Details: VAA-4E2A-G1-ZE/P-S


The VAA-4E2A-G1-ZE/P-S module features 4 inputs for the connection of 2- or 3-wire sensors and 2 pneumatic outputs with a high air flow rate for direct control of pneumatic drives in the field. 2 separate 3/2-way valves are integrated in the module. Both the valve and the sensors connected to the module are supplied via the bus cable.

The sensors are connected to the module via M12 x 1-circular connectors; the outputs are connected to the pneumatic drive via standard hose plug-in connectors (LEGRIS LF 3000, 8 mm).

Various bases are available for the module.The U-G1F (or U-G1FA) base provides the connection to the AS-Interface flat cable; the U-G1P base provides the connection to a round cable.

It happens very frequently that output modules must be installed in series with the pneumatic module. If the outputs of the output modules are supplied with external power transferred via a flat cable, a suitable EEMS base (U-G1FF or U-G1FFA) must be used for the pneumatic module. In this case, VAA-4E2A-G1-ZE/P-S accesses the AS-Interface cable instead of the power supply cable.


The slave address must be programmed before commissioning (default setting

Medium: Filtered (5 μm), oiled or unoiled compressed air (2 ... 8 bars).


Dangerous electric voltage can lead to electric shock and burns. The system must be disconnected from the power supply before the beginning of the works.
