Camozzi Automation launches new quick exhaust safety valves

Designed to provide a plug and play solution for OEMs that need to be compliant with Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, Camozzi Automation says that its new quick exhaust 2-way safety valve range also complies with ISO 13849-1 covering the safe design of control systems which perform safety functions

As most machine builders will be aware, safety valves are there to ensure that in the event of an emergency, safety-critical system components can be exhausted and de-energised as quickly as possible. With Camozzi’s new MX-SAFEMAX 2-way valves, this exhausting operation can be accurately monitored through the valves’ integrated anti-tamper sensor, which detects and monitors the position of the spool. The Series MX SAFEMAX is available in two versions to provide machine builders and operators with different performance levels. The single channel version is classified in Category 2 to achieve Performance Level D, whereas the double channel valve is classified in Category 4 to achieve Performance Level E.

Camozzi says that its new high exhaust flow valves are designed for integration into its existing Series MX2 FRL groups and offer an operating temperature of -5°Celsius to +60°Celsius. The valves feature FKM seals which are said to provide excellent resistance against contaminants.
