Festo has, with their CPX-L, brought an IP20 remote I/O module for electrical cabinet installation to the market. This expands their CPX terminal range – Festo's modular peripheral system for valve terminals. The new product group includes a version with 16 digital inputs and a further one with 8 digital inputs and 8 digital outputs. To achieve a high number of channels of digital inputs and outputs in the smallest possible PCB area, Festo chose to work in partnership with Weidmüller.
As an experienced solution provider in the area of device connections, Weidmüller could perfectly meet Festo's requirements. These were for quick installation thanks to the PUSH IN connection system, cost reductions and competitive prices for the end customer thanks to the miniaturisation, space-saving installation in the electrical cabinet thanks to the functional integration in the best shape.
