ASCO Numatics has introduced its Numatics 501 Series directional control valve. The general purpose automation valve is designed for directional control and piloting applications requiring compact size, high flow capability, and energy savings.
The pressure shut-off option permits users to replace individual valves without stopping their production process — reducing line downtime and maintenance. The combination of the pressure regulator and the Numasizing® engineering tool can dramatically minimize air and energy consumption. The valve’s modular design also permits easy configuration and modification.
The new sub-base mounted valve is well suited for in-panel valve piloting applications. Its high flow rate, compact size, and optional mounting plate enable efficient use of cabinet space. A dual three-way version enables the placement of two, three-way valves in the space of a four-way valve.
