Festo’s new CANopen integrated interface for its CPV compact performance valve terminals allows installation of pneumatic valves onto a CANopen system without the need for a node. Valve terminals are available in 10, 14 and 18mm valve widths. Each valve terminal has an additional 24VDC power supply connection, IP65 rating and up to eight positions with integrated LEDs.
Conforming to CAN specifications, the interface features address and baud rate adjustments inside the CPV. Maximum line and drop lengths are baud rate dependent. CANopen accessories, such as tee adaptors and plugs, help speed connection to the CANopen integrated CPV terminals.
