Festo offers an easy-to-use NAMUR valve range
17 May 2015
Festo's new VSNC NAMUR valves are durable and available at a lower cost than previous models. They also come with a choice of coils suitable for many applications across a wide range of industries.
The coils are available with intrinsic safety as well as with other protection methods such as non-sparking and encapsulated protection - all to IEC EX (ATEX).
One valve within the new range offers both 3/2- or 5/2- way functions. This is achieved not by changing the seal, as is common in other valves, but by rotating one single seal. This means there are no additional seals shipped with the product that have to be kept safe until required.
With the VSNC the function can be quickly and easily changed with no additional parts. Machine builders and maintenance engineers can thus reduce stock and associated costs as just one valve is required for use across a wide range of applications.
The VSNC is robust, with flow rates of 1000 litre/min and offers an extended temperature range of -20°C - +60°C. Coils are available in seven different voltages including ac and dc variants and with IP65 protection.
The valves are available in two versions: a standard unit with plastic covers and a brass solenoid armature tube or one with stainless steel solenoid armature tube and an aluminium body. Both types are ex stock.
