SMC solenoid valves and manifolds feature low power consumption, high flow rates, quick response times and clean aesthetic designs. SMC solenoid valves are used extensively in the semi conductor, automotive,  packaging, medical, specialty machine, and machine tool industries. Whatever your application is, we have a dependable solenoid valve series that will accommodate your most demanding application.


Solenoid Valves - 3 Port

Solenoid Valves - 3 Port

SMC 3 Port Valves are an innovative combination of space efficiency and performance superiority which provides real value to the design solution. Whether designed in a manifold or used as a single valve,  these small profile valves increase design flexibility and minimizes space requirements. Low power pilot solenoid design, which dramatically reduces thermal heat generation.  These valves can be configured on  base mounted manifolds, or individually on sub-plates, creating a variety of solutions to meet your broadest engineering needs.


Solenoid Valves - Direct Operated

Solenoid Valves - Direct Operated

SMC offers Direct Operated Solenoid Valve in 3 port, 4 port, 5 port and suitable for vacuum and copper free application. Direct acting solenoid valve provides high speed, lightweight and high flow performance. The valve will operate at pressures from 0 psi to rated maximum pressure and can be configured as stand alone or in manifold base. 


Fieldbus System

Fieldbus System

The advantage of a fieldbus system is the amount of flexibility and control it gives you in addition to the significant labor savings. SMC's latest innovations in fieldbus technology give you the power of  decentralized communication and the flexibility needed for your control design. SMC supports wide variety of open fieldbus protocols to suit your networking needs including EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, EtherCAT,  DeviceNet, Profibus DP and many more.


Air Operated Valves

Air Operated Valves

Air operated valves are available in body ported or base mounted styles.  Many air operated valves use the same manifolds as series solenoid types. One-touch fittings are available on body ported types.  Available thread types are Rc, G, NPT or NPTF.


Mechanical & Hand Operated Valves

Mechanical & Hand Operated Valves

SMC mechanical valves have been designed to meet general industry standards and are capable of long, trouble-free life under stringent operating conditions. The simple construction, utilizing corrosion  resistant aluminum die cast bodies with optional heavy duty actuators and Buna N seal design, ensure positive operation and media control.


Solenoid Valves - ISO

Solenoid Valves - ISO

SMC's ISO series valves conforms to ISO standard.  A choice of metal or rubber seal increases compatibility with various operating and environmental conditions.  Manifolds are available with a wide range of  interface options to meet a variety of application requirements.


Valve Manifold Configurator

Valve Manifold Configurator

Our SY Series manifolds and valves can be designed by you.  Online valve manifold configurator that allows you to design your own valve/manifold. You can choose your I/O type, select a specific valve for each station and even choose blanking plates for future expansion.  After designing your SY Series valve/manifold, you can download the CAD model and BOM for your assembly.
