ASCO Numatics introduces a low-power solenoid valve series that offers 0.55 W power consumption and highly reliable operating performance. The new valve is suitable for process applications in the refining, upstream oil and gas, chemical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and power generation industries. The solenoid valve is also suited for applications powered by renewable energy sources such as solar panels. Its low power consumption permits the use of smaller battery packs and enables extended operation on the existing back-up energy source.
The low-power valve is designed to be wired directly into a plant’s bus network I/O interface without the need for an auxiliary power source. This means more discrete devices can be installed on a network segment. In addition, on PLC or DCS installation using traditional wiring, the need for an additional relay is eliminated, plus a smaller power supply can be used – reducing installation and operating costs. The highly flexible valve comes in multiple options for flow efficiency and maximum and minimum temperature and pressure ratings. It has ATEX, FM, CSA, and UL approvals and is SIL-3 certified.
