Aignep, specialized in pneumatics since many years, launched a new modular solenoid valve. The new arrival in Aignep is modular and very compact, it also guarantees high performances. “This new series is completely new in our range – says Graziano Bugatti, managing director of Aignep –. It represent the achievement of a project, where we combined both pneumatics and mechatronics solutions. This will be the first of several products that will come to satisfy the demand of the market in this field”. In order to underline the importance of this project, Aignep has dedicated a specific catalogue to the 15V series. The new modular solenoid valve is characterized by the reaction time and by the easy communication with the control machine, both PLC and CNC. At the moment the 15V has two protocols available: Profibus and 37 Pin connection. As a second step the range will be upgraded with two new protocols: Profinet and EtherNet/IP. Every solenoid valve has a thickness of 15mm, the size is the same for both monostable and bistable and it’s possible to connect up to 32 solenoids. It can perform a flow rate of 830 Ml/min. The body of the 15V is made by aluminium; module’s body is made by reinforced technopolymer and the spool is made by nickel-plated aluminium. Pistons and seals are made by elastomer, sprigs are made by stainless steel AISI 302. 15V allows not only pressure application, but also for vacuum applications. Every pilot is placed in the same side where there also the push buttons are located. The standard bases of the valves are single, they incorporate the push-in fittings to optimize the space. The activity of every valve is shown by its led signal. The protection degree is IP67. It is possible to purchase both assembled valves or spare components to mount the 15V modular solenoid valve.
