The modular control system CPX-E is an automated system for factory and process automation. It consists of individual function modules which enable a flexible, modular design: depending on the module combination, the system can be configured as a purely remote I/O system with bus module or as a control system with control unit. The CPX-E's distinguishing features are its rapid signal processing and its compact assembly.
The universal valve terminal VTUG has been specially designed for installation in control cabinets and to save space. Thanks to the new manifold rail variant, check valves and fixed flow restrictors, the valve terminal is a true all-rounder in control cabinets. The installation of the valve terminal in a control cabinet wall with the new manifold rails means that tubing within the control cabinet is unnecessary. The variant with a front outlet direction has a clearly visible LED indicator and inscription label holder, enabling direct access to the manual override function. The practical hot-swap function allows individual valves to be replaced quickly during operation without the valve terminals having to be depressurised, which could result in production downtime.
