Air Pilot Actuator Selection

Category: 
    MPA series air pilot actuators attach to the top of our miniature 2-way, 3-way, and 4-way valves and electric switches via a 15/32-32 mounting thread to provide pressure pilot actuation from a pneumatic signal.

All data is tested using 100psi on the valves supply port.  Different line pressures to the valve may result in different minimum pilot pressures required to shift the valve.
