ASCO Numatics, manufacturer of comprehensive fluid automation, flow control and pneumatics solutions, introduced the Numatics 501 Series panel-mount adapter plate.
“The 501 Series panel mount adapter plate fulfils our customers’ needs for space savings, easy panel construction and assembly”, said Robert W. Kemple, Jr., executive vice president, sales and marketing – Americas, ASCO Numatics. “It eliminates the need for complex tubing routing and bulkhead fittings, reduces custom machining and drilling and simplifies panel layout.”
The mounting plate adapter allows OEMs and end users to directly connect the 501 Series valve manifold to a panel in the wall or floor of a cabinet. All panel strength, integrity and certifications are maintained. The panel-mount adapter plate is ideal for applications in the process industries where directional control valves are installed in a cabinet due to environmental or packaging constraints. “The 501 Series valve provides the flow of a 15mm to 20mm valve in a compact 11mm size, offering a distinct advantage to the OEM engineer designing panels where space is at a premium”, said Kemple.
The 501 Series has a unique shut-off configuration that allows for easy isolation (hot swapping) and replacement of a valve without disrupting operations. It comes in three sizes and is available in stainless steel and anodized aluminium.
