Employing a side-by-side arrangement of output ports said to be more versatile than conventional over-under designs, the Moduflex miniaturized pneumatic valve system allows straight or elbow connections to the application. Ceramic slide plate technology, furthermore, provides a 100 million-cycle service life with 50% fewer working parts.
Debuting at this year's Hannover Fair, the system allows operation of cylinders with bore sizes to 100 mm. Working pressure is vacuum to 8 bar with flow figures of Size 1, 400 N(liter)/min (Cv 0.38), and Size 2, 1,200 N(liter)/min (Cv 1.13). The low consumption 24V dc electrical solenoids can be supplied with cable plugs for individual wiring, or with plug- together integrated electrical connections for multi-wire connection.
All-plastic construction lowers weight and improves electrical insulation; a "one screw" design simplifies maintenance.
