ASCO Numatics (Emerson)
Part of the worldwide Emerson corporation (Industrial Automation division), ASCO Numatics is a leader in the supply of high quality solenoid valves and fluid power products.
ASCO solenoid valves are used to control all common fluids. The extensive product range includes everything from on/off valves to entire flow control systems.
Numatics products are at the forefront of pneumatic and motion control technology. The products include pneumatic actuators, air preparation equipment, valves and accessories.
In addition to standard and specialised product ranges, ASCO Numatics has design, build and test capabilities within the Benelux for specific project requirements.
ASCO Numatics produces more than 5000 types of standard solenoid valve, and more than 30,000 special versions for the control of all types of liquids and gaseous fluids in industrial environments. ATEX operators for zones 0, 1, 2, 21 and 22, and TÜV-approved versions for safety loops are also available.
Low Temperature pilot valves for cold spots around the globe
Low Temperature pilot valves are more in demand since Oil & Gas installations are being built on cold spots around the globe. Extremely cold areas include Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Alaska. The growing need for solenoid valves which can be used in areas with very low ambient temperatures has led to the release of a series 327 basic and high flow pilot valves.
ASCO Numatics introduces ATEX certified valve islands for mounting in fieldbus remote I/O cabinets
Unique features enable easier installation, commissioning and maintenance
ASCO Numatics introduces an ATEX certified solenoid valve manifold that is ideally suited to installation in cabinets containing fieldbus remote I/O. The valve island is ATEX Certified for Zones 1 – 21 and has many unique features that reduce the cost of installation, commissioning and maintenance, and ensure minimal downtime.
The new ATEX valve islands enable pneumatic and electrical devices to be installed in the same cabinet – removing the need for bulkheads and electrical links and providing significant savings for customers. They have many applications in pharmaceutical and fine chemical plants where ATEX devices are being installed to ensure higher safety and flexibility for batch processes.
The valve manifolds provide safety and flexibility and are fully assembled to reduce costs. The electrical and pneumatic connections are designed for speed and ease of use and the integrated isolation device allows maintenance without stopping the process.
The Ex ia pilot is compatible with all remote I/O manufacturers.
The manifold features a simple electrical connection for four intrinsic coils/valves. The multi-pin IP20 removable plug can be pre-terminated if required and, because there are no terminal screws, connection is fast and reliable. The pneumatic connections are also quick and easy with a gasket on the sub-base allowing either direct side or base mounting. This space saving feature makes machine mounting easier and reduces enclosure costs.
Start-up is quick and easy with local LED and manual override for valve piloting control/diagnostic. An individual shut-off (hot swap) valve integrated into the sub-base allows the process to continue while one valve is being changed. The system is lockable to prevent accidental operation.
The four station sub-base with 8 station option, is available as a 5/2 single coil (monostable) version or spring return 3/2 function (by closing port 2). Each valve features an integrated shut-off device and is rated at +5°C to +50°C for a flow rate of 600 l/min.
The Ex ia pilot with low power (0.2W with LED), is compatible with all Ex ia remote I/Os and barriers connected to fieldbus (or point to point). With one unique valve covering a large range of actuators, stock management and inventory are reduced – providing cost savings for the user and distributor.
ASCO Numatics new catalogue covers pilot valves and systems for the process industry
World leader ASCO Numatics announces a major new catalogue covering its comprehensive range of pilot valves and systems for the process industry. The binder style catalogue provides a wealth of information on valve solutions from high flow to low power, from direct mount Namur to safety shutdown systems.
The new catalogue gives information on international standards and approvals, along with technical specifications for a wide range of 3/2, 4/2, 5/2 and 5/3 solenoid valves. ASCO Numatics solenoid valves are noted for their highly reliable operation and its valve manifolds will interface with all major protocols including DeviceNet, Profibus DP, Ethernet/IP, Profinet, etc.
The 488 page binder is divided into 14 chapters with the introductory section covering the basics of solenoid pilot valve technology. Within the product pages, solenoid valves are broken down into easy-to-source sections each covering the features, material and electrical characteristics, ATEX / IECEX / SIL solenoid specifications, metric dimensions and ordering information.
The new ASCO Numatics catalogue is available online or you can register for a copy now at www.asconumatics.eu/wbs/w3b.exe/_en/3877/4080/4576/
