VPPM / Proportional valve


universal design award 2009

universal design award 2009

The VPPM is used for tasks that necessitate high levels of repetition accuracy, good dynamics and short switching times. In addition nearly any conceivable proportional valve variant can be created with just a few basic components. The display and functional elements can be directly operated and have been kept to a minimum. Thanks to readily understandable symbols, operating the valve is simple, quick and intuitive. Blue is used as a color code for the control elements. The 9-segment illuminated display has been newly designed, making it clearer and easier to read under difficult light conditions.
