Two new regulators Series, basic IR#200-A and precision IR#000-A, have
been introduced by SMC, offering customers enhanced design features that deliver
energy, cost and space savings.
Vitoria, Spain (May 7, 2015)
SMC, the worldwide leading expert in pneumatics, has launched two regulators,
the basic IR#200-A and precision IR#000-A that feature a new internal bleeding
structure, which almost doubles the flow rate and eliminates the fix throttle.
The result is a number of savings for those in manufacturing utilising pneumatic
applications, such as accurate balance pressure setting, contact pressure control
and residual pressure relief.
SMC said: “We are always seeking ways to enhance our existing product
range so that our customers can be as efficient as possible in terms of costs,
environment and performance. These two new regulators certainly deliver on all
levels and we are confident they will be a successful addition to our existing
The IR#000-A offers exceptional precision by achieving repeatability within
±0.5% of full span and low air consumption of just 1 l/min or less. Although
not as accurate, with a repeatability within ±1% of full span, the IR#200-A
features a bleed air ‘0’, generating less noise by reducing the
frequency of the compressor start-up. Their intelligent design also avoids the
need for purchasing additional components, such as a mist separator, delivering
cost and space savings.
Flexibility is key when it comes to both Series, as they are available in three
sizes with a trio of set pressure ranges. Together with a knob direction that
can be moved upwards or downwards, they also feature a digital pressure switch
Lighter in weight, these regulators are easy to handle and mounting is interchangeable
with the existing IR Series, making it simple for customers to adapt to the
