Pneumatic Directional Control Valves, Series AV03/AV05

Pneumatic Directional Control Valves, Series AV03/AV05 - advantages at a glance

  • Up to 45% less space than similar valves
  • Lightweight, polymer design
  • Up to 128 valve coils per manifold
  • Design custom valve manifolds online

AV system – the new standard for manifolds

The new AVENTICS AV (Advanced Valve) pneumatic directional control valves are smaller, lighter and  more efficient than most similar valves. The unique diagonal shape of the valve optimizes flow  capacity. The AV03 valves feature flow of 0.3 Cv, and the larger AV05 feature flow of 0.7 Cv. The plug-in design allows for quick valve change-out. Configure your own custom valve manifolds online quickly. One scan of the QR code on the valve manifold using your cell phone or tablet, and you are immediately forwarded to your configuration via a wireless connection. Using the AVENTICS AES (Advanced Electronic System) you can add bus modules, I/O, or an E/P (electro-pneumatic pressure regulator).

AV bottom ported

Depending on their requirements, our customers also want to be able to install the AV system in control cabinets. The AV-BP (bottom-ported) makes this possible. And with the help of our transition plate, customers can also take advantage of the benefits of a pneumatic multipole.


The small size of the AV modular system with a flow rate of up to 300 l / min is suitable for smaller cylinders. Due to its small size and low weight, the AV03 can be placed close to the actuator. Thus, compressed air savings of up to 45% are possible. The fieldbus connection AES has been specially developed for the size of AV03, so that space is not an important factor.


With AV05, flow rates of up to 700 l / min are possible. This makes it possible to comfortably control cylinders up to 80 mm in diameter. Of course, the dimensions and weight are a benchmark as well! AV05 can also be combined with AV03, if required. As with AV03, control is possible via multipole or fieldbus with the AES.

AES - The Advanced Electronic System

In combination with the Advanced Electronic System AES, the AV valve systems deliver their full potential. Up to 64 valves, diagnostics of the valve drivers, voltage zones and monitoring, galvanic isolation, integration into fieldbus systems, I/O module integration as well as Internet of Things functionalities leave nothing to be desired.

Fieldbus protocols:

  • Profinet
  • Ethernet IP
  • EtherCAT
  • Powerlink
  • Profibus
  • CANopen
  • DeviceNet

I/O modules:

  • Digital inputs / outputs
  • Analog inputs / outputs
  • Control module
  • Electrical connections: M8x1, M12x1, D-Sub, spring clamp
