  1. It looks like a lot of valve manufactures are now offering Dual 3-way (2 x 3/2) valves along with their 3 Position 4-Way (5/3) valves.   Can anyone tell me or direct me to information on the advantage or disadvantage of using the Dual 3-way (2 x 3/2) over the 3 Position 4-Way (5/3) valves?   Thank you in advance for your help

  10. overload relays

    Sounds correct to me. 24Vdc signal direct to starter. Overload Relay does it's job and if tripped, power to motor is removed and PLC gets signal that O/L is tripped. I motor starter boxes with push button on / off buttons only typical to wir O/L trip contacts in series with coil. Bud
