Valve Plugs with Power Reduction

Energy efficiency in machine tools is an important issue. It's well known that relatively simple measures in big installations quickly add up to considerable savings.

Murrelektronik's MSUD valve connectors with power reduction are one of those small things. Our pre-wired, form-A valve connectors supply 100% power when starting up but, when a system is on hold, reduce their power consumption by 40 to 60 percent (pulse width modulation – PWM). If there are a lot valves in a machine, the savings will really add up.
