Festo Pneumatic Actuator Performs Servo Positioning

Jan. 2, 2015

DDLI servo-pneumatic actuator with integrated position feedback provides fast, controlled positioning and the capability to regulate feed forces on the fly. The DDLI is suitable for positioning a diverter on a conveyor, opening and closing large machine doors, clamping and more. When used with the company's CPX-CMAX servo-pneumatic controller, the DDLI can be operated like an electric servo drive to perform position and force tasks. Use the integrated record set table to predefine position and force tasks in the CMAX controller, or send position and force directly from the PLC to the CMAX controller and modify movements on-the-fly.
