Fieldbus-controlled pressure regulators mount directly
21 November 2008
Festo has launched the world’s first fieldbus-controlled proportional valve regulator that mounts directly on a valve manifold. This offers unprecedented control flexibility and conveys numerous cost-saving advantages. The VPPM-MPA proportional pressure regulator provides an exceptionally easy and precise means of varying air pressure to pneumatic actuators.
Fieldbus-controlled pressure regulators
The VPPM-MPA proportional pressure regulator features an 1/8 inch proportional pressure valve and is available with a pressure range of 0-2 bar, 0-6 bar or 0-10 bar. The VPPM-MPA is able to maintain extremely tight regulation under a wide range of operating conditions, and provides an exceptionally accurate level of control.
VPPM-MPA proportional pressure regulators can either be commissioned remotely via fieldbus or Ethernet, or locally by using Festo’s CPX-MMI handheld control unit. Both the programmed setpoint and the actual pressure value can be monitored locally or remotely, and users can choose to display pressure units in bar, MPa or psi. The regulators are capable of returning a comprehensive range of diagnostic data via fieldbus or Ethernet, and are also equipped with front-panel LEDs to indicate power and operational status.
