Festo’s new rugged VUVS-…-S and compact VUVG-…-S solenoid valves for individual connection offer several advantages to customers. They are both reliable, attractively priced, combinable as valve terminals and available for delivery in Canada in one to two business days, even in large volumes.
The VUVS-…-S is an electrically and pneumatically actuated directional control valve. With its focused and sturdy characteristics, the VUVS-…-S suits operations in many sectors and markets, from conveying and filling plants to the wood industry, as well as in the actuation of cylinders or compressed air networks. Its modern design covers up to 80 per cent of all applications in tough and harsh environments in automation technology. This valve can be used with an operating pressure of 2-8 bar, and a flow rate of up to 1,000 litres a minute. In addition, it is suitable for use in temperatures from -5 to 50 degrees C.
The VUVG-…-S is available as an electrically or pneumatically actuated valve, and can be expanded to form a valve terminal with an individual connection. This compact solenoid is ideal for applications such as small parts assembly, for the electronics, food and packaging industries, as well as for special machine construction where the design requires pneumatic valves that fit in tight installation spaces. It offers more performance than other compact solenoids, and can be ordered with IP40 or IP65 protection.
Thanks to the highly automated systems used for manufacturing the VG and VS standard valve ranges at Festo’s new Scharnhausen Technology Plant in Germany, the company can deliver large volumes for bulk orders, even on short notice. These new valve types are also stocked at 13 Festo distribution centres worldwide.
The new additions are two of Festo's Stars in Automation — core products tagged with a blue star for fast recognition in the company’s online catalogue.
