Emerson announces the launch of a new ASCO
low power proportional valve. The valve has been designed for the
accurate pressure control of air and neutral gasses in applications
where power is limited. The Sentronic LP consumes less than 4 Watts and
is available with a nominal diameter of DN4 and G1/4 connections. The
valve has a flow rate up to 470 Nl/min and three pressure ranges that
span 0-10 bar. It can be used singly or connected to a manifold for a
compact solution where multiple valves are required.
to the other valves in the Sentronic range, the Sentronic LP offers high
performance. With a hysteresis of less than 1 percent and excellent
linearity and repeatability the valves are ideally suited for
applications in the food and beverage, packaging, bottling and
automotive industries. The product can be manually set and adjusted
using push buttons and a graphical display, or by using the free to
download Data Acquisition Software (DAS). DAS enables the user to set
control parameters that can be password protected.
Sentronic LP offers a modular and compact footprint, and is very easy to
set up, making it a logical alternative to more complex proportional
control valves currently on the market. Communications and control is
via a 5-pin M12 connector. The manifold version enables up to 10 valves
to be mounted together on a compact manifold that has a common air
supply. The valve always delivers a stable pressure even when the flow
demand is variable. To ensure the safety of the process the valve will
hold the downstream pressure when power is lost.
