Fast-Switching Valves

Feb. 17, 2005
Type-MH2 miniature, fast-switching valves provide flow to 100 lpm with switching rates of only 2 to 6 msec.

The poppet valves can be controlled directly via the 24-Vdc/1-A standard outputs of a PLC. In a subbase configuration, the valve measures only 10-mm wide, allowing compact assemblies. They are also available as preassembled, fully tested manifolds with up to 10 valves on a 14-mm grid. Operating pressure range is ?0.9 to 8 bar, in 2/2, 3/2, and 5/2-way NC and NO configurations. Port sizes include M7, G1/8 and 1/4, and QS4, 6, and 8. The MH2 is ideal for fast-moving applications, such as ejection, sorting, adhesive bonding, dosing, pharmaceutical packaging, and handling, as well as vacuum applications.
