Simplify and accelerate automation projects using Festo and third party controllers with the PC-based Festo Automation Suite.

Set parameters and configure all parts of an installation in five easy steps. The suite displays status, provides process data and pending diagnostic messages.

The interface is customizable. Import only those components and other plug-ins and sub-programs relevant to that installation or application.

The software contains the basic workings of all Festo drive-related electric and pneumatic components. Download device information, manuals and application descriptions without opening a web browser each time.

For advanced optimization, use the CMMT-AS plug-in to access all device parameters. It integrates into the CPX-E controller program in just two clicks. After the drive has been connected to the controller on the screen, everything else is performed automatically.

Festo Canada is a supplier of automation technology based in Mississauga, Ont.
