The Metal Work Pneumatic Valves offered by Venus Automation are from the SAFE AIR series. These valves have certifications complying with safety standards and hence can be used in applications requiring certain safety ratings. Safety valves allow the user to safely and reliably shut off the pneumatic energy, stopping compressed air flow to the machine and allowing downstream pressure to exhaust. For example, the safety function can activate when operators reach into hazardous areas or during an Estop condition, as well as to meet the performance level (PLr) determined by a risk assessment.
