The valves integrate memory, monitoring and air flow functions into 2 identical valve elements. In the event of asynchronous valve element movement during actuation or de-actuation, the valves will lock out, resulting in less than 1% residual outlet pressure, inhibiting further operation of the press. For enhanced safety, the valves are designed so that removing and reapplying air pressure cannot reset the valve. A variety of fault-reset options are provided all of which require overt action per ANSI, EN and many other global regulations.
