FLORHAM PARK, NEW JERSEY, U.S.A. - March 1, 2017 - ASCO has introduced the ASCO Numatics 617 Series SentronicLP proportional electronic regulator for accurate pneumatic pressure control in applications with limited power supplies.
"The 617 Series' 4-watt power consumption offers design and control engineers a highly reliable and cost-effective solution for pressure regulation in low-power environments," said Andy Duffy, vice president sales - Americas, ASCO. "With its advanced DaS software, the regulator can be optimized for maximum performance and safety in any application."
With hysteresis of less than 1 percent, excellent linearity and repeatability, and stable control under flowing conditions, the high-performance proportional valve is ideally suited for applications where precise pressure control is required. These include manufacturing applications in the automotive and tire, food and beverage, and packaging industries.
The 617 Series regulator is available in three sizes - 1/4 inch (4 mm), 3/8 inch (8 mm), and 1/2 inch (15 mm) - to cover a wide range of flow requirements. It also incorporates the following features:
Exceptionally high flow: the 1/2-inch model's 5,200 Nl/min flow rate is the highest in its class
Versatile, compact, and lightweight design
Intelligent digital communication with simple operation
Compact manifold available
The 617 Series' 1/4-inch model is available in a compact manifold mount that holds up to 10 valves. The space-saving design requires only one pressure supply, enabling economic, simple, and quick installation. Most configurations of the 617 Series pressure regulator are available for rapid delivery as part of the ASCO Express quick shipment program.
