Pneumatic solenoid valves

Festo has launched a range of pneumatic solenoid valves meeting the new ISO 15407 standard favoured for heavy-duty industrial applications such as automotive manufacturing.
This new ISO standard is the international version of the widely-used German VDMA 24 563 specification. The new design – the VSVA Series – enhances robustness by means of a single, low-profile connector located in the centre of the valve body. This provides the control signal interface for all valves whether they are single or double solenoid types. The approach reduces the profile of the electrical connection – and typically the number of connections that have to be made – minimising the possibility of accidental damage in industrial environments. The VSVA series of valves meets the standard for individually-connected valves (ISO 15407-1), in both the 02 and 01 sizes (1/8 and 1/4in BSP ports respectively).
