Pneumatic Valve System

The MPA Valve Series is a modular subbase system that can be modified and expanded from individual valves and multiple connection plates to fieldbus valve terminals.

With the help of threaded connectors, components such as valve units, electronic modules, and pressure-supply modules can mount on subbases and be assembled into systems onsite. Valve functions are 5/2, 5/3, 2 3 3/2, 2 3 2/2, and 3/2 with external air supply. There are LED indicators on each valve and diagnostic messages available via fieldbus. A serial bus controls valves with up to 64 solenoids. Valve terminals can be reconfigured and expanded easily.
