SMC Pneumatics has released details of its IC controller which is now available in Australia.
When used in conjunction with an electropneumatic regulator such as SMC's series ITV0000, the IC controller enables the downward pressure applied on a cylinder to be precisely controlled.
The IC is suitable for applications using air and non-corrosive gases in the semiconductor industry, automotive related industries, light electronics industries and in device manufacturing.
The unit comes with a programming function, enabling four sets of input to be preset. Four different pressure and switch output ranges are features of the controller, as is an output voltage and output signal switching function.
An IP64 enclosure is standard on the IC, which is just 48mm wide, 48mm tall and 123mm deep.
SMC claims the new addition to its product range offers users reductions in total operating costs over conventional systems through the greater degree of control the product affords.
