Festo VTEM pneumatic controlFesto claims its VTEM motion terminal combines the latest developments in piezo technology and software to offer an Industry 4.0 solution for pneumatic control applications.

The system uses piezo technology, integrated stroke and pressure sensors together with control via motion apps. Changes in pneumatic functions and adaptations to new formats are controlled via the apps by changing parameters, while the integrated sensors for control, diagnostics and self-learning tasks will eliminate the need for additional components, claims the company. At launch, the company says the VTEM motion terminal offers ten different functions via motion apps, with more in development.
