Festo is a leading global manufacturer of pneumatic and electromechanical systems, components, and controls for process control and factory automation solutions. Celebrating 40 years of innovation in the United States and over 80 years globally, Festo continuously elevates the state of manufacturing with innovations and optimized motion control solutions.
Festo has done it again with another solution for high risk applications for factory and process automation tasks: The Safety Valve MS6-SV-D.
The safety valve MS6-SV-D has two primary functions: exhausting air quickly and reliably to remove stored energy from a machine and to prevent unintended startup of a machine. The safety valve exhausts air pressure from a machine when it sees an input signal such as from an emergency stop button or a light sensor.
The device is a self-testing, redundant system conforming to the requirements of EN ISO 13849-1. Thanks to the 2-channel design and its monitoring, the device fulfills category 3 and 4 requirements, which enables a performance level “e” to be attained.

For Your Safety in Series Machine Building
Economical alternative to the MS6-SV-E – same design, but also suitable for the highest safety requirements:
- 2-channel exhaust valve with “safe venting” function
- Integrated soft-start function saves space.
- Performance Levels d and e possible with programming in the safety PLC
- Can be seamlessly integrated into a service unit MS6
