Aventics releases the ES05 Essential Valve System

April 18, 2016 – Aventics announced the Essential Valve System series, a modular valve system. ES05 orders are supplied as complete assembly kits. All components are unique and all fittings are of the same type and tightened with the same torque. The portfolio also includes the Essential Test Box. With this test box, the correct function and leak-tightness of the valves can be tested, before installing the valve systems. This is useful for volume users and Aventics distributors. 

The valves come in a robust housing made of high-performance polymers and are especially stable and compact. Users connect the end and base plates and can extend the system in pairs up to twelve single or double solenoid valves. The valves are controlled via single wiring with a type CI plug according to ISO 15217, a D-Sub connection with 25 pins, with AES valve electronics from Aventics, or an integrated IO-Link interface. AES supports all common fieldbus and Ethernet protocols. If necessary, the pilot coils can also be turned at a later stage to realize mixed connection configurations. With a switching time of under 35 milliseconds for all valve functions, dynamic action is guaranteed for short cycles. With single wiring, the ES05 complies with protection class IP65, so the valve system can also be installed in decentral locations, even in environments exposed to splash water. All other connection types comply with protection class IP50.
