Rocker valve, 3/2-way

The Bürkert rocker solenoid valve (Bürkert Types 6104 and 6106) is designed for operation with compressed air; all three ports are also accommodated in the valve body.

The valve is also frequently used as a pilot valve for pneumatic valves. A rocker with sealing seats alternately closes valve seats 1 for the air supply (fluid port P) and 2 for venting (fluid port R) of the outlet channel (fluid port A) (see Figure), in a similar manner to the pivoted- armature valve. Solenoid valves with rocker technology are available

with or without isolating diaphragm.

Advantages:

  • Low mass of moving parts
  • 3 fluid ports in one plane
  • Media-separated version available
  • Economical
  • Very long service life
  • Compact design
  • Low coil power
  • High coil system efficiency
  • Also available as explosion-proof version (intrinsically safe).
