Following the success of their popular Series VF1000/3000/5000 solenoid valves, SMC Pneumatics has updated this range of 5 port valves by improving their durability, reducing their power consumption and also lowering their operating noise. Designed for automotive and general machinery applications, these improved valves are still fully interchangeable with existing VF manifolds.
With the introduction of a V200 pilot valve, power consumption of the standard valve has been reduced to 1.55W from1.8W and when specified with an energy saving circuit, the consumption falls to only 0.55W. Noise levels have been dramatically reduced thanks to the introduction of an in-built wave rectifier, potential problems of unwanted foreign matter entering the valves have been addressed with the addition of an in-built strainer and ozone resistant HBNR seal material has been added to overcome any possible build up of ozone in the compressed air system.
