Air Flow & Pressure Switching Point Adjustment
15 March 2013
New from Festo, the MS6- SV-C combined soft-start and quick-exhaust safety valve offers exceptionally high flow rates in a compact size.
As a result, it can vent air in a system quickly and reliably, giving excellent response and performance in an emergency and thus offering machine builders enhanced safety.
This next generation of valve is highly configurable and claimed to be is the only valve on the market that enables machine builders to freely adjust both the air flow and the pressure switching point, and therefore best optimise their system.
The safety valves are suitable for medium to low risk systems and have certification up to Performance level C in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849-1. They have been designed for applications with low switching frequencies, for example venting after emergency-stop buttons or door locks are activated.
