The compact 501 Valve Island Series offers a flow capacity of 400 litres/min

Should you require automated valve and cylinder piloting for your application, your choice of the right components will depend on the costs of acquisition, operation, installation and maintenance.

Choosing the right supplier is key, and can denote the durability of the installation and the guarantee of receiving the latest technology.

With the compact 501 Valve Island series as its new offering to the market (which will be presented for the first time at CFIA 2014: Hall 5, Stand E36), ASCO Numatics has provided a reliable solution in line with the latest requirements in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and packaging sectors.

The island consists of a subbase, valves, connection modules, end caps, and also ‘sandwich'' accessories, which are inserted between the valves and subbase (for pressure regulation, pressure isolation kits, 24 volts power separation to valves, etc.). This all combines to provide a very compact and easily connectable unit.

With a flow of 400 litres/min for a valve width of 11mm, the 501 series (particularly the double 3/2 version) is the only product on the market to offer such high performances.

Other options: 5/2 single or double solenoid, and 5/3 functions.

Furthermore, the 501 island offers 3 options for connection to the PLC:

 Multipol (25 or 37 Pin Sub-D connector, 19 Pin round connector or Terminal Strip).

 Fieldbus with the new 580 electronics for an even more compact island.

 Fieldbus with G3 electronics allowing for distributed I/O (Input/Output) mode.

The addition of a visual display will see the end of missed information, as it is now possible to use this feature to configure the installation, view data, obtain diagnostics, and monitor the fieldbus networks EtherNet/IPTM, DeviceNetTM, Modbus TCP, Profibus®, Profinet®, CANopen®, EthernetPowerlink, EtherCAT®.

This offering from ASCO Numatics is doubly interesting in that further to this efficient new product, the manufacturer is offering a comprehensive turnkey solution for its installation into control cabinets. ATEX protection is supported by installation in a cabinet.

This new product also includes features in compliance with the machine safety directive EN/ISO 13849-1.

Other Features:

 Low energy consumption: 0.8 W (24 VCC)

 Internal or external piloting option for air control

 Pressure range: From vacuum to 8 bar

 Pilot Pressure: 2-8 bar

 Ambient Temperature Range: 10-50 °C
