Compact Valve Offers High Flow and Preferred Connectivity
Richland, MI, February 23, 2009 - The Pneumatics Division of Parker Hannifin announces the release of its new Isys Micro Valve, a compact valve manifold offering high flow and Preferred Connectivity to Rockwell Logix(TM) Architecture. Parker designed the Isys Micro using an innovative back-to-back valve mounting style with a 42mm wide manifold that holds 4 valves and offers a 0.35 Cv flow. For easy installation, Parker sells the Isys Micro complete with all valves, fittings and mufflers. The valve is also Fieldbus ready, making it ideal for centralized or decentralized applications in markets such as packaging, process control, alternative energy systems, semiconductor, automated assembly, dairy systems, fixturing systems, and water treatment systems.
"This Isys Micro valve design offers functionality for a range of machine configurations," explains Chris Landis, Product Sales Manager, Pneumatics Division, Parker Hannifin. "The flexibility of this valve means companies can use 25 Pin D-sub connections for smaller machines or employ simple node connections for larger machines using fieldbus. It also means full Isysnet Fieldbus functionality is available for large, complex machines that use valves, inputs, and outputs. With Isysnet Fieldbus, Isys Micro can provide full 256 input and 256 output capacity. It can handle up to 4 Valve Driver modules, controlling 32 valves each, coupled to a single fieldbus node.
"Best of all, our partnership with Rockwell Automation allows us to offer this fieldbus solution with Preferred Connectivity to the Rockwell Automation LogixTM Architecture. Parker can provide all the information needed for the device profile pre-loaded into the Allen Bradley RSLogix5000TM software, reducing configuration time by up to 70%. By eliminating data entry error and installation time, clients gain full confidence that their device is configured properly."
With an IP65 rating on the valves and IP67 rating on the communication, input, and output modules, the Isys Micro Valve solution with Isysnet fieldbus package is an excellent choice for "point-of-use" applications. More information is available at www.parker.com/pneu/isysMicro.
