Anti-Tiedown “Touch” Control Systems


CSVs are two-hand anti-tiedown controls. They provide safer operation of air presses, drill fixtures, clamping fixtures, cylinders, valves, or light assembly equipment. Concurrent actuation of the recessed buttons generates a signal. Releasing either button stops the signal which cannot be re-instituted until both buttons are again actuated concurrently.

  • Low Stress types are for high production applications where operator fatigue is a concern
  • CSV-101W and CSV-102W are designed for use in a wash-down environment
  • CSV-107 logic unit responds to remote signals
  • CSV-107 may be purchased alone or with low stress signal valves
  • CSV-101, CSV-101LS, and CSV-101W have a flow of Cv = 0.11
  • CSV-102, CSV-102LS, and CSV-102W have a flow of Cv = 1.00

Function of CSV’s

Concurrent actuation of the recessed buttons generates a signal. Releasing one or both buttons immediately stops the signal which cannot be re-instituted until both buttons are again actuated concurrently.
Low Stress (LS) models are for high production applications where operator fatigue is a concern. Needing only 6 ounces of force to actuate, LS units ease the stress on worker’s hands and wrists and greatly reduce the risk of repetitive motion disorders. Standard models require 18 ounces of force to actuate.

For Safer Operation of Your Machinery
CSVs are two-hand anti-tiedown controls. When used, they provide safer operation of air presses, drill fixtures, clamping fixtures, cylinders, valves, or light assembly equipment. Models 101, 101LS, 102, 102LS and 103 have compact and completely self-contained controls, recessed actuation buttons built in the ends and a universal mount for convenient positioning. For remote two-hand, anti-tiedown operations, see model CSV-107 below.

CSV-107 Logic Unit Responds To Remote Signals

CSV-107 is designed to actuate 3 or 4-way power valves or directly power smaller single-acting cylinders. A signal can only be initiated by concurrent actuation from two remote inputs. Releasing one or both buttons immediately stops the signal and the unit cannot recycle until both signals are again simultaneously actuated.

Warning: Actuators for CSV-107 must be positioned so that they may not be accidentally tripped or operated in an unsafe manner. Do not actuate CSV-107 with foot operated valves.
CSV’s are intended to operate pneumatic valves and cylinders. They are not meant to be used on full or partial revolution fly wheel presses, power brakes or other similar devices.
