Press Release Summary:
DIN-rail mountable MK72 Intrinsically Safe Solenoid Drivers isolate and power loads in classified hazardous areas. They are available in 14 different models to provide output circuit voltages of 12-26 VDC and output current of 22-70 mA. Output circuits and inputs are galvanically isolated from each other, eliminating need for external grounding. Applications include OEMs and end-users with solenoid valves and intrinsically safe pilot lights.
Original Press Release:
Intrinsically Safe Solenoid Drivers Offer Current & Voltage Specific To Intrinsically Safe Solenoid Valves
TURCK Inc. has announced new MK72 Intrinsically Safe Solenoid Drivers to isolate and power loads in classified hazardous areas. These new models provide current and voltage that is much more specific to the needs of intrinsically safe solenoid manufacturers and users. This provides more usable power to the hazardous area. List price is $198.00.
The MK72 is available in fourteen different models to provide output circuit voltages of 12, 16, 18, 22, 24 or 26 VDC and output current of 22, 32.5, 37.5, 40, 42.5, 45, 57.5, 62.5, 65, 67.5, or 70 mA, depending on model, to meet the needs for intrinsic safety applications. The output circuits and the 19-29 VDC inputs are galvanically isolated from each other, eliminating the need for external grounding. Additionally, the extra power delivered to the hazardous area also makes intrinsically safe LED pilot lights shine brighter.
Designed for OEMs and end-users with solenoid valves and I.S. pilot lights, the newest additions to the multimodule MK Series measure just 18 mm wide, offering superior packing density and requiring only half the space used by many drivers. Other features include green LED indication for "Power ON," and yellow LED to indicate "Output ON." Full-size screw terminals and DIN-rail mounting allow quick and easy replacement. MK72 Drivers are FM and CENELEC approved for Class 1, Division 1, Group A.
