Festo VTUG valve terminal Pneumapole connector plate

Pneumapole connector plate VTUG

Ebora Process Automation has made a development in collaboration with Festo for a pneumatic multipole connector plate for control cabinet assembly. It has been specifically developed for the Festo VTUG valve terminal. This addition to the VTUG valve terminal made it into a worthy successor for the CPV valve islands with pneumapole multipole connector plate for control cabinet assembly and even more functionality and improvements.

Festo VTUG with Pneumapole:

  • The biggest advantage related to the currently existing pneumapole connector plate for control cabinet assembly is that it covers the cut-out in the cabinet. Consequently you are able to cut a hole for the valve terminal by hand. Normally the edges will corrode in the long term, even if you make the cut-out with a laser cutter.
  • The second advantage is that you install the valve island by sliding it in from the outside. So you do not need extra space in the cabinet to mount it.
  • The third advantage is that the panel builder does not need to know a lot of pneumatic systems because he only needs to connect the electrical parts.

With this valve terminal you are able to exchange the valves very easily by means of the two screws on the valve.

The multipole connector plate is made of stainless steel 304 with a roughness of <0.8um and has a blue silicone seal to the cabinet in a way that it is as hygienic as possible.

Cabinet cutout for Festo VTUG

Ebora delivers the valve islands completely assembled and tested. Please note: the silencers will be included separately due to their vulnerability during transport.

Below is a link to the VTUG configurator from Festo.

If the VTUG requires valve islands with Pneumapole, do not change the thick printed part of the configuration.

The following valve islands are all configured with double 3/2-way valves with mechanical spring (our standard)

If you click on the type you can adjust the configuration to the valves you want.

The type number + Pneumapole is the type number that Ebora requires for the delivery of the VTUG valve island with Pneumapole.

For example VTUG-10-VRPT-B1T-G18FD-DTFD-M7SFD-16VK+TTSC+Pneumopole

You will then get a valve island with a preparation for a fieldbus, with 16 x double 3/2-way valves and a mounted Pneumapole


The Pneumapole is not a separate component, but is permanently mounted by Ebora on the valve island.

Ebora therefore only supplies completely assembled and tested valve islands.

A 5/2-way valve, single solenoid, mechanical spring
P 5/2-way valve, single solenoid, pneumatic/mechanical spring
