Series CA44 valves are two station valve manifolds for AS-i serial link (bus) applications, complying with AS-I specification V2.11 Rev. 1. Manifold choices include: with or without digital inputs, and with or without auxiliary power. The valve stations can be 4-way, 2 position valves, or dual 3-way, 2 position valves, or a blanking plate. The plug-in valve design simultaneously makes both the electrical and pneumatic connections when plugging the valve into place, eliminating the need to disturb electrical wiring connections.
The CA44 valve flow is 0.2 Cv (200 l/min) with a pressure range of 29 to 116 psi. Voltage is 24 Vdc with a protection rating of IP67 (NEMA 6). Up to four valve functions and four electric inputs are possible with just one AS-i address. The manifold is easy to install with all pneumatic connections on one side, and a valve can be replaced without changing the address. Series CA44 valves have a long service life of more than 100 million cycles.
The valves come with integrated push-in fittings for 4 or 6mm plastic tubing or M7 threaded ports. An Internet configurator is available for designing your own valve manifold. CAD drawings can also be downloaded. The manifold can be delivered fully assembled and tested.
