Solenoid and pneumatic valve series for clamping and locking operations
Festo’s VS series of piston-spool solenoid and pneumatic valves and valve manifolds are designed ideal for simple clamping and locking operations in semiautomatic assembly, end-of-line packaging, conveying, painting, open-pit mining, woodworking, and other applications. The valves can be applied in explosive environments and can be modified to meet the IP67 standard for dust and immersion resistance. The VS series is comprised of VUVS solenoid valves, VUWS pneumatic valves, and the VTUS valve manifolds. VS series flow rate ranges from 700 to 2,000 l/min. Pressure ranges from 0-10 bar and from 2.5 to 10 bar for internally piloted valves. Valve types include 3/2, 5/2, and 5/3. Valve widths range from 20 mm to 30 mm.
Accessories include the ability to select DC and AC voltage coils as well as provide OEMs the choice of mounting the coils themselves or order the valves pre-assembled. In addition to coils, other accessories include a seal kit for the IP67 standard, supply manifold, compact and standard manifold rails, blanking plates, check valves for manifold rails with exhaust air ducting, wall mounting plate, foot mounting bracket, and ATEX variants.
