Festo VTEM series 

Pneumatics is an easy-to-control technology and is now becoming even more simple, versatile and flexible – with the brand-new Festo Motion Terminal VTEM.  Motion apps are moving pneumatics into the age of Industry 4.0. These apps control a single piece of hardware and can replace over 50 individual components.

Flexibility and Standardization, Hand in Hand

The Festo Motion Terminal offers you benefits throughout the entire value chain, from the design to the modernization of your machine. For the first time, pneumatic functions can be changed via an app, without the need to change the hardware. From simple directional control valve functions to complex motion tasks, this solution allows you to standardize your applications while offering unparalleled levels of flexibility.


Motion apps plus new valve technology: this combination can be used to replace over 50 individual components, and even entire system solutions, from flow control valves to a wide range of directional control valves, proportional regulators, Soft Stop solutions and even pneumatic positioning tasks.

Motion apps for greater productivity

Do you want to configure a Festo Motion Terminal with your individual Motion Apps? Or do you already have a Motion Terminal and now you need additional Motion Apps?

What we have to offer

This is the first ever valve to be controlled using apps. The bridge circuit in the valve is an innovative valve system. It is based on the basic elements of pneumatic valve functions and allows pneumatics to be digitized for the first time.

The valve technology in detail

The combination of the CPX automation platform and the Festo Motion Terminal offers unbeatable synergies: from the CODESYS controller with OPC UA to affordable system expansions using CPX-CTEL, optimum function integration simply doesn't get any easier than this.

With the Ethernet interface and the intuitive WebConfig user interface, you can efficiently parameterise every valve on the Festo Motion Terminal via your PC and a web server – no additional configuration software required. What's more, this can also be done directly via the machine's control system.

On the Festo Motion Terminal, you can select up to 16 fast analogue or digital inputs for control applications such as Soft Stop. The sensors on the Festo Motion Terminal are directly integrated into the actuator, thus facilitating fast control for these system solutions..

To support long-term sustainability, the Festo Motion Terminal uses an integrated approach to energy-efficient operation. As a machine builder, this enables you to make your systems even more efficient.
