Decentralized I/O system for valve terminals
Decentralized input/output (I/O) system improves the performance of mixed valve terminals and I/O systems.
The CPX-AP-I decentralized input/output (I/O) system improves the performance of mixed valve terminals and I/O systems. CPX-AP-I decentralized I/O enables valve terminals to be moved closer to pneumatic cylinders, which reduces pressurization time and increases overall performance in large scale material handling, packaging, and processing systems. CPX-AP-I can have a mix of 80 I/O modules with a theoretical upper limit of 500. It is easy to imagine how engineers are valuing new state-of-the-art productivity tools for configuring decentralized I/O. With the first tool to be released, engineers use the free downloadable Festo Automation Suite to configure CPX-AP-I systems. Automation Suite enables point-and-click topology setup along with pull-down parametrization functionality for each module.
