Redundant Safety Exhaust 
Valve E28 from Wilkerson

View complete specifications for the E28 Series (starting on page C8 of the complete Wilkerson Catalog PDF)





  • Proven control reliable technology with integrated soft start
  • Soft start application of air to the system when energized; can be adjusted for slower or faster buildup of system pressure
  • Rapid exhaust of downstream air when de-energized to remove stored energy and allow safe access.
  • Memory, monitoring, and air flow control functions are integrated into two identical valve elements. Valves lock-out if asynchronous movement of valve elements occurs during actuation or de-actuation, resulting in a residual outlet pressure of less than 1% of supply.
  • Reset can only be accomplished by the integrated electrical (solenoid) reset. Cannot be reset by removing and re-applying supply pressure.
  • Basic 3/2 normally closed valve function: Dirt tolerant, wear compensating poppet design for quick response and high flow capacity.
  • LED indicators of main solenoid operation, reset solenoid operation, and status indicator condition.
  • Optional transducer for monitoring of downstream pressure in the system.n>
  • Dual exhaust silencers included.
  • Not for use with clutch / brake applications.
  • For use in conjunction with a safety relay or safety PLC.
