Festo EPCO Electric Cylinder – Servo for all, almost as simple as a pneumatic cylinder
The EPCO Electric Cylinder combines the simplicity of a pneumatic cylinder with the positioning advantages of an electric drive.
The high costs and complexity of servo drive technology are now a thing of the past.
The electric cylinder includes a motor controller, web configuration also diagnostics as an optimised motion series solution package.
This universal electric cylinder is ideally suited e.g. for feeding parts, inserting, removing, also loading a magazine and retaining, as a stop.
The multi-position drive offers high thrust forces and is fast and compact, also with a pre-installed motor and controller.
The electric cylinder is available as a complete optimised motion series system with pre-assembled cables.
Also matching motor controller CMMO-ST as well as software for fast commissioning using a web server/browser concept.
Two software tools Web Config and WebDiag provide simple configuration and diagnostics in conjunction with the motor controller CMMO with no need for a PLC.
This provides security as the individual components will always fit together and incorrect dimensioning is virtually impossible.
