JSY plug-in type is compatible with fieldbus and ethernet communication module such as EX600 and EX260.
Pressure and Flow Sensors
SMC offers a range of pressure monitoring devices to meet the diverse application requirements of our customer base. Within the collection you will find IP ratings as high as IP67, IO-Link capability, and pneumatic or liquid compatibility. Multi-line, multi-color displays offer more information with better visibility. Digital and analog outputs characterize operational conditions in useful ways.
Air Flow Sensors
Air flow sensors provide instantaneous flow information for the compressed air supply of your applications. Sensors may have integrated displays, or remote units with separate ouput monitors. Displays may be mult-line and multi-color, offering more information with better visibility. Digital and analog outputs characterize operational conditions in useful ways. Features include multiple flow ranges, enclosure ratings up to IP65, and IO-Link capability.
Liquid Flow Sensors
Liquid flow devices include instantaneous flow sensors, mechanical flow switches giving an ouput signal at a set point, and a flow controller for supply stability. Sensors within the collection are optimized for a variety of conditions, including compatibility with water, coolant, or chemicals; detection method; space constraints; and manifold configuration. Outputs range from simle ON/OFF confirmation signals, mA or V analog, or digital IO-Link.
General Use Compact Chillers
HRS, HRS-R, HRSE compact recirculating chillers are designed to meet the widest range of single-point applications in both industrial and technology settings. The package design is robust enough for the factory, yet ergonomic and compact for lab installations. Coolant can be either heated or cooled within the set temperature range. Choose from eight cooling capacities, air or water cooled refrigerant, and global power supply options.
Rack Mount Chillers
Rack mounting recovers desktop or floor space, permitting stacking of related devices and mobility, depending on the rack style. Recirculating fluid removes heat from the process source, which is then removed from the fluid by an air cooled refrigeration circuit. Air cooling frees the installation from dependence on facility cooling water. Coolant temperature stability is ±0.1°C within a set temperature range of 5 to 35°C.
HEC recirculating chillers satisfy low capacity temperature control demand in the range of 140 to 1200 watts. A refrigerant-free, thermoelectric peltier element controls temperature from 10.0 to 60.0°C, with precision of ±0.1°C under stable load conditions. Extracted heat can be air or water cooled. 15 alarms support functional troubleshooting, and can be observed on the LCD display or over serial communication. Low noise and vibration, compact dimensions and flexible power requirements are suitable for laboratory benchtop service.
KKA Quick Connect Couplers
S coupler series KK employs a unique connection method. A slim body design and large effective area are achieved with a construction that does not use steel balls or valve springs and therefore does not restrict the flow path. Together with a reduction of the body size, pressing parts and resin parts are used to achieve an overall weight reduction.
Air Preparation Equipment
Membrane Air Dryers
Membrane air dryer series IDG is available in a single unit or combination unit style. IDG/M models combine a mist separator and micro mist separator with a single unit. IDG/V models combine a regulator with the IDG/M model. Options available include one-touch fitting exhaust of purge air. If purged air is not exhausted around membrane air dryer, air is exhausted with tubing away from its dryer.
Modular FRL Units
SMC'S new AC-B series of modular type F.R.L. unit is available in six basic sizes and is interchangeable with the existing modular AC line. The AC-B series has a maximum set pressure of 125 psi and offers embedded gauge and pressure switch options not found in the AC-A. The element and bowl on the AF series is now one-piece, making element replacement easier. Required maintenance space has been reduced by as much as 46% on the AFseries, depending on the body size. Bowls on size 30 and up are now covered with a transparent bowl guard, completely protecting them from the enviromnent, and making the interior contents visible from 360 degrees. The base color of the new AC-B is uban white, maintaining a clean, modern look.
Unlike bar or nozzle types, this fan ionizer does not require a pneumatic air supply. The fan draws in ambient air, then ionizes the air with four electrodes located around the perimeter of the discharge grill. The fan can be wired into a 24VDC machine power supply, or use the optional 120V AC adapter. The small form factor adapts well to enclosure mounting, or select the benchtop mounting bracket for free positioning.
By neutralizing static electricity, our IZS bar style Ionizer prevents damage to work pieces caused by sticking. Static charge removal time can be reduced with an optional sensor that directly senses charge allowing the removal of static electricity at high speed (0.3s) by generating the appropriate ion polarity. Needle cartridges can be replaced quickly to reduce down time. The IZS bar style Ionizer is available in various lengths to meet the specific needs of your work area.
The IZN nozzle Ionizer provides a more compact anti-static solution. A 16mm body width permits installation in narrow spaces. This ionizer is perfect for the removal of static electricity on light electrical pieces and ideal for dust removal on injection molded parts.
