The CTEU-EP universal interface module makes EtherNet/IP connectivity low cost and plug and play for IO-Link devices and valve terminals. The CTEU-EP is ODVA conformant and a Rockwell Encompass referenced product.
For flexibility, OEMs can integrate IO-Link devices such as pressure and flow sensors, RFID readers, and light stacks along with a valve terminal with up to 64 solenoid coils. With a splitter, two-valve terminals can be served.
Features of the CTEU-EP include:
–Simple plug and work commissioning
–Flexible configurations of valve terminals with up to 64 solenoid coils
–Compatible with five different Festo valve families
–Fail safe mode that holds last state in case of network fault
–Diagnostics on board
–Rated to IP65 and IP67
The CTEU-EP connects to a range of Festo 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 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.
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.
