RS will also now provide Festo's latest technology releases, such as SOOD and SOOE photoelectric sensors and VUVS pneumatic solenoid valves.
The Festo SOOD and SOOE laser and LED opto-electronic sensor families include diffuse sensors with background suppression, through-beam sensors, retro-reflective sensors, retro-reflective sensors for transparent objects, and laser contrast and distance sensors. SOOD integrated miniature sensors can cover a variety of object detection tasks in small confined spaces. They offer fast performance at a cost-effective price. SOOE sensors can provide all optical functions for object detection in an identical sensor housing.
Festo’s VUVS heavy-duty pneumatic solenoid valve range is flexible and reliable, with long service life. There are around 20 products in the family including the VUVS-L series, designed around a piston spool with sealing cartridge and offering a flow rate up to 2300 l/min, and the VUVS-LK series, using a piston spool with sealing ring and giving a flow rate up to 1000 l/min. A range of mounting options is available.
The expanded range of Festo products is available in Benelux, France, Germany, Italy and the UK.
