Automation solutions provider SMC has created the narrowest 5-Port Solenoid Valve currently available. At just 6.4mm, the new JSY is more compact and lighter than other solutions, making it extremely practical and adaptable for use in a range of applications where space is at a premium.
One of the most outstanding features of the JSY is that, despite its compact size, it can achieve an incredible flow rate of 179 to 1551 l/min.
The valve is also designed to deliver high levels of productivity. Thanks to its speed, cycle times are decreased and productivity is increased, which makes it a great addition for installations where improving efficiency is key.
In addition, the valve consumes just 0,2W or less, helping to reduce the overall power in the system and subsequently the heat generated in the electrical cabinet, which together lead to cost savings.
In addition, JSY offers high degrees of versatily so that the valve block can be configured in the best way for the installation. Different types of connectors can also be assembled to suit the customer’s needs, making installation quicker.
A spokesperson from SMC said: “We understand what our customers want and have a clear commitment to weight optimization. Designed to fit everywhere, the new JSY doesn’t compromise on quality. While it may have the shortest valve width in the world, this compact solution delivers impressive performance.”
Its compact size and high flow levels makes JSY practical and adaptable for use in a wide variety of applications, especially for robotics, such as painting and welding appications. It is ideal for moving parts, like rotary or indexing tables, as well as in tool changes in robot arms.
JSY is available in three sizes: JSY1000, with a 6.4mm width; JSY3000 with a 10mm and JSY5000 with a 15 mm width.
