Ross Controls Posted 12/09/2015
(TROY, MI) – ROSS announces their CrossMirror® Series CM Size 0 valves are now BG Certified per the DIN ES ISO 138491 PL e standard. These valves are intended to be used to return a cylinder towards a safe position when de-energized or when a fault occurs. Applications could include pneumatic cylinder presses, welding equipment, and pneumatic doors to name a few.
The third party assessment and certification was performed by DGUV Test who is regarded as one of the approved bodies for Machinery and Safety Components according to EC-Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and German Product Safety Act.
The ROSS Category 4 Safe Cylinder Return CrossMirror® Series CM Valve enables rapid exhaust of downstream air when de-energized to reverse a cylinder’s motion and return it to a safe position. This 5/2 valve is ideal for addressing a single hazard and has latch out capabilities that inhibit operation until the valve is reset should a fault occur.
CrossMirror® Series CM Valves can be installed individually or multiple units can be connected together with manifold bases. The CrossMirror® Series CM Valve is the latest addition to the ROSS’ Safe Cylinder Return Valve family that covers a wide range of sizes that are available with either solenoid or air piloted options.
