MS2 regulators from Festo are not only the smallest yet in the MS-Series of standard service units, but also the smallest and lightest regulators on the market, the company says.
The MS2 compressed air regulator weighs 28 to 31 g, the MS2 filter regulator 35 to 38 g, and both have a width of 28 to 31 mm depending on the connection (M5 or QS6) used.
With its optimized design, the Festo unit can be installed directly on moving components in dynamic applications such as end-of-arm tooling.
Flow rates are 350 l/min for the pressure regulator and 310 l/min for the filter regulator, which can filter particles down to a size of 5 microns.
Tubing with an outside diameter of 6 mm can be connected directly to the MS2 when using QS6 connections.
There is no need for additional push-in fittings, which further reduces installation cost and space.
