New Direct Acting XM Valve Series
The Pneumatic Division of Parker Hannifin Corporation is pleased to announce our New Direct Acting Valve - XM Series.
XM Inline Valve: The XM Valve is a 1/8", 2-Position, Single Solenoid, Spring Return 3-Way or 4-Way valve with AC or DC Operating Voltages. The 12 and 24VDC coils are rated for Mobile Voltage Operation. 3-Way valves can function as Normally Open or Normally Closed valves. Optional integrated individual flow controls are available on the 4-Way valves which meters the exhaust flow from each working port to the exhaust port of the valve. This option eliminates additional component flow controls and fittings between a cylinder and a valve.
IEM - Inlet Exhaust Manifolds: 3-Way and 4-Way Inline Valves can be mounted on the same IEM Manifold. 3-Way valves can be configured for Normally Open or Normally Closed function by mounting the 3-Way valve 180 degrees opposite to each other. Additional gaskets are not required for this feature. 4-Way valves with integrated flow controls can be mounted directly to the IEM Manifold since the adjustment screws are located on the body of the valve away from the manifold.
Subbase Manifolds: Inline valves have the working ports (2 and 4) tapped in the valve body. Subbase Valves require a manifold with working ports tapped 1/8" in each manifold station. Each manifold consists of a segmented subbase and an end plate kit. XM 3-Way and 4-Way subbase valves can be mounted on the same manifold assembly. Standard function of a 3-Way Subbase Valve is normally closed. Port Isolation Discs are used if 3-Way Normally Open and Normally Closed functions are required on the same manifold. The 4-Way integrated flow control is available on 4-Way subbase valves as well.
PDN offers the XM Valve as the replacement to the Microking Series Valves which will be discontinued August 1, 2007. If you would like information on how to cross a MicroKing Valve that is being used in a specific application to an XM Valve, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a part number / application details and contact information. PDN will contact you to assist in this cross reference.
