New Electro-Pneumatic Pressure Control Valves
Electro-pneumatic pressure control valves convert an electrical signal proportionally into pneumatic pressure allowing users to change pneumatic pressure or force electronically.
Rexroth ND-5 Electro-Pneumatic Pressure Control Valves
The new ND-5 series of E/P's has excellent repeatability and are available with analog or serial link control options. The new ND-5 series of electro-pneumatic converter valves from Rexroth allow highly accurate, electronic remote control of pneumatic force or pressure. Models are available to allow analogue or serial link connection to the poppet type valve, whichever best suits the application. With a flow rate of over 28 SCFM, output pressure up to 150 psi, and a hysteresis of less than one psi, the ND-5 can handle a large variety of tasks such as tensioning or press force control. Models are available to accept current or voltage electrical signals, or serial link communication. Universal pneumatic port threads accept ISO G 1/4 or 1/4" NPT connections.
