July 18, 2014 - AAutomationDirect announces CMV pneumatic compact modular valves which provide versatility and easy assembly. The compact modular valves are designed for performance, flexibility and modularity combined with sturdy mechanics. Each valve is enclosed in a reinforced technopolymer protective shell that acts as a shock-absorber and prevents the infiltration of dirt. The smooth, rounded design makes the system ideal for applications requiring frequent washing. All pneumatic connections are on one side, with built-in push-to-connect fittings. The system offers a variety of flexibility from one to 16 valves, with input and output terminals for tubing of different sizes; this allows the versatility to mix valve numbers and size numbers as needed. The 24VDC electrical signal is relayed from one valve to the next by gold-plated contacts so the electrical connections are entirely automatic. Using one inlet end plate and one blind end plate, the valves can be configured in any combination and replaced individually as needed. CMV series valves are available in four port size combinations, and 3-way/2-position, 5-way/2-position and 5-way/3-position configurations. NITRA compact modular valves have various mounting positions and require no additional fittings; available accessories include 25-pin pigtail cables, 35mm DIN rail mounting brackets, pneumatic release tools, and more. Compact modular valve prices start at $70 and are backed by a two-year warranty.
