Vacuum Generator, Multitasking / Manifold

Multi-function vacuum generator module VN

RoHS2 Compliant

The space-saving vacuum generator equipped with direct-operated solenoid valves is best suitable for high-speed and stable response

Advantages

The space-saving vacuum generator equipped with direct-operated solenoid valves is best suitable for high-speed and stable response

The low-profile vacuum generator is suitable for small space use.

Small size and lightweight

High speed, yet stable response is realized.(ON/OFF=Max. 5msec)

Direct operated solenoid valve is used for the main valve.

Tiny work piece is removed gently when releaseing vacuum with blow-off.

A dedicated blow-off air supply port is provided as configuration option, which enables pressure control by an external pressure regulator for fine-adjusted puff-air delivery.

Common supply port type is also available.

*Air supply port for vacuum generation and blow-off are common.

20L/min. of vacuum release (blow-off) air flow is secured.

Supply pressure: 0.5MPa

Two types of analog output sensor switches and four types of LED display sensors are offered. Digital indicator is provided as option for an analog type of sensor.

We offer two types of analog sensors, for negative pressure and for compound pressure that can be combined with a LCD indicator, and four types of LED display sensors that features one analog output+two switch outputs, NPN/PNP transistor output for negative pressure and compound pressure.

Detailed Safety Instructions

Warning

1.If continuous current is supplied to the solenoid for 15 minutes or longer, please limit the number of such energizations to 10 times per day maximum.

2.The solenoid valve of this product uses a current limit circuit, which is a feature that reduces the current value when the coil is kept energized.  Do not use in environments subject to vibrations or shocks outside the specifications. It may lead to troubles such as valve malfunction.

3.Tighten screws with appropriate tightening torque referring to the digital catalog. Improper tightening may cause an air leakage, a falling off of the product or damages to the product.
