Ross Controls’ CrossMirror Series CM Size 0 valves are now BG Certified per the DIN ES ISO 138491 PL e standard. These valves are intended to be used to return a cylinder towards a safe position when de-energised or when a fault occurs. Applications could include pneumatic cylinder presses, welding equipment, and pneumatic doors to name a few.

The third party assessment and certification was performed by DGUV Test, regarded as one of the approved bodies for Machinery and Safety Components according to EC-Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and German Product Safety Act.

The ROSS Category 4 Safe Cylinder Return CrossMirror Series CM Valve enables rapid exhaust of downstream air when de-energised to reverse a cylinder’s motion and return it to a safe position. This 5/2 valve is suitable for addressing a single hazard and has latch out capabilities that inhibit operation until the valve is reset should a fault occur.

CrossMirror Series CM Valves can be installed individually or multiple units can be connected together with manifold bases. The CrossMirror Series CM Valve is the latest addition to the ROSS’ Safe Cylinder Return Valve family that covers a wide range of sizes that are available with either solenoid or air piloted options.
