As a driver of innovations in pneumatics with extensive expertise in proportional technology, Festo offers a wide range of proportional valves: proportional-pressure regulators and proportional directional control valves. This will allow you to implement even the most complex of applications easily and reliably. At Festo, you benefit from a huge number of individual solutions and functions that only require minimum effort to mount, parameterise and commission. All proportional valves are generally preset at the factory, while integrated technologies allow you to save time on laborious routine tasks.

You have a choice of various valve series with different working pressures, nominal widths, flow rate ranges and working temperatures, so you can always find the optimal proportional valve for your needs at Festo. We can adapt the valves completely to your individual wishes and special requirements.
Proportional flow control valves control the flow for connected pneumatic consumers. In this section, you will also find proportional directional control valves, piezo valves and valve units as well as proportional flow control valves. Find out about the benefits of each Festo valve.
Proportional flow control valve VEMD is ideal for mass flow control and is characterised by compact installation dimensions. Its truly lightweight design makes it ideal for use in mobile devices for controlling the flow rate. The valve operates precisely and dynamically thanks to the integrated control loop with thermal sensor. It reacts very quickly to a setpoint change and is almost immediately ready for operation.
Short response time, high repeat accuracy, compact size, free of PWIS and certification for ATEX 3GD are all features that make proportional flow control valve VPCF unique. It is perfect for demanding applications, such as controlling inert gas, air flow rates and speed in painting and continuous flow systems; it also meets stringent requirements for dynamic response, repeat accuracy and linearity of the characteristic curve.
The proportional directional control valve MPYE is a 5/3-way proportional valve and has a position-controlled spool. This converts an analogue input signal into a corresponding opening cross-section at the valve outputs. When combined with an external position controller and displacement encoder, this can be used to create a precise pneumatic positioning system.
Compact, powerful and lightweight: the proportional solenoid valve VPWS is a compact 15 mm cartridge valve with a high flow rate. It safely and precisely regulates gas flows, whether oxygen, carbon dioxide, air, nitrous oxide or inert gases.
Based on the technology of the valve MPYE, the VPWP enables the direction of movement to be changed. Thanks to the integrated interface for digitalised data transfer, the integrated pressure sensors and cascade control, this proportional valve is particularly reliable and extremely precise.
When combined with a sensor, the piezo valve VEMP can be used as a control valve. This small and lightweight valve is used for proportional control of pressure or flow rates and is suitable for use in mobile devices such as in medical technology.
The piezo valve VEAE is energy-efficient, lightweight and quiet. It is suitable wherever flow rates of up to 80 l/min need to be controlled precisely and reliably, for instance in stationary or mobile applications in medical technology.
The valve unit VPCB is part of the servo-pneumatic drive solution YHBP for balancers of all kinds. The 3/3-way proportional-pressure regulator with two integrated 2/2-way stop valves is available with or without switching position sensing.
Pressure regulators control the pressure for connected pneumatic consumers. At Festo, you will find a wide range for a large variety of applications.
The pilot-operated pressure regulator with selectable pressure regulation range is optionally available with a setpoint module. The setpoint is entered as an analogue voltage or current signal and the electrical connection is made via a plug.
Proportional valve MPPES is available both as a directly controlled (G1/8) and pilot controlled (G1/4, G1/2) version. The setpoint is entered as an analogue voltage or current signal and the pressure regulation range can be freely selected. The MPPES is also available with a setpoint module.
This valve was specifically designed for high pressures of 10-40 bar. As an individual device with threaded connections, the valve can be used in a variety of applications, for example in stretch blow moulding of PET bottles in the food and beverage industry or on tyre or brake test benches in the automotive industry.
Valves VPPM and VPPM-NPT offer the right parameters for any application. The right control characteristic is easy to select from 3 presets at the touch of a button. The two-stage control loops with multi-sensor control also allow them to be regulated precisely and reliably.
Proportional valve VPPX from the valve range VPPM ensures maximum flexibility and the best process quality. With the freely parameterisable PID controller and the external sensor, even customer-specific tasks can be realised quickly and easily.
The directly actuated valve with integrated pressure compensation regulates dynamically and precisely even in large nominal widths. An efficient moving-coil drive makes the VPPI very dynamic, while a lower-order position controller ensures excellent stability. The full graphic display offers multiple setting options.
VPPE is the most cost-effective proportional valve in the range. It is available both with and without display and optionally with a setpoint module. The setpoint is input as an analogue voltage signal (0-10 V or 4-20 mA).
For pressure ranges up to 10 bar, piezo technology makes the VEAA extremely precise and gives it a very long service life. Other benefits include extremely short switching times, quiet operation and very low energy consumption.
Piezo technology also makes the VEAB very precise and sturdy for pressure ranges from vacuum to 6 bar. In addition, the valve also stands out because of its short switching times, quiet operation and high energy efficiency.
