White paper: Automating on/off process valves
White paper: Automating on/off process valves A comparison of actuation methods for pneumatic actuators

On/off process valves can be automated in different ways using pneumatics. This white paper looks at automation using an individual valve, a valve terminal and a digital valve terminal, and compares the three actuation methods in terms of:

• Required hardware/components and the installation

effort involved

• Investment costs

• Potential for compressed air savings and increased

energy efficiency

• Diagnostic and maintenance options

• Potential for function integration

• Possible applications in safety-related circuits

• Possible applications in potentially explosive areas

Pneumatic automation concepts
Pneumatic automation concepts A comparison of individual valves and valve terminals

Individual valves or valve terminals – which is the most suitable option for actuating pneumatically automated process valves? What are the technological and economic differences between the two? We will use a cost comparison to compare and contrast the two options. And what are the differences in terms of commissioning? Which diagnostic options are available with valve terminals for reducing unscheduled downtime? These are the questions that will be examined in this article.

Media separated solenoid valve VYKA
Media separated solenoid valve VYKA Extremely precise!

Whether dosing or operation with continuous flows is what’s needed,

with the media separated solenoid valve VYKA you can do both!

This powerhouse allows you to dose very small quantities with very

compact dimensions.

Miniature valves VOVK
Miniature valves VOVK Only 5.9 mm wide

Extremely slim and small yet high performing, with a pressure range of up to 7 bar or down to 0.9 bar under vacuum: ideal if you want to operate a large number of switching valves next to each other in a small space. The 3/2-way NC valve with a flow rate of up to 5.8 l/min can also be expanded to a valve terminal with up to 20 positions.

Highlights 2020
Highlights 2020 Digitalisation – the key to increased productivity

With this issue of Highlights 2020, you are holding a kind of compass

in your hand. It will show you where the path with Festo might take

you this year.

You will see the first results in our core product range. Numerous new

components like the mini slide DGST or the compact cylinder ADN-S

are useful additions to the portfolio.

A central theme for us is connectivity at all possible levels:

mechanical, electrical and software.

Valve control module VAEM
Valve control module VAEM Precise switching of soenoid valves

The valve control module VAEM makes precise switching of solenoid valves easier than ever. Up to 8 channels can be parameterised individually. A temporary resolution of only 0.2 ms and the control of the valves via current – not voltage – enable extremely high preci­sion, e.g. for dispensing applications. The holding current reduction saves energy and minimises heat input.

Festo AG & Co. KG bistable valves for safety-related applications
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.

Bistable valves in safety-related applications. An example.
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.

Copper-free pneumatic and electrical components
Copper-free pneumatic and electrical components Secondary battery manufacturing industry

Many of Festo’s products are inherently free of copper. For example guides are made essentially of polymer. In order to be able to offer customers who manufacture lithium-ion batteries as many components as possible from our product range, we have optimised products specifically for use in this field – and we have replaced parts that contain copper with copper-free elements.
