Aventics launches ES05 pneumatic directional control valves
January 17, 2017 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Jan. 17, 2017 – Aventics is now offering an “economic and user-friendly” solution for applications with standard requirements in packaging and industrial automation.
Designed specifically to reduce the number of components, Aventics says it opted for a modular system for the ES05 with only 25 components. Orders are supplied as complete assembly kits. According to the company, all components are “unique which makes incorrect installation virtually impossible and only one tool is required for the job.” All fittings are of the same type and tightened with the same torque, which helps to further simplify assembly. The portfolio also includes the Essential Test Box, which tests the correct function and leak-tightness of valves before installation. Users connect the end and base plates (available with metric or inch ports) and can extend the system in pairs up to 12 single or double solenoid valves. The valves are controlled via single wiring with a type CI connector according to ISO 15217, a D-Sub connection with 25 pins, with AES valve electronics from Aventics, or an integrated IO-Link interface. AES supports all common fieldbus and Ethernet protocols, adds Aventics.
