Miniature direct-acting solenoid valves

Parker Hannifin has released a new range of miniature direct-acting solenoid valves that has been developed to increase the performance and reduce the maintenance requirements of a wide range of compact pneumatic applications. The new range includes five series of valves: Adex A00, VA01, VA05, EVM and EV15. All the valves are able to offer operating lives of up to 300 million cycles. Due to their size and design, the components feature extremely high operating frequencies of up to 1200cycle/min and response times as fast as 3ms (on) and 1.5ms (off). Each series offers its own unique combination of specifications and benefits for maximum flexibility of installation and operation. For example, models are available for either manifold, inline or subbase mounting, and a range of valve functions are also available depending on the requirements of each application. Measuring as little as 10mm in width and offering flow rates of up to 200ltr/mn, the miniature valves are suitable for use in the textile, semiconductor/electronics, and medical/healthcare industries, or in high speed sorting machines, labelling machines or general automation applications. The direct acting valves can also be used effectively as miniature pilot valves.
