CLIPPARD Minimatic has appointed Air & Hydraulic Systems as the NSW distributor for its range of pneumatic and electronic control devices. Electronic valves and manifolds are part of this range, providing a cost-effective system for interfacing with electric and electronic circuits commonly found in gas analysis and the medical equipment.
Clippard EV/ET valves convert low-voltage, low-current signals into high pressure (7 bar) pneumatic outputs. Optional low-pressure/medium-flow and low-pressure/high-flow models are available.
The valves are precision-built two-way or three-way control valves, using a valving principle with no sliding parts. Complete poppet travel is 0.18mm, resulting in low power consumption and long life.
A recent addition to the range is the EVP Proportional Valve, which combines the features of the existing EV series valves with the ability to control air or gas flow based on current input to the solenoid.
The EVP series may be controlled using dc current, open-loop or closed-loop control, and pulse width modulation to cover a broad range of applications.
Special valves made of stainless steel with Viton or EPDM seals are also available and all valves are lubricated with oxygen-compatible lubricants.
