Festo introduces CTEU-EP universal interface module

July 27, 2016 – Festo's CTEU-EP universal interface module from Festo is designed to make EtherNet/IP connectivity low cost and plug and play for a range of Festo valve terminals. The CTEU-EP is ODVA conformant and a Rockwell Encompass referenced product.

For 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 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. I-Port relies on standard single pin M12 male and female connectors, which eliminate the installation complexity and cost associated with multipin connectors.

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, CTEU modules can be connected via CANopen to Festo CPX-CEC front end control.
