Festo EPCS

Simplified Motion Series consists of different electromechanical components together with a simple and application-optimised combination of motor and servo drives, the so-called integrated drive. This solution does not require an external servo drive. The electric alternative for very simple movement and positioning tasks does not require the usual commissioning process that is needed for traditional electric drive systems, which can often be quite complex. It also offers special movement characteristics such as gently cushioned retracting into the end position, or simplified press-fitting and clamping functions.


This is quick and easy without the need for any software, computer or other accessories, because all parameters can be set manually directly on the drive. Simplified Motion Series is then connected directly to the controller, either via digital I/O (DIO) or IO-Link®, both of which are integrated as standard.
Highlights of the Simplified Motion Series
  • Simplified functionality for simple movements
  • A variety of movements with different mechanical systems
  • Integrated products eliminate the need for a control cabinet
  • Quick and easy commissioning without software
  • No special expertise required for commissioning
  • Digital I/O (DIO) or IO-Link® integrated as standard

Electric cylinder EPCS

The EPCS is suitable for single linear movements in every mounting position and its smoothly running ball screw drive allows precise and rapid positioning. As an extremely cost-effective complete solution, the electric cylinder is ideally suited for applications such as positioning or clamping, distribution, sorting or ejection, and in handling systems as a simple Z-axis.
  • Three sizes with a max. stroke of 500 mm
  • Simple and cost-effective position sensing with proximity sensor, flexible, reliable and quick to mount, can be retrofitted or repositioned at any time
  • Optional: ducted compressed air compensation prevents particles or moisture from entering and particles leaking into the environment
  • Unique "one-size-down" assembly system in conjunction with the spindle and toothed belt axes ELGS-BS/-TB
  • The motor can be rotated 4 x 90° – this can be modified at any time​​​​​​​
