Pneumatic position monitoring

Bosch Rexroth has expanded the functionality of the pneumatically-driven MS01 controlling and measuring system. The system checks the presence, position, shape, and dimension of test objects during automatic supply and processing of workpieces. The MS01 is equipped with an integrated cleaning pressure function to ensure that the measuring results are accurate despite dirt particles or coolant. The system has an additional connection for a permanent sealing air function.

Electro-pneumatic pressure regulator

The electro-pneumatic ED02 pressure regulator from Bosch Rexroth measures 76 x 60 x 30 mm and is made with two directly-controlled 2/2-way proportional valves with an air flow of 3.5 SCFM. Regulation is controlled by a microprocessor to provide repetitive precision of 0.44 psi with a hysteresis of 0.73 psi. Four regulators can be linked to each other without a base plate. Compressed air supply is possible from both sides, permitting extremely flexible use in a system.

NFPA PNEUMATIC CYLINDERS

The 3MA and 4MA series is the latest in a line of Parker NFPA cylinders spanning 30 years of innovative design. Through an innovative design, the cylinders are said to deliver superior performance resulting from reduced weight, low friction and advanced sealing technology. The cylinders are available in 1-1/8 to 8 in. bore models and are manufactured in Canada to provide a standard 3 day delivery with the capability to offer rush service when required.

ELECTRO-PNEUMATIC TRANSDUCER

The series EPTA Electro-pneumatic transducer from Dwyer Instruments converts an analog input signal to a linearly proportionate pneumatic output by modulating its control valves to regulate branch pressure. All models incorporate two low voltage valves, an integral in-barb filter, an analog 30-psi gauge, an anodized aluminum manifold, and brass barbed fittings. The series offers adjustable span and offset as well as manual override. The unit has no air consumption and is immune to mounting orientation.

PNEUMATIC ACTUATORS FOR VALVE AUTOMATION

Hayward Flow Control Systems has announced a wide range of pneumatic valve actuators and related control options for a diverse range of valve automation applications. Corrosion-resistant pneumatic actuators are available in a variety of air-to-air (double acting) and air-to-spring (fail-safe) ¼ turn spring return models with two and four piston rack & piston or vane designs, depending upon the models. All models are said to offer high torque outputs and come with a manual override, position indicator, and permanent lubrication.

PNEUMATIC VALVE MODULES

The Pneumatic Division of Parker Hannifin has announced the Dual 4-Way Valve for the Moduflex valves system series. The valve combines two 4-way independently operated valves into one Size 1 valve body. Thee valves can be combined with other dual 3-way or single 4-way valves of either Size l or Size 2 valves, without transition kits, to fit different types of applications. Moduflex Valves are available in 24 Vdc solenoid or air pilot operated versions with a universal manual override.
