August 14, 2017 — ASCO has announced that its Numatics G3 Series and Numatics 580 Series electronic platforms have been expanded to control up to 128 solenoid valves on a single valve manifold assembly.
The expanded G3 and 580 Series platforms feature process control architecture that permits the design engineer or end-use specifier to optimize the size of the control cabinet for the number of required valves.
The expanded valve platforms can support 128 Numatics 501 Series solenoid valves and 80 Numatics 502 and 503 Series valves. They are the only products available that can support 80 18 mm and larger valve sizes on a single manifold.
To increase the valve platforms’ capacity, ASCO added mid-station blocks with valve drivers and auxiliary power connectors. This approach allows customers to pay only for the capacity and functionality required in their design. A variety of Numatics G3 and 580 Series electronic protocols are supported, including Ethernet/IP DLR, Profibus DP, and Valve Sub-bus for distribution.
ASCO highly recommends that customers use its online DPM configurator when designing pneumatic valve manifold installations to eliminate errors and save time.
