The Advanced Valve series from AVENTICS combines compact dimensions and a low weight with comprehensive safety features according to ISO 13849-1. The valve electronics offer galvanic isolation of the logic and actuator signal paths. Exhaust modules allow for correction of the cylinder positions in line with standards without application of energy, achieving peak reliability on the market with a B10 value of 75 million.
The design principle with diagonally arranged valve spool cuts the AV03's dimensions down to the size of a business card. Thanks to the use of high-performance plastics, the valves weigh only half as much as the market average and are therefore particularly suitable for decentral installation near the cylinders. The valve system's module structure includes numerous expansion options for safe switching.
With its galvanically isolated logic voltage (UL) and actuator voltage (UA), AES fulfills proven safety principles in accordance with ISO 13849-2. It has two independent signal paths for safety-related tasks and other control tasks. It is safeguarded against manipulation because it optionally does not include a switch for configuration. Engineers can combine any valve to safety- and pressure-zone ratios thereby putting the entire machine module into a safe state.
