus independent connection enables extended diagnostics of sensors and actuators above hard wired connections.

If a higher level Fieldbus or Ethernet network is required, then a CTEU node can be simply put onto the IO-Link port. The valve terminal then allows full communication including diagnostic data and parameterisation of the failure behaviour of the valves.
