Parker P33T Safety Redundant Exhaust Valve
Safety interface for external monitoring
The P33 Safety Exhaust valve is a redundant, externally monitored, 3/2 normally closed safety valve. The primary function of this valve is to ensure safe and rapid exhaust of trapped air from a machine in the event of a fault in the safety circuit or in an emergency e-stop situation via a redundant two channel design for fail safe operation. 
Easy electrical interface with M12 connectors to safety circuit.

  • External monitoring provides a cost and space saving advantage
  • Solid state pressure sensors provide accurate, fast fault detection
  • Quick visual LED indicators on the front of the valve
  • Suitable for stand alone use or modular mounting to P32 or P33 FRL assembly

Parker Linear Motor Technology
From single axis components to custom designed multi-axis systems
In many applications, Parker linear motors offer distinct advantages over conventional rotary drive systems. When using a linear motor, there is no need to couple the motor to the load by means of intermediate mechanical components such as gears, ballscrews, or belt drives. The load is directly connected to the motor. Therefore, there is no backlash or elasticity from the moving elements. Thus, the dynamic behavior of the servo control is improved and higher levels of accuracy are achieved.

Parker has one of the broadest offerings in available linear motor technologies. From component or “kit” style motors, packaged positioning tables, to complete custom engineered systems, Parker can provide a solution for any linear motion requirement.
