The Numatics 502 series of pneumatic directional control valves target automation and piloting applications in the automotive and tire, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and packaging machinery industries.
The Numatics 502 Series pneumatic directional control valve accommodates high flow rates, and works with a broad range of components and accessories. Joining a family of high-performance sub-base mounted directional control valves (501 Series and 503 Series), it consumes low power and is easy to install, configure, and modify on site. The design is also compact, measuring just 18 mm.
“The valves have up to 30% greater flow than the products they replace, making them ideal for design engineers desiring a more compact valve, or for those who want to increase a machine’s work capacity using the same size valve,” says Andy Duffy, vice president, sales, Americas, ASCO. “In addition, these new directional control valves offer the greatest range of pneumatic sandwich components (pressure regulators, pressure shut off, exhaust flow controls) that allow an almost infinite number of configurations based on the customer’s requirements.”
The 502 valve meets ISO 15407-2 standards while maintaining high-flow characteristics. It includes a dual-pressure sandwich regulator to improve performance, and works with the company’s Numasizing engineering tool to supply better accuracy for reduced compressed-air and power consumption. It is designed for use with the next-generation Numatics G3 fieldbus electronic platform.
“Whether the customer requires ISO certification or a standard product, the 502 Series is optimized to provide the greatest combination of reliability, spool technology, electrical connections, and sandwich components on the market today,” says Duffy.
