Using Festo Valves? You should check this out!

February 26, 2018

Bihl+Wiedemann has developed the active distributor BWU3577 with integrated AS-i chip especially for controlling Festo valves CPE14 / VUVG-L14. Use it to easily incorporate Festo valves into the AS-i network using pre-assembled M8 cables.


The especially compact form factor is optimized for the cable duct and allows you to create individual cable routing scenarios. Since the voltage is provided from AS-i, no separate cable needs to be routed for power supply. And the physical separation of valve and module makes it simple to replace components.


Other advantages: you can connect valves with a high standard nominal flow rate – and depending on the configuration even a larger amount of them. In addition, the distributor is especially flexible and attractively priced.


Features of the new active distributor for Festo valves 

•  Control of 2 × 5/2 directional valves or 1 × 5/3 directional valve as well as 4 sensors (optimized for Festo valves type CPE14 and VUVG-L14)

•  Especially flat form factor, optimized for cable ducts (B × H × T: 60 × 45 × 35 mm)

•  4 digital inputs

•  2 digital outputs

•  In- & output voltage provided from AS-I

•  Connection of AS-i using profile cable

•  Connection of periphery using 6 × M8 socket (straight, 4-pin)

•  Protection rating IP67
