The Globe Archimedes compact vane air motors are available in uni-directional and bi-directional models.  When the uni-directional air motor is used, it is sufficient to use a 2/2 or a 3/2 valve.  For the reversible motor you can use either a 5/3 or two 3/2 valves to gain directional control.

Our experienced staff are capable of selecting your motors based on your applications and can help you make the right choice.  Please use our selection form or call us to discuss your needs.
