Info Valve and valve terminal series VG

Small, compact and have high flow rates. They are available

in individual valves and fieldbus-compatible valve terminals. Ideal

for all price-sensitive applications.

Miniature pilot valve for the VUVG Small and inexpensive

Its size makes it ideal in tight spaces and it comes complete with vacuum functions. It is used in medical devices as well as for liquid handling in laboratory automation.

Valve series VUVG and VUVS – two ranges for lots of applications Compact or robust!

New: two more additions to the existing valve range VUVG and VUVS. The VUVG-...-S and VUVS-...-S are valves that have focused features – with the usual Festo quality and an outstanding price/per-formance ratio.

White Paper: Piston spool valves and poppet valves A technical comparison of available solenoid valves

Why should you choose your valves carefully?

 

The increasing demands placed on valve technology in recent years have led to a formidable extension of the range of available technologies and valve types, models, and properties. The most commonly used are poppet valves and piston spool valves. Nowadays, there is hence a much wider choice of customised valve technology to successfully plan a project. However, choosing the right parts for the application at hand requires comprehensive knowledge and an accurate appraisal by the consulting engineer or technician. This White Paper is intended to offer you a brief overview.

 

This white paper contains information on:

 

  • An introduction to valve technologies
  • Poppet valves, piston spool valves and the cartridge principle – what you need to know
  • Which valve type suits you best? A valve selection aid

Bistable valves in safety-related applications. An example. Technical report TR-300003

Summary:
Due to their bistable characteristics, bistable valves in certain applications present the user with tasks that seem to be difficult to solve. This application example is to show how a solution can be developed systematically taking the various operating states and operating transitions into account. Considering the various hazards in the various operating statuses of the machine appears a sensible approach to finding the solution. They require chronologically successive, different reactions of the safety circuit to implement the required protective measures.

Festo AG & Co. KG bistable valves for safety-related applications Technical Report - TR-300004

Summary:
Technical Reports 2 and 3 [1-2] and DGUV Information FB HM-076 [3] already explained the circumstances under which bistable valves can be used in safety-related applications. The present report links these reports to the current product portfolio of Festo AG & Co. KG. The suitability of the bistable valves listed for safety-related applications can be confirmed taking the previous series of technical reports and respective technical documentation of the individual components into consideration.
