Norgren's Extends it's VM Series of Pneumatic Valve Islands
Littleton, Colorado, USA - May 2005. Norgren, the motion and fluid control specialist, has extended it VM valve island family to include the new VM15. Following on from the success of its VM10 this expands the range of Norgren's valve island solutions and delivers even more advantage to OEM's.
With an unsurpassed flow to size rate of 1.0 Cv the new 15mm wide VM15 continues to deliver the high standards set with the 10mm VM10. The new VM15 allows customers to specify a cost effective compact valve island solution. Previously, to achieve the flow rates the VM15 can deliver, they would have had to opt for a more expensive larger footprint valve solution. The VM15 makes a real difference in projects that require cost savings and reduced installation space.
The VM series valve manifold range provides a high performance, cost effective and value engineered solution that is easy for customers to use and configure to their individual needs. Installation times for the VM series are reduced thanks to the use of integrated push in fittings. Should machine specifications change the configuration can be changed rapidly via interchangeable valve types and is easy to add extra valves for more functionality due to its modularity.
Suitable for deployment in a wide variety of industry sectors the VM series compact design makes it ideal for inclusion in projects that suffer from space limitations. Its high performance engineered polymer construction offers excellent strength and stability for harsh environments and the series is particularly well suited to applications that employ chemical wash down procedures.
With the VM series customers can choose from DIN rail, through hole and sub base mounting options. Valve islands can be configured from 4 to 16 stations with single or double solenoids and with a high number of possibilities for manual overrides and tube fitting sizes the result is a range with over fifteen million different combinations. Featuring a clean and sleek design that is aesthetically pleasing to design engineers all wiring connections for the VM series are made to one face of the unit for tidiness and protection.
When a customer comes to specify the correct VM series island for their given application selection has been made simple. For convenience Norgren provides a software configuration tool which is available online and on CD. This provides the customer with a part number, price and dimensions. Customers can also download 2D and 3D CAD drawings in 13 file formats.
Norgren is also focused on continually upgrading its existing solutions to offer customers even greater advantage. For this reason the VM10 has been enhanced with added design features such as additional mountings, 90° multi pole connectors for applications that need additional space savings and extra customer labelling options.
