A valve manifold with zoned safety capabilities

The Numatics 503 Series valve manifold (photo) enables end users to configure up to three safety circuits in a production machine. The manifold can create up to three independent electro-pneumatic safety zones, while also allowing independent non-safe sections to coexist within one manifold assembly. The operator does not have to shut down the entire machine by releasing compressed air with a redundant safety or control dump valve. Instead, the Numatics 503 Series valve manifold can be configured to shut down air and power only to the group of valves that controls the machine’s motion in the operator’s vicinity. The flexible approach also significantly reduces safety system cost and allows machine space to be saved for other purposes, says the company. — ASCO Valve, Inc., Florham Park, N.J.
