Norgren’s new miniature FAS series valves deliver high performance in a compact form
18 May 2006
New to the UK, Norgren has unveiled its FAS series of 10 and 15mm miniature solenoid valves that are ideally suited for applications where space is at a premium. From the simplest piloting and motion control projects, through to the most arduous and demanding fluid and gas control requirements, Norgren’s miniature valve expertise can make a real difference. Designated as Picosol (10mm) and Microsol (15mm) this Swiss engineered range of valves is reliable, durable and proven in a wide variety of applications such as piloting, water quality monitoring, printing, sanitation, medical, packaging and automation. Suitable for use with a wide variety of mediums the valves can also be utilised with aggressive gases and liquids.
What you get with the new ranges are solenoid valve solutions that feature a high performance to size ratio which are extremely reliable, cost-effective and are able to address challenging pressure requirements.
Both the Microsol and Picosol valves offer extremely high flow rates with the Picosol capable of delivering 32 l/min and the Microsol delivering 194 l/min. The low power consumption of the devices reduces energy costs and both models have a long life span in excess of 100 million cycles. Dependant on the model chosen, the valves feature extremely fast response times, typically the range can deliver figures between 8 and 10ms thus optimising machine performance.
Also part of the new series, Norgren offers the Microsol Interface. This device can aid in optimising high flow performance, as it is a pilot operated valve, which utilises the standard Microsol version as the pilot. The Microsol Interface is essentially a pneumatic amplifier that produces high flow rates and is capable of competing with much larger system valves.
The Microsol and the Picosol are available as pre assembled ready to use valve manifolds. Designated as the VE10 (10mm) and the VE15 (15mm) the manifolds deliver flow rates up to 32 and 194 l/min respectively and are ideal for use where a extremely compact, fast switching valve is required for motion or pilot control.
A prime example of engineering advantage, these products have earned several awards and an international reputation as a result of their innovative design and miniaturisation. In order to satisfy its customers’ most rigorous requirements, Norgren offers a large range of electrical connections and as an optional extra, these valves can be equipped with integrated electronic functions such as spike & hold circuit, surge suppression diodes, LED, with or without manual override etc.
