MINIATURE pneumatic specialists, Clippard Minimatic have updated their popular electronic interface valve, which is available from Pneumatics Direct Australia .
The range now includes intrinsically safe valves and a new manifold-mounted normally open-version.
These valves are precision-built 2-way or 3-way control valves, using a unique, patented valve principle. There are no sliding parts - complete poppet travel is a mere 0.18mm. As a result, low power consumption and exceptionally long life are major benefits of this design.
With a design life of more than 100 million cycles, many valves have performed in excess of one billion cycles in service.
Clippard electronic valves are quiet in operation, continuously rated and cool running. They are available with a variety of electrical and air connections and a choice of three voltages and three flow rates.
The small size of the valves makes them well suited to a wide range of applications in biomedical, environmental test equipment, computerised industrial automation and portable systems.
