Sensors & Switches – Electronic Regulators
Electro pneumatic air regulators control air/vacuum pressure steplessly in proportion to an electric signal. They are light weight in design with a bright and easy to read LED display. The monitor output is available either as analog output or switch output.
Series ITVX2000 high pressure electro-pneumatic regulator provides stepless control of air pressure to an electrical signal. They have an easy to read digital pressure display and a power consumption of 3 W or less. The new series has a 5.0 MPa maximum supply pressure.
Series ITV electro-pneumatic and electronic vacuum regulators control air/vacuum pressure steplessly in proportion to an electric signal. They are light weight in design with a bright and easy to read LED display. The monitor output is available either as analog output or switch output. The ITV series is IP65 equivalent.
A hybrid regulator is created from a regulator and a solenoid valve with the electro-pneumatic regulator series VY1. A maximum effective area of 670mm² (2B) can be covered by the combination of an ultra-compact electro-pneumatic pilot valve (22.4 X 30 X 39) and a 3 port, high-capacity exhaust main regulator (VEX1*00 series). Having the amplifier built into the electro-pneumatic pilot valve, only an external (24V DC) power supply and (1 to 5V DC) signal voltage need to be connected making handling simple. Using the VVEXB/2/4 series, a maximum 10 station manifold is possible.
Electro-pneumatic regulator series IT has a variation for each output flow rate. In addition to the existing conduit entry, a DIN connector is available. A dedicated exhaust port (M5) is installed to remove air from the nozzle. The IT series comes with monitor signal output and shock/ vibration resistance.
Series IC, controller for electro-pneumatic regulator converts digital input signal into analog output signal. It has a maximum 10 bit parallel input signal and a 4 point preset output pressure. This series is mainly used in combination with the series ITV0000 w/o a display function.
PVQ series, compact proportional solenoid valve, was designed by SMC with a direct poppet construction. This construction enables low leakage, while de-energized. PVQ series has been used in applications such as air blow, flow control, hand piece control for dental unit and other respiratory equipment, as well as, cooling for laser machinery etc.
A proportional control valve system provides the ability to infinitely control the position of the internal spool assembly which increases or decreases the amount of flow or pressure being released from the valve. SMC offers 2 types of proportional control valves, a pressure type VEP which controls secondary pressure by varying the current through the solenoid, and a flow rate type VEF which controls air flow by varying current through the solenoid.
The 5 port electro-pneumatic proportional valve, Series VER can be used to switch and actuate a cylinder and to perform stepless pressure control of port A through electric signals. The VER2000 (direct operated type) is available with 1/4 or 3/8 port size. The VER4000 (internal pilot type) and the VER4001 (external pilot type) are available with 3/8, 1/2 or 3/4 port size. Thread types include Rc, G, NPT or NPTF. The VER is also available without a sub-plate.
