A directional control valve is used to change, open or block the flow of compressed air in a pneumatic system. That is why compressed air is normally used as the fluid in pneumatic actuators. Universal directional control valves from Festo differ in terms of their design, switching positions and flow paths, as well as in the type of actuation. Our product portfolio includes a variety of different pneumatically operated and solenoid-operated universal directional control valves.

Pneumatic valves are used in fluid engineering. Like any valve, they have a control function that is used to regulate the amount of fluid that is allowed to flow through them. Solenoid valves are electrically operated valves that differ in terms of the current used, the strength of the magnetic field and the mechanism used to regulate the medium. When an electrical current is applied, the solenoid valve is activated and, depending on the control type, operates as either a directly, a servo-controlled or force pilot operated valve.

Electrically actuated valves from Festo use the force of the solenoid to open and close valves. They control the flow rate of compressed air in pneumatic systems and circuits. Below we present our highlights of universal directional control valves from the Festo Core Range.
The entire VUVG range, as an individual valve or a valve terminal, is designed to cater precisely for all your requirements. This universal directional control valve has been newly designed on the inside and now offers an outstanding combination of high flow rates and a compact design.
This is the further development of the proven "Tiger" valve – and at a very favourable price. The universal directional control valve VUVS from Festo has been used successfully in production for years. Its simple design is based on the same design principle, and it is now even more robust and flexible.
Universal directional control valves from Festo are available as completely ready-to-install system solutions that make optimum use of the available space, even where space is limited. Thanks to their material-saving design, Festo universal directional control valves are cost-effective and energy-efficient and do not need time-consuming installation. However, should you ever need support, we have numerous service options to provide you with the support you need.
