Proportional valves are available in nine orifice sizes ranging from 0.062 to 0.625. All the valves in this line feature a 250 Hz frequency response and a less than 3% hysteresis. The valves perform at low pressure drops and are for medical, industrial control, and alternative fuel applications. An isolation diaphragm separates the working fluid from the coil and armature. This limits the fluid path exclusively to the poppet area, making these valves suitable for both gases and liquids.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
