Valve Manifold Adapts To Most Pneumatic Applications
The Festo MPA-L valve manifold is scalable down to a single valve slice, which enables directional valves to be adapted to most pneumatic applications for discrete and process automation. With a high flow-rate-to-size ratio, the MPA-L valve manifold is also suited for food and beverage packaging and semiconductor fabrication.
Featuring a rugged, lightweight and corrosion-resistant polymer sub base, the manifold’s valves are electrically connected to an internal printed circuit board, which provides exact coil allocation. Electric multi-pin connector options are also available, as well as network interfaces to most common industrial and Ethernet protocols, via Festo’s CPX distributed I/O family.
Available valve functions include 5/2, 5/3 and dual 3/2 types. Festo’s patented cartridge principle is used in all valves, which can run pressure and vacuum with multiple zones. Other key features include up to 32 valve locations; max flow rate to 360 Nl/min; standard and metric ports for all markets; and other functions and accessories such as pressure regulators D-sub, IDC/ribbon cable connectors, bus networks, and Ethernet connections.
