Norgren's VP51 Digital Proportional Control Valve with DeviceNet Delivers High Levels of Flexibility and Functionality
Littleton, Colorado, USA - May 2004. Norgren, the motion and fluid control specialist, has added more functionality to its popular VP51 range of proportional valves with the addition of DeviceNet capabilities. Providing command sign and feedback pressure via DeviceNet the VP51 is ideal for deployment in a wealth of industrial automation applications. The user of the VP51 can define individual requirements through the DeviceNet parameters and can set the application specifics needed for the unit simplifying set up which ultimately delivers benefits in terms of time savings and cost thus delivering that much desired competitive advantage.
Norgren specialises in sophisticated high technology proportional solutions that allow variable and precise in process control of pressure, flow, force and position.
Applications for the DeviceNet VP5 1 range include adhesive dispense, paper tensioning and laboratory sampling. The series incorporates advanced spool technologies thus allowing true step less pressure or flow control. The benefits of this combined technology are smooth response and low noise.
Employing glandless lightweight Teflon® coated spool valve technology the VP51 has the benefit of proven reliability with figures in the range of 30 million cycles and is particularly resistant to corrosion and wear. Suitable for output pressures in the range of 0 to 150 PSI the VP51 features low power consumption (<100mA/2.5W) and can operate in compressed air environments that are both dry and non-lubricated. Ambient operating temperature is set at 23°F to 122°F and the units benefit fronm IP65 protection. Further information on the Norgren range of proportional valves can be found at www.norgren.com
