ROSS CONTROLS' Size 2 Cat-4 Double Valve

ROSS CONTROLS' Size 2 Cat-4 Double Valve

ROSS CONTROLS' new compact 2 DM2(R) Series D valve is the latest addition to ROSS' press application double valve family. The 100 percent dynamically monitored valve has complete memory, is control-reliable and Category-4 rated for press clutch/brake applications.

The DM2 Series D products integrate memory, monitoring and air flow functions into two identical valve elements. In the event of asynchronous valve element movement during actuation or de-actuation, the DM2 Series D valves will lock out, resulting in less than 1 percent residual outlet pressure, inhibiting further operation of the press.

For enhanced safety, DM2 Series D valves were designed so that removing and reapplying air pressure cannot reset the valve. A variety of fault reset options are provided (remote air signal, optional integrated electrical/solenoid, or manual), all of which require overt action per ANSI, EN and many other global regulations.

The DM2 Series D family offers patented dirt-tolerant, wear-compensating poppet design which provides quick response and high flow capacity. To ensure long service life and sure shifting capability in potentially harsh environments, the valve has Teflon-coated back-up rings on its pistons (non-lube service standard, inline lubrication acceptable).

The valve is base-mounted, available with BSPP or NPT pipe threads and was designed with inlet and outlet ports on both sides (plugs included for unused ports). The size 2 valve offers a 3/2 normally closed valve function and is available in 1/4 or 3/8 inch port sizes.
