ASCO Numatics low-power solenoid valve series offers .55-watt power consumption while providing reliable operating performance. The valve is designed for process applications in the refining, upstream oil and gas, chemical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and power generation industries. The valve is also a good fit for applications powered by renewable energy sources such as solar panels. Its low-power consumption permits the use of smaller battery packs and enables extended operation on the existing back-up energy source. The valve can be wired directly into a plant’s bus network I/O interface without the need for an auxiliary power source. This means more discrete devices can be installed on a network segment. In addition, on PLC or DCS installation using traditional wiring, the need for an additional relay is eliminated, plus a smaller power supply can be used – reducing the installation and operating costs. The valve comes in multiple options for flow efficiency and maximum and minimum temperature and pressure ratings. It has ATEX, FM, CSA, and UL approvals and is SIL-3 certified.
