Dear Reader.
We all need to feel safe. We all need to feel safe in the working environment. However, while we all take this for granted, there is quite a lot of uncertainty about how to make it happen.

What does it take to make machinery safe?

Our machinery safety experts worldwide meet customers every day who are struggling to answer that question, following different directives, ISO standards, and risk assessment methods that require the implementation of several safety functions. All this juggled with the other necessity of maintaining the productivity and the machine cost-efficiency.

This month is our contribution to reducing the uncertainty: the latest in safety valves and, as usual, our experts at your disposal.

Welcome to the September edition of the e-Matters

  Innovations at a glance

Series VP-X555/X585 - 3 Port Solenoid Valve - Dual Release Pressure Valve with Soft Start-up Function

Smoothly safe

  • Specially designed according to Safety Standard ISO13849-1 for category 3, 4 - with the use of series VP-X555/X585, the total safety level of the machinery can be upgraded to category 3 or 4.
  • Address your risk reduction and build a highly reliable construction - redundant system with 2 valves, so that if one fails to operate, the other will function and will release residual pressure.
  • Further improve your safety function and smooth out your start-ups - the integrated soft start-up function gradually increases the initial pressure of the pneumatic system.
