Schmalz Compact Terminal SCTMi

Fully Networked and Flexible Vacuum Generation

 We are happy to assist you in configuring your compact terminal.

Product inquiry

An increasing range of variants, the optimization of production processes and continuous energy and process control represent the challenges of the future. In order to meet these demands, extremely powerful, flexible and energy-efficient handling systems are required. The answer to these challenges is the Schmalz Compact Terminal SCTMi, a compact unit comprising several vacuum generators for simultaneously and independently handling different parts with one single vacuum system.


  • Central compressed air and energy supply for up to 16 ejectors with just one connection each
  • Compact design and low weight make it suitable for a wide range of applications


  • Can be integrated in a wide range of field-bus systems
  • Process and device parameters can be easily configured via IO-Link or NFC


  • Modular design means various vacuum circuits can be installed to handle different parts with ease
  • Individual ejectors can be selected based on nozzle size, NO, NC or nozzle type


  • All suction circuits can be separately controlled
  • Process transparency, energy consumption control and a variety of diagnostic functions for use in intelligent factories

Configuration Code – Selection and Ordering Aid for the SCTMi

The Schmalz Compact Terminal SCTMi was developed to connect multiple ejectors. Use the following code to configure a Compact Terminal SCTMi to match your application.

Highlights of the Schmalz Compact Terminal SCTMi

Ideal for use in the Smart Production Lines of the Future

The Schmalz Compact Terminal SCTMi offers an enormous range of innovative energy-saving technologies and networking options for use in intelligent factories.

Near-field communication (NFC)

  • Reliable communication via an energy-neutral point-to-point connection
  • Visible data – Both statistical data (such as the serial number) and dynamic process data (such as switching points) can be read out
  • Parameterization option – An app can be used to parameterize the SCTMi directly from a smartphone

Networking in Industry 4.0 systems

  • The IO-Link connection means that recorded data can be viewed and used all the way up to the control level, which allows for bidirectional parameterization and diagnostics in all conventional field-bus systems
  • Condition monitoring increases system availability by providing detailed analyses of the system’s condition and early detection of faults
  • Predictive maintenance improves the performance of gripping systems
  • Energy monitoring optimizes the vacuum system's energy consumption

Automatic air saving function

  • Switches off the suction function once a safe vacuum value has been reached until the next cycle or until the vacuum falls below the safe vacuum value
  • Various setting values and air saving settings can be programmed separately for each ejector
  • Reduction of compressed air consumption by up to 80 %

Integrated electronic sub-bus system

  • Electronic control can be implemented with just a single cable
  • Comprehensive data communication via IO-Link and near-field communication (NFC)
  • All ejectors can be separately programmed and controlled

Eco nozzle technology

  • The new eco nozzle technology provides a considerably higher suction rate with minimal compressed air consumption, permitting energy-efficient vacuum generation
