Valve and controller system

The Enfinity System combines an M2 pneumatic-control valve and a C2 controller, both available with an integrated driver.

Features & benefits

  • M2 instrument-grade, proportional, directional-control pneumatic valve uses a specialized linear-force motor instead of a proportional solenoid

  • M2 aperture is controlled at high speed, so response is quick to setpoint command changes

  • C2 enclosed high-speed, high-accuracy analog controller with multiple PID and feed-forward options; user-friendly digital LCD/membrane keypad user interface; independent scaling of command and feedback signals

Electric servoactuation system

Electric servoactuation provides linear motion and offers a convenient alternative to hydraulic actuation.

Features & benefits

  • Design of ballscrew extends life by twice that of traditional designs; draws less power than hydraulic alternatives without sacrificing precision or speed; applications include damper control, security barriers, pick-and-place robotics, and metal forming presses

  • Standard electric servoactuator features small footprints, maximum force of 70 kN, rod speeds to 640 mm/sec; absolute encoder transmits position and feedback data

  • Version for higher forces, longer strokes can be tailored to needs; force to 115.59 kN, rod speeds to 1,600 mm/sec

  • Servoactuation packages include servoactuator, servodrive, and commissioning software; automatically uploads preset system tuning parameters from absolute encoder when starting, to save time

Micro valves

Mini MV micro valves offer short cycle times, low-energy consumption, and high reliability.

Features & benefits

  • Electrically actuated 3/2 pneumatic valves screw directly onto the actuator, making hose connections between valve and actuator unnecessary; reduces interfering contours and assembly expense

  • Airflow and air connection threads specified for the relevant actuator; just 7 msec to switch; 900 million switching-cycle lifespan

  • Available in 1.5, 2.5, and 3.0 mm sizes and achieve a flow rate of 2, 5, and 9 cfm at 87 psi
