Ross Controls: Double valve for press clutch/brake applications

The DM2® Series D valve from Ross Controls is a 100% dynamically-monitored valve that has complete memory, is control-reliable and Category-4 rated for press clutch/brake applications.


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.
