Festo MH1 Miniature Valves
Designed for operation in confined spaces, Festo's MH1 Miniature Valves are only 10 mm wide. The 2/2-way or 3/2-way versions are compatible with the range of Festo compact cylinders, rotary actuators and slides. With up to 24 solenoids mounted on a manifold, the connections could get complicated. Festo engineers used a sub-D connector to have a compact, clean-looking valve assembly and to avoid exposed wires. The connector is part of a design option that provides protection to EN 60529. The fast-switching (4 msec response time) valves target light assembly, medical technology, semiconductor and process industries.
