Hauppauge, NY - Festo's CPX modular electrical terminal uses different configurable modules to connect traditional I/O devices to DeviceNet, Profibus-DP, Interbus, CANOpen, and CC-Link fieldbus protocols. The CPX system is constructed in sandwiched functional layers consisting of an interlinking (base) block, the electronics (intermediate) module, and a connection (top) block.

CPX's interlinking blocks support serial communications between modules and separate electronics and sensor power. An optional power supply is available for powering actuators.

Different connection block configurations are available to facilitate a variety of signal connection types, such as single-ended and four-wire (self-powered) transmitters.

Devices with standard analog interfaces can be monitored and controlled using the 0 to 10 Volt. 0 to 20mA, and 4 to 20mA analog input or output modules.

Digital input modules support up to eight inputs for connecting two- and three-wire sensors, such as proximity or inductive sensors.

All I/O modules can be parameterized, including support for different data formats. Protection is achieved through integrated electronic fuses.
