Festo highlights standardised hardware at Automation UK

Standardised hardware and the ability to work with the industry leading control architectures makes Festo stepper and servo drives, remote I/O and valve terminals a natural choice for machine manufacturers and end-users.

Being able to keep 90% of the field level hardware the same and either simply select the preferred bus system through software, dip switches or a header plate keeps documentation common, maintenance and commissioning familiar and reduces the variety of ordered or stocked parts to a minimum.

On stand A24 at Automation UK, Festo will be showing how easy it is to swap from one PLC manufacturer to another when using the Festo CMMT multi-protocol servo and stepper drives, and the versatile new CPX-API/APA distributed I/O and bus driven valve terminal ranges.

Festo’s applications engineers will be on-hand at the show and in its Customer Applications centre to support your implementations and to help you get up and running fast.
