The new AVENTICS AV (Advanced Valve) pneumatic directional control valves are smaller, lighter and more efficient than most similar valves. The unique diagonal shape of the valve optimizes flow capacity. The AV03 valves feature flow of 0.3 Cv, and the larger AV05 feature flow of 0.7 Cv. The plug-in design allows for quick valve change-out. Configure your own custom valve manifolds online quickly. One scan of the QR code on the valve manifold using your cell phone or tablet, and you are immediately forwarded to your configuration via a wireless connection. Using the AVENTICS AES (Advanced Electronic System) you can add bus modules, I/O, or an E/P (electro-pneumatic pressure regulator).
The dimensions per flow rate are an important factor when it comes to compact valve construction. As machines and systems continue to be optimized, smaller installations are growing in importance. Size, weight, and easy integration into compact machine designs are the deciding factors in many applications.
The drive’s air consumption, valve connections, and flow controls on the tubing side determine valve selection based on the flow rate. Throttling should already be considered in the planning stage.
The option of integrating pressure control for individual valves or whole sections, flow controls, vacuum ejectors or pneumatic separation of pressure ranges increases the controller’s overall functionality. The possibility to change the type of electrical connection at a later date makes the system convenient and flexible.
