Three-Port Valves

The Series VV061-Cube manifold comes in 6-mm widths with three port valves that can be used to operate small bore cylinders or as a pilot valve to operate air operated valves. It combines valve, PCB, base, and fittings as one unit for space saving. Valves have two voltage options: 24 or 12 Vdc. The 6-mm-width valve Series uses 0.55 W in standard configuration and 0.23 W with power-saving circuit and has a response time of 10 msec. The Cube manifold is available in four and eight station configurations and comes with two types of pipe connections: barb fitting to accept 4-mm OD tubing or 2-mm one-touch fitting. Valves are available with two optional seal material FKM and HNBR and the whole manifold complies with RoHS, CE, UL, and CSA standards.

The standard valve has a Cv of 0.004 (0 to 100 psi) and 0.008 in the low-pressure version suitable from vacuum to 44 psi pressure. The Cube manifold is available with 300, 600, or 1,000-mm connector-cables.
