Cheminert® C55 Integrated HPLC Selector

OEM Applications

VICI Valco’s new Cheminert C55 Series Selectors are compact assemblies designed specifically to be built into an OEM system.

Using the well-proven Cheminert HPLC injector design and the 24 volt motor from our popular microelectric actuators, the C55 needs only to be connected to the instrument’s power supply. Control is simplified to require a single momentary contact closure that steps the valve to the next position; a separate contact closure moves the valve to position 1 (Home). The optional serial interface board permits RS232 communications for both random position input control and confirmation of valve position. A low pressure solvent selector / fraction collector version is also available in the same compact and cost-effective platform.

All these features are built into a compact and lightweight package, available in 4, 6, 8, and 10 position configurations, stainless or PEEK. The C55 can simplify instrument designs, trim costs, and minimize time to market.
